Nationals Still Planning on Not Allowing Stephen Strasburg To Pitch in Playoffs
This is the dumbest decision of all time.
If you have a chance to win a World Series you go out guns blazing. Strasburg wants to pitch, so let him pitch. You could hold him out of the playoffs and he could still blow out his elbow in the first game of next year.
There are no guarantees in sports except you don’t get many chances to win a championship, so the Nationals are being extremely foolish and stubborn.
The Nationals still plan to shut down Stephen Strasburg at the end of this season, and the right-hander will not return to pitch in the postseason, according to MLB.com’s William Ladson.
