Cal Ripken Jr. casts vote for ending Stephen Strasburg's season
Here's the guy you might listen to in the matter of whether the Washington Nationals should shut down Stephen Strasburg for the season, regardless of the result of his second MRI today: Cal Ripken Jr.
"Yeah, I think that's a smart move. You look at his history and he was pretty protected with Tony Gwynn at San Diego State. A lot of people with that sort of arm might want to pitch him, start him one day, pitch him in relief the next day, and then start him again three days later. But Tony Gwynn I think handled him once a week. He's going to places with innings that I don't think he's been before.
Ripken also took into account the fact that the Nats aren't exactly ciphering their magic number.
"It seems like he's had a couple of arm injuries and this latest one, there's no real reason to kind of push it here, in late August."
