I'm surprised anyone is surprised.
Not surprised, but I am sad. I've loved watching him pitch the past decade...

For sure, he was electric on the mound more often than not but I had zero hope he'd be able to return to being anything resembling that.

Jackson Tetreault might get the nod tomorrow, he's scheduled to start in AAA.

History is a bad start often precipitated Stras going on the IL. Almost like an excuse for the poor outing. After good games, he was invariably fine. We shall see.
winner.

they'll need to release a guy or put someone on the 60 day IL.  Let's see what Stras's MRI shows. :(

I didn't hear enough whether he specified what was not feeling right after the bullpen session.

This is going to be the worst contract in baseball history. And completely foreseeable. 

At current inflation rates the Strasburg deal gets more reasonable by the day.

Dave Martinez managed us to a WS Championship - thank you! But you sacrificed Strasburg and Corbin!  Thankfully, for him- Max saved himself!

And don’t forget we have the Corbin contract as a close second.

No, the Chris Davis contract has this one beat by far.

Lol, not even.

Davis posted a 113 wRC+ his first year of the deal. He also played in the majority of games.

No, Strasburg's contract is probably the worst in sports history. Its going to cost the Nationals 7 years of any kind if competitive window, and likely require the team to trade Soto.

Yeah, playing in a majority of games and hitting .146 for one season and .167 for another season, that’s fanstastic!

Pitchers are fragile these days; hence, it's hard, imo, to justify mega-contracts for any of them. As for 2019, the Nats approach and world championship justifies going all out, the future be damned. If you're about saving arms, you're deluding yourself. Stras and Corbin might well have been what we see now, regardless of 2019 workload.

Wow. I thought we might get at least a few starts out of him before his next IL stay. Not even...How much did all 4 2/3 innings in 2022 cost again? LMAO

I still get steamed when I think back to when they held back Strasburg from the playoffs back in the day. They could’ve won the World Series that year.

I think Strasburg’s career is over. I would recommend he move to a relief role, but that would never work. Stras needs his routine. Days of rest/preparation.

As amazing as 2019 was, in a way, it also led to the Nats demise.

Sad.

After 2019, I was all for signing Rendon and letting Stras go elsewhere. I'm totally biased toward position players. The right decision, in hindsight, would been to sign neither. Can you imagine the outrage though if that had happened?

You make a great point.  What would have happened if we lost to Milwaukee in the 2019 WC game, and Strasburg never became the World Series MVP?  Would we have given him 7 years, $245M.  I don't think so.  Bottom line for me is that I wouldn't trade the 2019 results, even if we would be better positioned today.

You are correct. If they wanted to stay competitive they could have signed 2/3 very good players for the money saved. Of course that would still leave the question of extending Trea and how to replace Max.

our payroll is $129 million this year and won't get anywhere close to the cap any time soon, Strasburg's contract isn't impacting this team right now.
