Astros beat the Nats....Again

Another day, another Astros victory over the Washington Nationals. I know it's not the case, but it seems like Houston has played them every other day so far this spring. In fact, the teams have played each other three times, with the Astros taking all three games by a combined score of 34 to 14. They were actually scheduled to play Washington in another game that was rained out last week.

Of course, the Astros haven't faced possibly the Nationals best pitcher in Stephen Strasburg. That leads me to my question of the day: is it a good thing that Houston has played such a bad team so often? Does their competition level play a role in preparing them for the season, or is any team capable of tuning them up in time? I guess it boils down to whether preparing for the regular season is about the process or the results?
