No playoffs for him.

Clearly they don't have the best interest of my fantasy team in mind...

If I was a Nationals season ticket holder, I would be pissed.

The Nationals need to be punished for this decision by missing the postseaon or being eliminated in the wild-card play-in game, which is pretty much the same thing.

As they currently have a 6.5 game lead in their division and have the best record in baseball, that's pretty unlikely.

I am actively rooting against them in the playoffs.

I can understand the anger at the decision. But no.

I would be done forever. Silly me, I thought winning the World Series was the goal of the game. If they really wanted to do this they should have went with a 6 man rotation, stuttered his starts, or just plain worked him in the pen for awhile. This is crazy. If I was Strasburg , I would demand a trade NOW.

He said all the hype around it was starting to weigh on Strasburg's mind; wasn't getting enough sleep, wasn't mentally into his starts...

For what its worth

Hype around what? Him being done. Wouldn't that be the opposite of hype?

It was the number one baseball story for a couple months. Hearing EVERYWHERE about how you and your fanbase are getting royally screwed by management. Think that counts as hype.
