Cubs fan mocks Dusty Baker’s excuse for Stephen Strasburg illness

Stephen Strasburg

At least one Chicago Cubs fan is not buying the reason Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker gave as a possible cause of Stephen Strasburg’s illness.

A day after Baker blamed mold season as a possible cause of the illness that nearly kept Strasburg from pitching Game 4, at least one Cubs fan came prepared for such a danger.

Baker had this coming, as did the Nationals. The organization’s shaky explanation of Strasburg’s illness on Tuesday looked even sillier when, 24 hours later, the ace pitcher did indeed turn out healthy enough to start. The Nationals simply could have said that Strasburg was sick and he would pitch if he could. Instead, they immediately ruled him out, went back and forth, made excuses, and ended up looking sheepish when he pitched anyway.
