Mike Rizzo Told The Junkies This Morning The Team Believes Roark Gives Them The Best Chance To Start
That’ll get you all caught up. Stras was dying of the flu. He thought Roark would give the team the best chance to win. Rizzo thought Roark would give the team the best chance to win. And now…Stras is taking the hill.
Here’s a theory: this is a Scott Boras work. He didn’t like how the Nats handled this entire thing. Everyone from the top down. So Boras told Stras to be the hero now, take the ball, and if he is too sick to pitch a good game, that’s on the Nats for putting everyone in this situation to begin with. I could see Boras being furious with how the organization made Stras look today, and now Stras is going to appease everyone and pitch, even if he still feels it’s not the best choice for the club.
Welp, see ya at 4:08, should be fun!
PS: What if Roark ends up starting? Definitely still possible.
