Well, those certainly aren’t the words that anyone, short of maybe the Washington Nationals, was hoping to hear. But, here we are.
Of course, it’s easy to say this favors the Nationals, who may well decide to go with a well-rested Stephen Strasburg in lieu of Tanner Roark for tomorrow’s matinee. And yeah, if I had a choice I’d much rather go up against Roark, but beating Strasburg sure would be nice too.
We’ll find out tomorrow.
