The Braves drew a crowd estimated at more than 40,000, including 12,000 tickets sold over the past 24 hours. The crowd was well above an average Monday crowd with the Nationals in town.

Well its good to know something is still working for the Nationals, because their offense and defense have stopped producing entirely. It's too bad the rest of the team has been choking when it is their chance to finally be in the spotlight because this young man has been fantastic.

People want to see Strasburg play. It's just getting to be sad that the team can't give the fans anyone else to root for right now.
