Isn’t the Dodgers resting their best pitcher until game three kind of arrogant?

It would be if Kershaw was their best pitcher.

Ryu was their best pitcher this year. Everyone knows that.

FanGraphs is high on the Nats. Have them at 45% to win this series and 10% to win the World Series.

He’s had a second half just like Max.

Davey Martinez said Strasburg approached him today and said “I want the ball.”

Not to be too prophetic but that's exactly what Riggins said to Gibbs (verbatim) prior to the 1982 playoffs.  Redskins won the Superbowl.  On the back of Riggins.

@MarkZuckerman
Stephen Strasburg will start Game 2. Davey Martinez said Strasburg approached him today and said “I want the ball.” Martinez also noted that makes him available for potential Game 5 on full rest.

No restrictions for Strasburg tomorrow. Viewed his 34-pitch relief appearance as kind of like a between-starts side session.

Strasburg said he knew he was good to go for Game 2 after he got a good night’s sleep. Said his arm has felt great all year. Though when asked if his relief appearance was comparable to a bullpen session, he said “probably the most adrenaline I’ve ever had for a bullpen session.”

Or... did Fedde go to Dave and say "Stras says he wants the ball"?

Yea. The guy who gives up one more earned run a game is the ace.  :hysterical:

I bet Zimmerman and Suzuki get starts tonight.

That's what I figured too. Kendrick made 2 errors at 1st. And Gomes doesn't swing the stick as well as Suzuki.

The whole team was 0-4 yesterday, so it might take more than just putting Zim and Zuk in the lineup.  They need to wake up and hit the ball.

Honestly, just need Tony to hit again.

Yeah it's not going to fix the problem.

They just need to get the bats going. Get the confidence up.
They need to RALLY. So I'm just gonna wear my rally cap starting with the first pitch.

Sanchez needs to be an option out of the pen.

he's likely for game four, unless they go with Corbin on short rest.

Again, when you get paid 20+ million, you're going on short rest in the playoffs.

Sanchez and Voth are relievers this series. The need to start an inning and not be brought in with runners on. But they are far more reliable at this point the Rodney or Suero.

I choose a rested Sanchez over rushing Strasburg. Give Strasburg game 3, which will either be for the series lead or to keep the thing alive.
Idiot.
