So much for all those big dreams.
His season is over right? I mean he couldn't sit out a couple of weeks last year then come back and pitch, is he OK to do it now?
Hubris will always bite you in the ass.
The hubris was shutting him down with the wink wink implication that they'll be back next year, so it's cool if they don't win in 2012.
Not every bad outcome is hubris or even a bad decision.
That particular outcome was both, however.
but if they made this bad decision trying to maximize total value from him to the ballclub, how is that hubris?
They made a call. Many people criticized them for it. They stuck with their decision. I just don't think that is necessarily hubris.
Wrong? Likely, but it is also possible that they let him pitch last year and he sucks and gets reinjured and we are in exactly the same place. Sometimes people get injured and their is no good decision.
And no I am not defending the decision, it was likely wrong. I just think folks are far to sure they know what the right decision was and are too willing to cast stones at people who disagree with them.
It's hubris because they had a chance to win the World Series and punted it.
Like so many others, this statement tells me that you didn't pay close attention to Strasburg toward the end of last season. He was starting to smell like 2 day old fish.
