I'm not trying to be pessimistic but wasn't Corbin's last start a disaster? I admit I did not watch it because I was in Chapel Hill letting my Clemson Tigers give me a near heart attack, But I could have sworn that he coughed up six runs in 1 inning after the Nats put up a 9 spot. We should have confidence in him why??
yeah but that stadium especially a night game is perfect for him because the ball doesn't carry. Also besides Turner and maybe Will Smith all their big power are LHH. Muncy Kd 3 times vs Corbin in May.

Dodgers are fine against LHP.

This is a team without weakness. Nats have to play very well and the Dodgers have to choke.

Corbin
Sanchez
Strasburg
Scherzer
Everybody

And I like our RH lineup against their lefty starters.
This is the right answer. I like Corbin in Game 5 with Strasburg possibly ready for an emergency appearance if needed.

Can Howie handle second base? Cabrerra hasn't been great against LHP and I'd like to get Zim in at first

Against Kershaw, Ryu, and Hill...I'd love to see this lineup:

Turner
Eaton
Rendon
Soto
Kendrick
Zimmerman
Suzuki
Robles

I'd take Zim's bat over Cabrera and sacrifice whatever defensive shortcomings of Howie compared to Cabrera at the keystone.

What would you call it when the overwhelming favored team with 107 wins loses to the WC team with 93 and the worst bullpen in the history of playoff baseball.

That's called choking.

I'm happy... but that wasn't a playoff series.

The Nats just won their first ever WildCard game.

I'm expecting
G1: Corbin
G2: Stras
G3: Max
G4: Sanchez
G5: Corbin/Stras

Refresh my memory, do teams go with the 5th starter in the playoffs/series?

No, because you never play more than 2 days in a row with the off days to travel.  You do need a 4th if staying on regular rest.

Who cares what it's called.  It was a win or go home game that the Nats came through in.  That's progress.

MLB Network said last night that the WC Game is, in fact, considered a "series."

Make room for the "2019 Wild Card Champs" banner in right field...
