I wonder how long it will take for the Nationals to get some respect. One of the five best rotations in the league, easily, and their prime competitor just demoted their ace? Nope, they won't be competing for a playoff spot come August
So why'd they trot Darvish for the 9th? Didn't they just pay $Obscene for this guy?
CGSO. You'll see teams try to get their starter a CGSO every once in awhile. it's a bummer that I benched him but this is very encouraging. This is actually why I don't try to get cute with sitting/starting and use the start em if you got em approach.
I'm shocked they tried to get Yu the CGSHO. With the troubles he had been having with control, and with the quality guys Texas has in the pen, it made sense to me to get him out with 7 scoreless innings recorded against the Yankees and a big boost in confidence. The good a CGSHO would have done to his confidence/psyche is far outweighed by the bad a meltdown in the 8th or 9th would have caused, IMO. And one big inning is always around the corner for the Yanks.
