The Nationals' Max Scherzer is just a pleasure to watch. He didn't have his best stuff last night, and even plonked a couple of batters. He adjusted on the fly to go 8 solid innings. 10+ strikeouts for the 5th straight start.
If only this team can find a solid, mature closer and a little mid-relief, they should be a force to contend with.
Melancon may be available soon although the Nats may not want him back. Giants have been done for awhile. Play-offs every even year continues. This year got terrible quickly.
