Unfortunately we'll never know that... at least for a while. Detwiler isn't going to say anything as long as he's with the Nats. The team isn't going to say "Oh yeah, we screwed another thing up." So we're left with Riggleman's statement which we have to take at face value and move on. Oh well.
On a side note : the first issue of the "Strasburg Awesome-Picayune" Spring edition came out this weekend. Expect many more issues to come. Please... PLEASE ignore anything that happens this spring with Strasburg. There are only three official positions for Nats fans allowed here:
- He's pitched well. I am a tiny tiny bit more optimistic. Let's see what he does in the minors.
- He pitched poorly. I am tiny tiny bit less optimistic. Let's see what he does in the minors.
- He got injured. I hate this team
