When Strasburg pitches and continues to grow as a pitcher, “it should be exciting to everybody else instead of when he’s getting shutting down,” Nationals Manager Davey Johnson said. “He’s a remarkable young arm.”

UPDATE, 7:45 p.m.: The tarp is on the field and it’s raining hard. No idea how long this will last, but it can’t be good for Strasburg.

UPDATE, 8:29 p.m.: The Nationals announce an 8:35 p.m. re-start time. It appears Strasburg is going to re-take the mound.

As always, talk about the game here.
