I was in Harrisburg today for the Senators game against the Reading Fightin’ Phils, the AA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.
I knew I would be missing Anthony Rendon as today was a day off from his rehab assignment, but I knew that I would likely see Brian Goodwin, a center field prospect working his way back to AAA after a shoulder injury last year. However, there was something puzzling — and strangely familiar — about the line-up that manager Brian Daubach ran out today.
Goodwin, Jeroloman, Hague — I feel like today's #hbgsens line-up was encased in amber in 2013

A third of the line-up had a place on the 2013 Senators — Goodwin was the starting centerfielder, Rick Hague was the starting second baseman, and Brian Jeroloman was the back-up catcher (behind Sandy Leon) who suffered an horrific plate collision in the Eastern League Division Series that year.
Taking the mound for the Senators today was Paolo Espino. Against him for the Fightings was Tom Windle.
