According to espn.com the Washington Nationals team is dealing with mold that is having some members of the staff feeling sick. Manager Dusty Baker further went on to say this about the health concern of his players.
“Didn’t work out for Stras for his bullpen day, and we’re all creatures of habit, and plus, we’ve got full confidence in Tanner,and Stras, it would have been better, because he’s feeling under the weather, like a lot of my team is. So this day actually comes as a plus for our team.”
Does no Strasburg mean the Chicago Cubs will punch their ticket to a third straight NLCS? Let us know below.
