And his replacement, John Lannan, as expected did just fine the other night, allowing two hits over seven innings and no runs. Ironic that in the week or so since the announcement the Nats division lead has grown to its largest this year. Clearly they are collapsing and doomed without SS.
Glad to see that straw man has returned.

I am sure John Lannan will be just as good as Strasburg in the playoffs.
