Surprised there is no mention here. Big talk in DC is that SS was offered the ball for Game 4 and he declined. With the rain out yesterday (which Roark was to pitch), it made SS available on his normal day's rest.

There was some jumbling of words at the presser as everyone wanted to see if Dusty would confirm Strasburg would pitch and he rambled on about sticking with Roark because it was his turn and how Strasburg had done his bullpen that day (which was not accurate) and how he was under the weather.

All I know is, when you're supposed to the top dog (or want to be), you take the ball whenever you can take the ball. And while I understand he may be under the weather, the level of medical care these guys get should at least warrant him offering up a game time decision to see how he felt. He bailed yesterday afternoon for a 4pm game today per the rumors.

Put it this way, as a baseball team, you pitch your #1 WHENEVER he is ready and able. You don't match him up - there is no point. He is ready per his rest schedule yet the team is dancing around not pitching. This leads me to believe it's coming from SS.

Talk of him lacking toughness has been around for a while. It seems things have to be lined up perfectly for him to go. In an elimination game where the stars aligned and pushed the game into your lap - you should be foaming at the mouth to get on the hill. You should be begging for the fucking ball.

Should I find out he is avoiding the mound because of a sniffle (as Mark Teixeira stated), I will straight up question his manhood and how much he wants to be the bulldog. Something like that could really turn me off of a player.

He best be battling pneumonia.

Agreed

This is an elimination game, he should want to pitch.

He's going to be on a short leash and would probably help them if he can give them between 3-5 innings, then either Roark or your pen takes over

Just got a blip on my phone that Rizzo/Baker are at the podium to discuss Strasburg starting Game 4. I assume this means they are going to put him on the mound and not simply "discussing" the situation. We shall see.

It's a good thing he was under the weather or he might have struck out 25!

Maybe he should be exposed to mold as part of his game prep from now on.
