    Man, even Mark Prior lasted longer than him. It's too bad.

    Man, I just heard the giant flush of National's money down the drain.

    This actually may not be a bad thing for him. Pitchers usually come back stronger after having Tommy John surgery.

    What's the rehab time for something like this?

    They can come back stronger, or not at all.

    Yeah, probably 2012 sometime I'd guess. Maybe start of the season.

    Re: Strasburg has a torn ligament

    Probably better for the Nationals in the long run. Allow him to come back closer to the time that Harper is ready. It's alot better that it's a ligament issue than a nerve problem. The success with Tommy John surgery has to be up over 95% these days. He will be back, and probably better than ever.
