The absolute worst signing in Nats history. Screw the apologists who refer to his 3 inning outing in game 7. How many games did he lose in the past three years?

It'll take some time but don't worry, Strasburg will eventually claim that throne. It's not his fault, but it is what it is.

He actually pitched really well in 2019. He was instrumental in getting to the postseason.

But since then .... yea. . . .

He was quite good in 2019.  3.25 in 33 starts in the regular season, in which the team went 21-12. 

The last two, yikes.

Yup. Injured and ineffective versus just ineffective and owed a ton more money.

I'm a big proponent of starters "pitching to contact," but ... Patrick takes it to a whole new level.

Corbin may have thrown his arm out to help the team win the World Championship.  Since then, he and Stras have never been the same.

Corbin just has no control, Stras is different.

If opponents can lay off the stuff in the dirt, Corbin really has no "out pitch." He's not fooling hitters at all.

He's gonna make a career out of fooling the Astros for 3 innings...

I will give him an excellent 2019 other than that one appearance versus the Dodgers.

World Series game 7 was his finest moment, but he has turned into Gio 2.0

That's an unfair insult to Gio. We got a good bit more out of him before he crashed and burned.

Gio had a sub-4 ERA, made 30+ starts, and threw 175+ innings every season from 2012 -2017 except one in that stretch. Not an ace, but if Corbin gave you that we'd be ecstatic.

sub 4 ERA? That’s like saying a batter hit above .250.
