In the heat of a pennant race, the Washington Nationals will not have their ace for the rest of the season. Stephen Strasburg threw his final pitches of the season last night in a rough loss to the Marlins.
It’s such a strange situation because there’s not really a “right” or “wrong” answer here.Do you agree with the move? Would you absolutely hate it if your team shut down their ace at this point in the season when you wanted a championship or would you be happy they’re preserving him long term?
Here are a few good takes on it.
