Braves 3, Nationals 2: But who cares, really? Bad night gets worse: Davey Johnson revealed during his postgame presser that Stephen Strasburg felt tightness in his forearm.
"Well that was a tough one, but the main thing, I was a little concerned about Strasburg. He always has a tendency to shake his right arm, and him being wild... I talked to Cat and...'have you talked to him?' ...because he doesn't look right to me. ...He was in there with the doctor. He's got a little tightness, I think in his forearm. So they're gonna put him on some medication, then he'll get a report from the doctor. But that was a bad thing in the game. Still throwing good, but his command was way off, so I knew something was wrong. He didn't complain about anything, but he was irritable. ...
Hopefully he's gonna be alright. We'll just have to wait and see."

Oh No. No, no, no.
"I'm not missing my next start, I'll tell you right now."

Or was that quote from August 2010? Rob Dibble must be loving this.
Also, here's to hoping Jayson Werth's ankle is OK. F*ck.
