Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season
Strasburg vs. Medlan, a study in how to handle a pitcher recovering from Tommy John. Prior to this season the two of them had the surgery within a few weeks of each other. The Braves opted to use Medlan as a long reliever and ease him back into the starting role later in the season. The Nationals opted to send Strasburg to the hill every fifth day. I don't know if the Nationals had any idea that their season would be this succesful but when it's all over it could be the Braves with a sharp young ace heading into the post season while Strasburg bites his fingernails on the pine.
Searching for something, a million miles and a ways to go.
