Game 42 discussion thread: Nationals at Mets

The Nationals so far have navigated the most difficult schedule in the league, according to several measures, but tonight they’ll begin a stretch they should be able to take advantage. After playing the Pirates on Monday, the Nationals will play their next 11 games against the Mets, Orioles, Brewers and Padres. That makes 12 straight games against teams who currently have losing records.

Tonight, the Nationals will rely on Tom Gorzelanny, who in his last start allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk in just 4 2/3 innings. The Nationals have a rested bullpen after not playing yesterday, and Todd Coffey will be available. He still has a baseball-shaped welt – with seams visible – on his right elbow after being smacked with a line drive, but he said he could have pitched yesterday and has full range of motion.

As always, talk about the game right here.
