Stephen Strasburg watch: Six strong vs. Marlins
The "Strasburg-160" returns with an update on the Nats' ace and his march toward his unknown innings limit.
As you are surely aware, the first-place Nationals have intimated that they'd be conservative with ace Stephen Strasburg in this, his first year back from Tommy John surgery. To that end, there's likely an innings limit in place. That limit is widely rumored to be 160, but CBSSports.com Insider Danny Knobler speculates that 170 might be the number.
Possible ominous query from the Strasburg-160 should manager Davey Johnson decide to go rogue and exceed IP protocols: "Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?"
