(Washington Post)   DC has a baseball team in the postseason for the first time since 1933. So do the players spray champage all over themselves like idiots? Nah, they sip it out of glasses. "We have a much bigger picture in mind"   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 53

srhp29: No team has ever won 19 post season games, so they are screwed.


I laughed so loud I woke up the dog who gave me a dirty look.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: DC has a baseball team in the postseason for the first time since 1933. So do the players spray champage all over themselves like idiots? Nah, they sip it out of glasses. "We have a much bigger picture in mind", will be beaten 4-2 in the NLCS by the Giants

/you heard it here first


Because the 1-5 record against the Nats this year was just some weird statistical aberration.

Lurves it.

Gosling: To save him for "later", which for all you know could be 15 years of cellar-dwelling. Or a blown-up arm next season no matter how much it's babied and a premature career end.


That's not how you plan for the future. If people planned the way you're reasoning, they'd spend all of their money immediately and then shoot themselves in the head. Fark it, you're gonna die anyway. You know that. Smart, strategic planning requires some assumptions. And the Nats are saying that their pitching staff, which the is best in the league even without the best pitcher in the league, is gonna be fine this year. It's open to second guessing, but this is what they did last year w/Zimmerman, and it's what they're doing Strasburg, it's what they've always said they're gonna do, and they're sticking to it. That's what counts, in my book.

srhp29: They should have shut him down in April/May, like the Braves did with Medlen (into July even before he became a regular starter), so they would have him available down the stretch and into the post season.

I somehow don't think that management was really thinking playoffs this season or that would have been the obvious play.


Is it obvious? The Nats are up 5.5 games on the Braves. Wouldn't having Medlen in their rotation for the whole year have narrowed that? Now they'll have to use him in a 1-game playoff... and not in the first game of the divisional series. So... who's smart now? Who's planning better now? The Nats have a lead in the NL East, Gio, Zimmerman and E Jax set to go in the playoffs. Nobody knows the future, but I like my chances with them alone. And I like having a fired up Strasburg for 200+ innings coming back in the spring. It's good to be a Nats fan right now.
