The Nats' Ace won't be helping them in October

Standing 1st in the NL East and on their way to a postseason run, the Washington Nationals have decided to rest their 24 year-old ace, Stephen Strasburg. While many criticize the move, the Nats remain committed to preserving Strasburg's arm for the future.
