If Strasburg throws game 1 or 2 the entire complexion of this series would've changed.
Strasburg got shelled bad in two of his last three starts and had a very pedestrian 3.80-something ERA after the all-star break. He was hardly the superhuman all-star people make him out to be, or the guaranteed lock down pitcher.
