Re: The Strasburg Mistake

I mean I hear ya, in the national media this topic is discussed endlessly.  Tbh tho, I'm always surprised at how little attention this topic gets on this board. 

I'm not, tbh, the one thing that all the national media have in common - besides flapping their gums - is that they have no skin in the game. It's easy for a bitter, old ass like Leo Mazzone to act indignant. He doesn't have to see Strasburg everyday, or deal with Dtras's parents if Steve blows out his arm again. Think anyone in the Cubs front office gets a Christmas card from Mark Prior.

A lot of the fans here have some skin in the game. Anyone who has posted here a few thousand times, has skin in the game. Many of us want the Mats to be good for as long as they can, and a big part of that is taking care of an asset like Stras. I get it, a post-season run is a rare thing, but I have more confidenece that Rizzo is doing the right thing for this franchise than some used up old fool like Leo Mazzone.
