The cynic in me immediately thinking

By: Torpedoman

that Max who's bedeviled with Kershaw-itis in the post season is pulling a fast one here. Knows a loss does not kill the Nats tonight. But it keeps him from being the goat in any loss tonight, it guarantees that Strasburg pitches do or die high pressure gm 6. THEN in comes the hero, up off the sickbed to pitch the series decider.  If he screws up gm 7 he has the excuse of struggles with the back spasms, if he pitches to his capability and/or his mates start killing the ball again, he's the WS hero.. He only becomes the hero but dodges ever being the goat. 

I hope Joe Ross pitches the game of his life!!!!
