If he's still looking good and showing no signs of injury I'd keep him in the lineup. I wouldn't increase his workload down the stretch or anything but the way that team is playing they have a legitimate chance at making a WS run this year. You can't pass that up. Atlanta had 14 straight playoff seasons and still only got one title. Even if Washington put together a run like that, there are no guarantees. You've got to take every chance you get.

It's amazing what the Giants winning in 2010 has done for the playoff chances of other teams with bad-mediocre offenses and good pitching in the eyes of most fans.

If Washington ****ed up Strasburg's arm permanently they would be a laughing stock for quite a while.

Only in an All Star game would you bring in your closer in the first inning

Pablo Sandoval likes to show the majors why hes normally the most deserving starting 3b .

I can't lie I have a ****eating grin on my face knowing fairweather giants fans voted Sandoval in to start and he hits a triple.

Prince should've had that. Could have easily stretched out and got that. Well, maybe not easily.

Pablo doesn't "deserve" to be there since he missed a month, but he's easily a top 3-4 third baseman in the league when he's healthy.

You might have an argument with AJ but that rios part screams homer.

Also, Sandoval already contributed to the game so I'd say he proved he deserved to be here.

Yep. Utley was gone all year, Freddy Sanchez of the giants broke completely or he might be there.

I mean ****ing eh Brandon Belt finished 2nd in fan voting and I think Brandon Crawford also took 2nd. This game doesn't matter and the whole making it matter thing has only made the game sillier.
