Stephen Strasburg Shutdown Day is quickly approaching. Mike Rizzo, GM of the Washington Nationals has drawn a line in the sand at 160 innings pitched for Strasburg this season. Many people in the baseball world have applauded and jeered this decision. Many Washington fans are concerned as this is the first time since 1933 a Washington team will make the playoffs. The Atlanta Braves have to be excited being only 5 games back. Sitting a dominant pitcher like Strasburg will give them a golden opportunity to make up some ground.
