Forgiving Washington

An interesting piece by an Expos fan about finally letting go of that franchise, and cheering for the Nats.

Dr. James Andrews agrees with Washington Nationals on "The Strasburg Shutdown"

In an interview on ESPN Radio, noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews backed the Washington Nationals decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg in this, his first fulll season returning from ligament replacement surgery. Andrews, who has not examined Strasburg, said, "I would certainly take up for the decision. And I don’t know first-hand — there’s probably a lot of intangibles that helped them make that decision. But I don’t think you can criticize that one bit, to be honest with you." Click through to The Washington Post's D.C. Sports Bog for the full story.

Washington Nationals first round pick Lucas Giolito scheduled for Tommy John surgery

Lucas Giolito, the Washington Nationals first round pick (No. 16 overall) in the 2012 draft, will indeed need ligament replacement surgery (Tommy John), as reported by Amanda Comak of The Washington Times. Giolito was examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles on Wednesday and Yocum, the same surgeon who performed the procedure on Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann, confirmed the original diagnosis that the 18-year-old right-hander’s torn ulnar collateral ligament required surgery. Giolito made one appearance for the Gulf Coast Nationals, pitching two innings, but complained of the same pain he experienced as a high school senior, cutting that season off after just a game and a half. Giolito, 6'6", 230, regularly hit 100 as a prep, but now his path as a pro will follow that of Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg and Sammy Solis as high Nats draft picks to undergo the procedure.

Washington Post Writer Thomas Boswell: "Stephen Strasburg shutdown debate masks the Washington Nationals’ true story."

"On Saturday, Washington Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo ran into Stephen Strasburg’s dad, who was in Phoenix to watch the team play the Diamondbacks. Jim Strasburg braced Rizzo with the same question as the rest of the baseball world: What’s the deal with ending my son’s season — protecting his arm even though he feels perfectly healthy — because of some voluntary innings limit that Rizzo has chosen? "'Mr. Strasburg, don’t ask the question if you don’t want to hear the full answer,' Rizzo replied." - Thomas Boswell, Washinton Post.
