Sit your ace because of his IP and you deserve to lose.  

The fans should completely boycott game 1 next year.   Empty stadium would speak volumes.

NATIONALIST!

It would be funny if they never make the playoffs again for the remainder of SS's career.

If they haven't made it by Year 6, good luck trying to get him to re-sign in Washington. Ownership is going to have to fire Rizzo if the Nats don't advance.

I don't know if they have to fire anyone regardless of advancement.   

But, as a fan, I'd be most unhappy.   Depending on how that plays out, and how much fan unhappiness is taken into account by the Nats, there might be some asskissing to do.

I was gonna say...he'll be a Yankee by then.  And Harper will follow him.

Since his agent was a driving force behind it, I really doubt this would play into whether he would re-sign there - not that he was going to anyhow.

Its great drama though -watching the Nats lose in the first round while they save SS for some future day...do they think the NL East will be this easy ever again?
Rizzo has to be crappin his pants...

I'm totally with this sentiment.  I hate this idea so much that I'm rooting hard against the Nats as long as Strasburg is on the team.

GO NATS!

DAVEY DESERVES IT!

Not just losing, but losing like that is going to really heap the hate on Rizzo. No way Strasburg lets the Cards back in the game. Gio and Storen couldn't find the strike zone. Storen was pitching scared, like he was afraid to get hit.

Well, since Strasberg only pitched 159.1 innings before they shut him down in the regular season, he still had two bullets left before his arm turned into a pumpkin. I bet Rizzo would have liked to use those two outs in the ninth inning...Hahahahahahahaha...that is just too great.....the kind of loss that will reverberate through that hapless franchise for the next 33 years or whatever it was since they last sniffed the post-season.

I hope they never make the playoffs again while he's a National.  And that the fan base lets the manager, GM and ownership know every minute.  It's a travesty.
