You know, all this kerfluffle about shutting down Strasburg is going to be much ado about nothing when they have an 11 game lead in September. The Nationals are leaving the Braves in the dust and my dear Bravos just can't seem to ever beat them. I'm about 10 days away from going all in on my prediction for a Nationals/Angels World Series.
The concern is with the playoffs.

Although a dominant regular season usually leads to stagnation before the playoffs.

Yeah, I know. They want to run him out there until the end of August and basically rest him until October. A few people have been up in arms saying he should be out there every start so they have a better chance at winning. I'm just saying they should coast into the playoffs as the NL East champs even without him in September.

No, it's about giving him full rest before next season. They have no plans to play him in the playoffs. And he wouldn't be as effective in the playoffs anyway because, even in their off days, pitchers need to keep with their pitching routine.

Wow, I just looked it up you are right. Holy shit that is unbelievable. The franchise finally has a dominate team and they are going into the playoffs without their ace. They are going to have some pissed off fans. Making the post season is no given next year. Maybe they should listen to DeRosa after all.

^ Those same fans would be pissed off if Strasburg got injured again and had to sit out another year.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Tommy John is a crap shoot. It's not a perfect science. He could blow out his arm in his second start next year. You just don't know. Strasburg is not hurt right now. They are being a little overprotective if you ask me.

Timby can you do me a favor. Your avatar is very distracting, yet I always chuckle when I look at it. What is the story on that thing. Who is she?

The lady depicted is Sabrina Brimhall, who participated in Season 8 of Hell's Kitchen on FOX, in 2010. She was a particularly catty, fussy lady and wound up aggravating everyone in sight, resulting in Chef Gordon Ramsay dismissing her from the competition in Week 11 due to her being batshit crazy. The avatar comes from a segment in which she openly despised her teammates on the female team, and ranted her ass off.

"That bitch:"

Yeah, I guess I just figured they were going to rest him awhile in September. It's going to be hard to justify not pitching him in the post season without a legitimate injury. Even Leo Mazzone thinks it's stupid and that ought to tell you something.

I actually know one person who has a true solid claim to being a Nats fan. He's a DC resident originally from Montreal who was an Expos fan before they moved.
