19Skins72 Posted August 25, 2010 Share Posted August 25, 2010 Dibble was a good player, as are the other players he references as having toughed it out by playing with injuries, but the problem is he is comparing those good players to a potential superstar that is playing on a bad team. Superstars (even potential ones) play by different rules, particularly on bad teams like the Nationals. This isn't Strasburg's fault, it's simply the way sports work. I also can't fault the Nationals for wanting it this way (and don't fool yourself, they def. want it this way) because it would be idiotic of them to expect him to be a tough guy at the expense of his long term productivity. If this team was in the middle of a pennant race then maybe I'd feel differently. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
