Again, Maya does a damn good job... Except for one inning. I don't care what anyone says, someone who can shut down teams totally 5/6 innings, and that one inning clearly due to nerves? The guy wasn't in the minors long enough. He clearly isn't adjusted to pitching in the majors and is still ridiculously anxious. I'll take a pitcher that's dominant 5/6 innings his first two starts any day of the week. I think Maya has shown he can be what he was hyped to be, if he can get over the nerves and other kinks.
The 2 balks in the same inning was odd.  Let him pitch some and then start him up fresh next year.  What else can the Nationals do, right?
