Nats... want to shut up all of the Strasburg talk? Win tonight
You know if Edwin Jackson and Jordan Zimmermann pitched as well as Ross Detwiler did yesterday, nobody would be complaining about Stephen Strasburg being shut down.
So it is up to Gio Gonzalez. He needs to shut down the Cardinals, end their reign as World Champions and move the Nationals to the NLCS.
Once there, Strasburg complains are off. This team making it to the NLCS would be quite an accomplishment no matter what.
Win today and the complaints will at least die down.
Lose today and be prepared for the what ifs all winter through the next fall.
