Thought I wanted the Nats to play the Cards, but now I'm not so sure -- kind of getting nervous. Cards have ice water running through their veins in the playoffs.

plus first two games in St. Louis and no Strasburg and the Cardinals were the second best offense in the NL = Cardinals in 4 over Washington.
Yeah, the format is ridiculously moronic.

Losing the first round will be bad enough, but if we get swept I'll be distraught.

yeah I think the Nationals will lose in 4, but won't get swept.
Haha, I'm an idiot and can't read numbers apparently.

They need to make the season 156 games and the wild card round best of 3.

Think today's game is much more of a must win for the Nats than the Cards.

Dear god, please let the Nats win.

Hoping the fact Jackson pitched and Strasburg isn't in the rotation kills the nats.
Even if Stras pitched, Gio, Zim and EJ (who still would have pitched) have all sucked.

Such a stupid argument.

Good thing the Nationals have Strasburg pitching tomorrow to save their season...oh wait
C'mon, Stras would probably get rocked too.

I'd like to hear a case on how Stras pitching would have made a difference. Other than Desmond, NO ONE can hit right now. Stras would have to throw a perfect game for us to even have a remote chance.

@AdamKilgoreWP: Since the last weekend of the regular season, the Cards have outscored the Nats 48-19 in six games.

@acomak: The #STLcards have now outscored the #Nationals 20-4 in the last 2 games. 22-7 in the series. It's 8-0.

Stras changes that how? Good lord.

If you think Strasburg sitting on the bench for the playoffs doesn't play a factor you're crazy.
There's no way to know, that for sure. He was tipping pitches his last few starts and it's not like he doesn't get emotional and rocked from time to time. All starters so far have been knocked around, fair to guess Stras would have been too.

Also, is Stras going to make up that run differential on offense as well? I know he's a good hitter and all, but I don't see him bringing in all those stranded base runners. I don't see him getting everyone not named Desmond and Zimmerman hitting.

so much this. I knew this would happen. The Nats could have Strasburg out there giving the team confidence they can win instead of having some Detwiler dude out there.
What does that have to do with their ZERO runs today, though? Det was also one of their best pitchers in the second half of the season and down the stretch.

I love Stras and his potential, but it's not like his stuff would be guaranteed and isn't prone to getting lit up as well. Also, he would only cover ONE game. They haven't been good enough to win any (got lucky in Game 1) so it's all moot anyway.

I just don't think this was their year -- with Stras or not.
