I'm not working my way through the whole thread right now, but did anyone in the media question the Barves decision not to allow Medlen to start earlier in the year to avoid the Wild Card game?? Had he had a start or two against the Nats before the line up was healthy, the Braves might have picked up enough ground to win the division. Holding him back instead of starting him early and using his innings in the regular season, like we did with Strasburg, could have avoided the one game play-in entirely.
Maybe they could not do that because the Barves lack the starting pitching depth the Nats have and would not have had a Cy Young candidate and two other pitchers with around a 3 ERA available to start, But at least some media jerk should be a jerk to them like they've been to Rizzo. Maybe FatKruk will mention this or Wussy Kaat will write an open letter.
