I was at the game Monday night about ten feet from Strasburg on the field celebrating. There was this, compared to him, short lady with black hair and yellow dress or blouse. Hugging him, crying... I assume it was his mother. I note this only in relation to the mention of Stras not starting.
Yeah, we are far worse for needing three SPs and having only two. At the same time, I fear even worse come re-signing time this will fester and brew. If we make the playoffs again, all is forgotten. If not... She looked so proud, and while I am not a mind reader, Stras... didn't. I really wish they'd at least have him prepared for a couple innings in relief. Because he's the best we have, and to prevent a bad situation down the road.
