Game 8 discussion thread: Nationals at Mets

Gorzelanny is the Nationals fifth starter, but by one advanced measure he actually had the best 2010 season of any Nationals starter. Gorzelanny had a 3.92 FIP last year, the lowest among any of the five 2011 Nationals starters. (FIP uses a formula to measure how a pitcher performed independent of his defense, adjusted to represent an ERA.)

Facing a left-handed starter (Chris Capuano) for the first this year, the Nationals will try to win the series, pull ahead of the Mets in the standings and guarantee at least a .500 road trip on their first road trip. Talk about the game right here.
