I know there are some hardcore baseball fans on this forum, and quite a few forumites in the Baltimore area. Curious to get your take on how the Orioles are handling him.
Not sure how the Orioles are handling him... However I think the Nationals are being ridiculous. This could have been handled so much better by simply skipping a start of his every 2 months... Shutting down your best pitcher when your team is on the brink of the playoffs and fans are finally interested, even though he is not injured and there is absolutely no evidence that the additional innings will damage his surgically repaired arm is just absurd and a slap in the face to the other 25 guys in the dugout that are going out there and busting ass for 162 games. Rizzo is a fool.
