There's an old joke that goes like this.

Man (to woman): Say, if I gave you a million bucks, would you sleep with me?
Woman: Sure, why not?
Man: Well, all I have is $100. Would you still sleep with me?
Woman: What do you think I am, a whore?
Man: We've already established that. Now we're just haggling over the price.

The Strasburg debate is the same deal.

Rizzo: Should I ride Strasburg hard and put him away wet, no matter how long it takes, even up to WS game 7 on Nov 1st, if it's going to ruin his career?
Know-it-all pundits: Oh God, no. Pull him out if it starts to look bad.
Rizzo: Okay, I'll shut him down in September.
Pundits: Shut him down? Who ever said you should do that?
Rizzo: You just did. Now we're trying to figure out when.

Stephen A. Smiths talks because he likes to hear himself talk. What he has to say is irrelevant. As long as he is talking, he is happy.

Fortunately for us, there is nothing which requires us to listen to him.
