Around the Horn Baseball is having a debate on whether or not the Nationals should let Stephen Strasburg start the season in Washington or whether they should keep him in the minors. Joe Tetreault from TetraultVision argues for the Nats including the hurler in their opening day line up, and Slanch from The Slanch Report argues against it.
I was surprised as both sides have really strong arguments. I expected going into it to just see the usual debate about rushing young pitchers, but both sides have valid points. There is also a debate going on in the comments section, feel free to join in!
The debate is part of The Great Bloguin Baseball Debates, a series The Nats Blog will be joining later this winter:
Follow us as each week as our best writers from around the Bloguin Network take aim at each other and square off on anything and everything baseball from "who was better, Mays or Mantle" to "Should MLB have a salary cap?"
Pick a side and agree or disagree. Take part in the debate by posting a comment giving your own opinion. There are no holds barred and nothing is held back in the "The Great Bloguin Baseball Debate."
