In a shocking decision, the Nationals have shut down Stephen Strasburg before his expected Wednesday start. He finishes the season just shy of 160 IP, 200 K, and 1 contribution in the playoffs.
Many will second guess this decision, but Mike Rizzo refuses to listen to anyone who disagrees with it. He would make a pretty spot-on American politician for this reason, and also because he is an old white man.
We will miss you Stephen. As much as the bats missed your breaking pitches.
On a happier note, the John Lannan era begins again! …yay…
