I am not sure about this, but I think that Strasburg is a Scott Boras client. Someone told me that Boras is orchestrating this. If so, this is about keeping Strasburg healthy enough so Boras can cash in on the next big contract, be it arbitration or free agency.
Strasburg is represented by Scott Boras. Powerful guy, for sure and has definitely supported the shutdown. I think a claim that he's "orchestrating" this thing is simply off the wall.
