The DC area is caught up right now in Nats fever.  It’s all anyone talks about. The Nats are legit and they are likely going to the playoffs.  The bigger question right now is about phenom Stephen Strasburg and his pitch count. His limit was set at 160 before the season began. No one really expected this type of season so it was just an abstract notion.  As he gets nearer to the magical number, it’s not just an exercise anymore.

Shutting him down, will remove their ace from the rotation.  I’m not a huge MLB fan nor am I a Nats fan, but this is a good thing to think about.  Protect the player for 5-7 years down the road or keep him going for right now. The NL has never been more wide open for the Nationals to make a deep run.

So dear reader(s), what say you?
