...Get it!? Hey, Stephen Strasburg stunk: 5.0 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR, 84 pitches-51 strikes. Regardless of the line, when Carlos Lee steals second off of you, you deserve to lose anyway. "We gotta flush it." (Stephen Strasburg, via MASN, 8/28/2012) And by flush it, he means the game, not the season, folks. No stopper: 5 game losing streak, but who's counting? And don't say "everyone". Silver lining: Bryce Harper met Dickie V. before the game. Feel better now? (Screencap via MASN/TV) Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

GIFcap: Best Filthy Pitches Of The Week – Kershaw, Felix, Anderson, Strasburg, Greinke

Clayton Kershaw‘s curve is alright, I guess. Probably a reason for that perfect game. Brett Anderson is back and looks healthy. Stephen Strasburg is just unfair. That’s just a silly pitch, seriously. Zack Greinke‘s troll curve has to be one of my favorite pitches
