Man, you guys are putting way too much weight into a small sampling of playoff performances.   Is past playoff performance any kind of reliable predictor of future playoff performances?  Everyone thought Cliff Lee was the most amazing playoff pitcher ever and then he wasn't.  Strasburg had a rep of being a snowflake when it mattered, and now all of a sudden he's mister clutch.   I'm sure regular season performance is a much better predictor for future playoff success.   Probably the most key factor is the ability to be healthy and strong going into the playoffs.   Strasburg was this year, and Scherzer and Harper weren't.   Next year, it could be the opposite, or the same.
