Czabe was talking about this yesterday, he thinks that Stras will be pitching in the playoffs. Apparently Manny Acta has commented that nobody in baseball believes that Stras will be shut down. Davey isn't a young guy and he wants to win this year; when he was with the Mets they thought they were going to win multiple championships but fell short so that he knows that you go all out to win when you can. Czabe also suggested that Stras will be a Yankee in a few years so why save his arm for them. The suggested course of action is to phantom DL him for a few weeks and then bring him back for the final run.
While I'm not saying they wouldn't do it, I think it would be incredibly stupid to do it. We'd all love to see a WS in D.C., but at the same time, at what cost? What if we win it all but Strasburg goes Kerry Wood on us? Instead of one WS we could perhaps have several. I dunno man... I want so bad to have a winning team, it's been since the Terps won the NT, but I'd hate to do but sabotage the future at the same time. Is this damn near the definition of a Catch-22?
