wouldn't be against skipping him a turn when possible, yeah i know we're not blessed in the rotation right now but i can see a case for frshening him up

No happening in this 20 game stretch. September.

inclined to agree, but i reckon he could use it. The division ain't over until it's over but he has been a liability in recent starts

Just like Scherzer was at the beginning of the year. It will pass.

Velocity looked fine. Last time I saw him pitch at Nats Park, he was out about a hour/hour and a half or so long tossing and stretching. Today, he got out there about 30 mins before first pitch and tossed a little bit and did some BP work. Just seemed odd to me.

That's good to hear.  I mean, that his velo looked good.

Stadium gun overestimates, always.  The broadcast had him sitting 93-94 and topping out at 95

Oh, no doubt. They only had Gray at 94-96 (I don't recall if I saw a 97), and I know he throws harder than that.

Pitch F/x says he hit 97.25 yesterday: http://www.brooksbaseball.net/velo.php?player=544931&b_hand=-1&gFilt=&pFilt=FA|SI|FC|CU|SL|CS|KN|CH|FS|SB&time=game&minmax=ci&var=maxmph&s_type=2&startDate=03/30/2007&endDate=08/18/2016

He's in a bit of a rough patch. I'm confident he'll get out of it. Just sucks his ERA has blown up so much. Almost an entire run after three horrific starts.

Too bad he's not a hockey player.

Change-up isn't working

Looks like he's not getting batters to swing at it. I read an article that speculates perhaps he is tipping his pitches. Maybe they are on to something.

I just finished Smithians post on another thread  on most teams using 11 starters per season. Up until today I believe we only used 8. Lopez =4, Giolito =3 and Petit=1. I was thinking that perhaps we needed to give Stras and Scherzer a missed start. This is probably the best way to do it.
