No depth in starting pitching? Have you seen our #2-5 pitchers? A couple of games with Lannan will not hurt us, and he's won the last two games we've asked him to play. Gio and Jordan are both poised to replace Strasberg as the ace once he's out for the season, and Edwin and Ross are having fantastic starts this year.
And when it comes to the bullpen - our starting pitchers haven't pitched too many innings this year, putting a lot more pressure on the bullpen, the starting pitching staff should (hopefully) be able to eat up a lot more innings down the road. We've also made improvements, mostly removing H-Rod and CMW.
Also, for what we're lacking in outfield (though Bernie will obviously give you a run for your money!) we are making up in infield D. Espinosa, Zim and LaRoche are great, and Lombo may not be as great at 2B as Espi but he's still good.
We're not infallible as a team (obviously) and the Braves are giving chase - but I promise you that the reason why the Nats are leading the NL East is NOT solely because Stras is pitching, as this article seems to imply. It's not all doom and gloom after he's shut down, we have a lot more depth than this writer thinks.
Those are my thoughts
His article isn't completely wrong but he seems to be cherry-picking examples from both sides.
