Oh no! This throws all the calculations of when his first Nats Park start will be into disarray. Oh, the humanity!

GHF: if the whole pitching thing doesn't work out, the kid could always get a job as a rainmaker. :-)

Good one, Section222.

I've got tix for the 6th and 10th. What are my chances?

Zuckerman says at NI that the June 4 prediction assumed two extra days of rest already, so this rainout make it even more likely! Sorry Cap.

If there are no more rain-outs, Strasburg pitching tomorrow puts him in perfect alignment to pitch at home on June 4th, and because of the Nats schedule, again to close the home stand on June 10th, so it looks like CapPeterson1 has more than good chance of seeing him pitch on the 10th.

I think now that his schedule has been setup perfectly, it would be a crime to not have him in the Nats rotation by the 4th, and with a bit of praying, maybe even the 30th in San Diego, so there's a different kind of pressure. Not starting him at home in front of a crowd of 40,000 plus expectant fans might be a bit too much. Better to pitch in a road game and have the possibility of his coming home with a game and maybe even a win under his belt.
