A couple of Nationals fans, Bud and Lou, are discussing the NL East--leading team and its 24-year-old ace, Stephen Strasburg.
LOU: Explain this to me, Bud. The Nats have the best record in the league, and they're a shoo-in for the first postseason appearance by a Washington franchise since 1933, right?
LOU: But when they get to the playoffs, they're not going to let Strasburg pitch, even though he's been one of the best in the game all year?
BUD: Right again.
BUD: Why what?
LOU: Why won't they let Strasburg pitch?
BUD: Because of his elbow.
LOU: His elbow is injured?
