My point is the way the 5 games played out Strasburg pitching wouldn't have been a sure win, especially with the run support provided to JZ and Jackson in Games 2 and 3. Yes they got shelled, but if they both give up 2 or 3 runs in each game the Nats still lose.
And if Strasburg pitches Detweiler is coming out of the Pen. So that would negate his great performance in game 4. Jackson would be in that spot, and we all know how that would of ended.
