The Stephen Strasburg Controversy
As expected, the Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs Game 4 was postponed due to inclement weather. The original thought of this happening was that RHP Stephen Strasburg will be on the mound for Game 4. Well, that didn’t go as planned. After the announcement that the game was postponed, Dusty Baker went out to talk to the media. He would then break the news that Stephen Strasburg was under the weather and RHP Tanner Roark would be taking the mound for Game 4. Lets just say Twitter didn’t react to this to well.
Welp seasons over. Dusty had a chance to do the right thing and he screwed it up. https://t.co/uCL7YNgEX9

The Nationals were given a gift and took it back to the store without opening it.

The part I can't get passed is if Strasburg was that sick, why was he having a normal run through w/guys on Tuesday? Send him home.

#Nationals fans: "Thank god for this rain delay, now we can start Strasburg Game 4."
Nats: "We will start Tanner Roark."

With that being said, Stephen Strasburg has a lot on his plate this afternoon.
