2. Feinstein posits the Nationals shouldn’t have shut down Strasburg because it made them sign Rafael Soriano. You need an entire Boy Scout troop to diagnose the knots in that logic. He is saying the Nationals never would have signed Soriano if Drew Storen never blew a save in Game 5, and the Nationals would have won the NLDS if Storen never blew the save, and that the Nationals would have unquestionably won the NLDS if Strasburg had pitched.
Soriano coughed up some leads, but 42 saves ruined the season? Tyler Clippard feeling bad for his friend in public is why the Nationals scored 3.7 runs per game under Rick Eckstein? It’s empty psychology.
3. Feinstein says the Nationals’ offseason moves were an attempt to improve the team and win a World Series to justify the Strasburg shutdown. I read them as, oh, I don’t know, an attempt to improve and win a World Series. Fault Mike Rizzo if you want for the execution of the shutdown or the very idea of it and what it meant to their 2012 chances. But I’ve constantly been struck by at how at peace with the decision he is. He largely shrugged last year at the withering criticism. Stubbornness can at times be a fault of Rizzo’s, but in terms of not allowing the Strasburg uproar to shape his decision-making, stubbornness served him well.
