The hard part is done for Nationals. Today is their first game since May 17 not against a team from the AL or NL East. They’ll play the Rockies, who are having a dreadful – they’re 27-44, and their rotation is so bad they can only find four starters, and one of them is Jeff Francis, tonight’s starter, who has an 8.56 ERA. Stephen Strasburg will face them on a wickedly hot night – it was 102 this afternoon and hasn’t cooled much. Talk about the game right here.
