The Nats got what they desrerved in shutting down perhaps their top pitcher becasue they had predetermined before the year they would do so.
That's right. That was poetic justice last night.
There's a difference between a really good pitcher and an ace. The Nats should have had their ace on the mound, not sitting in the dugout. He should have been doing what Verlander and Sabathia did in their respective game 5's. The Tigers had a 6-0 lead too...and there was no way in hell they were taking Verlander out of that game.
