I don't get this innings limit thing. I would assume he's pitching in the playoffs right? Otherwise what's the point of an innings limit?

Once he reaches 160 innings pitched, he's done for the year. No playoffs, no world series, no nothing. DONE.

Nope.
That's fuking retarded, and completely defeats the point of an innings limit.

The limit was never about saving him for the playoffs..

Also does the misc understand that even without Strasburg the nats still have one of the best rotations in baseball?

And why is that? Was the cardinals rotation last year that much better?

tentatively agree with this.

if the playoffs started today the Nats would have a better rotation than at least 4 of the 5 AL teams (I like the Rays rotation) and better than at least 3 of the NL teams too

No, the limit is to save his arm so that they can have him long term.

Why do they want him long term? Ostensibly so they can win a World Series, right?

The countless injury experts they talked to said it was best for his long term health to put him on an innings limit. Theyll be in the postseason next year with Stras so its really not a big deal. Theyre not going to suddenly fall off the map after this year..

And btw, ask Nolan Ryan how it went when he ignored all advice regarding his pitchers health.

Yes they do. Zimmerman, Gonzalez, Jackson and Detwiler are more than competent enough to carry them through the playoffs.

This. Cards lost Wainwright last year all season and that turned out okay... all about getting hot, and every pitcher on this team(with the exception of Lannan when he is officially put back into the rotation) is capable of throwing a gem on any night. The bullpen is also getting their slump out of the way early because they are way too talented to be playing the way they are now(Clippard has been GARBAGE.)

..but whatever, because they're the Nationals they aren't gonna do shiit. Not like they don't have the highest scoring offense in baseball since the ASB WITHOUT Ian Desmond, aka the Nats best offensive player of the first half..

But you don't know that. Nobody does. The Nats could win the WS this year, it's ludicrous to fuk that up by sticking to some arbitrary innings limit.

They very well could win the WS without him. All you need is a 4 man rotation in the playoffs and they are pretty good top to bottom. It's ludicrous to risk the long term career of their best pitcher for one season.
