Horse - Some good points in your comments and i wanted to address this one.  If Stras started and the atmosphere became more intense with a bigger spotlight and more pressure, would that have necessarily been a good thing?  The Nats already had a bunch of young guys facing that kind of intensity for the first time.  For the most part, they generally wilted - JZ, Gio, Storen, etc.

First, thanks.  Second, absolutely possible.  Hopefully we'll be able to find out next playoffs what this team looks like going into a series with lots of national attention as the clear favorites to win.
