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.
