Disagree with both TPE and LBJ on this one. You guys can continue the discussion, as I'm not going to get into a long winded statistical pissing match with you two mutts!
I think Tom Boswell's Recent Article makes a pretty eloquent argument for the Nats' continued chances. Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Edwin Jackson and Ross Detwiler? Not too shabby, boys. Not too shabby. We'll never know what would have happened, but I do know that the Nats are built for the long haul. Protecting the recently rehabbed arm of your ace is just another piece in the long haul strategy.
PH, we agree on The Boss, but not on this one. Since I am a long-suffering Cleveland sports fan, I can strongly say that I'd take 1 Title over thinking my teams will have a chance for years to come (I realize the Nats aren't assured a title this year, but go for it!).
The Cavs went through it with LeBum for years, the Browns couldn't get past Elway in the '80s, and Indians couldn't get one more strike against the Marlins.
Go for the title when you can!
