Cushion or not, this is one painful inning. Come on, Gio. Keep it together.

At some point, this whole 'building up his confidence' angle is so overblown. This guy was done 25-30 pitches and at least two runs ago.

Jesus, well that's one lead halved, headed to the bottom half of the inning. I fail to see how leaving him out there, only to certainly sit him now, helps his confidence at all. That's probably why I'm over here and Davey's been in the bigs for a thousand years, of course.

The Grounds Crew going WWE on George, Tom, and Abe was pretty funny. I love **** like that.

And Jackson promptly walks the lead off guy, and gives up a double. WTF?

I'm no Nats fan, but why is Jackson pitching? The Cards rock him.

Goat's tweets are classic. It's going to be a long fall.

Cue the "If you had Strasburg..." turds.

Strasburg or not, the Cardinals were the better team.

Non-issue really. But it's a positive if your a Nats fan knowing he'll be there next time around....

JEEEEEEEZ they left GIO in wayyyy too long argghhhhghghghghgh. STRASBERG OCTOBERFEST.

Maybe like half way through the season when you realize your team is really good maybe you save strasburg for the playoffs?!?!? I mean if your going to shut him down after a certain amount of games, WTF so just save 2-5 games FOR THE PLAYOFFS HOW ILLOGICAL IS THIS.

How can you win with thinking like this???????? I mean really, would pitching 1 more game really have injured him? But i guess you can argue he gets to rest a bunch more but whatever. It's so tough to root for DC sports, they have the worst luck.

They were the more experienced team, and they had the benefit of an umpire that decided nothing but a swing amd miss or foul ball would count as a strike. Storen pretty much had to throw a fat pitch to get the call.

Sitting arguably the most dominant power pitcher in the game during a postseason run when he's healthy is the exact opposite of a non-issue. There were a multitude of ways the Strasburg situation could've been handled so that he'd have pitched at least one game this series. And anyone who says this series would've played out exactly the same way if Stras had pitched is off their ****ing rocker.

Johnson did a crappy job managing. They played the game after the 6-0 lead like it was over, everyone looking fot the flashy homer and not tryinjg to manufacture any runs...until it was too late. Then keeping Storen in there after the Cards tie it and when clearly he wasn't getting the benefit of the strike calls on his slider. I will be very happy if I never see Espinosa in a Nats uniform again, 59 RBIs or not. He's an inning killer.
