Found April 08, 2013 on Nationals Enquirer:
"That was a tough ballgame. They’ve got a bunch of good hitters and Stras threw the ball all right. But he didn’t hit his spots when he needed to. It cost us." (Davey Johnson, via Washington Times, 4/7/2013) Reds 6, Nationals 3: Well, at least there was that one changeup to Votto. Strasburg just didn't have it (5.1 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 4 BB, 5 K, 114 pitches), Nats drop 2 of 3 to Reds. Hey, it was a bad day for Aces elsewhere: David Price (5.0 IP, 10 H, 8 R, 3 BB, 3 K), R.A. Dickey (5.2 IP, 10 H, 8 R, 2 BB, 5K) got roughed up; Justin Verlander lost too. Feel better now?

Blue Jays Look Good on Paper, But May Be Overvalued in AL East

This is R.A. Dickey-lous
