But what about the future?!?1
Wouldn't you rather potentially make the playoffs in 2015 than have a shot at a title now?
To be honest... while I'd love to see Strasburg pitch the entire year... I know he won't... but anyone that thinks it's best to hold him now and is counting on future success as if it's a given will likely be sorely mistaken.
No one is counting on anything, this year or in the future. All we are saying is that an organization that knowingly jeopardizes its prized assets would lose credibility with its fans, players, and the sport.
