Hi guys - I'm a complete baseball novice so go easy :-) In the past year since I've been following baseball & the Nats, I've seen a lot about Strasburg. If he's so good, why isn't he playing in games like tonight's? Surely he can't do any worse? Genuine question.
Nats management is claiming it's for his own good, but it has more to do with an baseball rule regarding players contracts. The Nats could lose a lot of money if they bring him up too early.
If I can find the article again, it explains the incentive to keep the best prospects in the minors.
