    David Schoenfield

    David Schoenfield

    It's been a much quieter year for Stephen Strasburg in his first season following The Shutdown, although not one without news and not one without questions. While the Nationals have been a colossal dud, Strasburg has pitched at a level similar to ...

  14. Strasburg's fastball doesn't rack up K's

    David Schoenfield

    Stephen Strasburg starts tonight for the Washington Nationals, and he's having a good season despite the 3-6 record: He has a 2.50 ERA, .208 batting average allowed and .591 OPS allowed. He's 15th in the majors in lowest batting average allowed and 1...
