Strasburg and the Washington Nationals can’t catch up in Colorado.
Steven Strasburg has had his ups and downs in his 6 year career with the Washington Nationals. Last year, the DC superstar posted an 11 and 7 (wins and losses) record and was rewarded with a massive contract extension of 7 years, 175 million.
The investment seemed to pay off for the Nationals upper management, who were rewarded with Strasburg’s best start to any season with a 13 win and 0 loss record after his first 17 games started. But Strasburg has hit a rough patch of late and his record over the last 2 and 4 record over his last 6 games.
If that Nationals hope to make a deep post season run, as the fan base in DC expects, Strasburg will need to find his A game before the playoff stretch.
