Strasburg has torn ligament, Tommy John surgery likely (sports.espn.go.com)

He's going to get a second opinion, but it's looking like he'll need the Tommy John surgery, which means 12-18 months recovery time.

Even with the Nationals all but keeping him in bubble wrap and only letting him out to pitch on strict pitch counts, and inning counts, he's an aggressive thrower. Now he's got to take at least a season off. What happens now for him?

If he's getting Tommy John surgery, it means that not only is he done for 2011, but it means he might not even be ready to start 2012.

If you're a Nats fan, you're banging your head against the table. All the protection that the organization gave him and he's going to wind up being Mark Prior/Kerry Wood anyway. What a bummer.

Hopefully, this year wasn't his only shot at an All-Star appearance.

This calls into question the "innings limit" that people advocate. This guy was protected in every way imaginable, and his arm still blows out. It makes me wonder if the issue is more mechanical than anything else.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

Man, that's a good amount of egg on the faces of all the people (looking at you, SI and Bob Costas) who were ready to put Strasburg with the all-time greats...after 1 game.

The Tommy John Surgery isn't necessarily a death bow to a pitcher's career.

It looks like he was going to need surgery sooner or later. So maybe this might be the right place, right time situation.

If wins are your criteria, then he can't get in until Bert Blyleven does. Mussina just doens't stand out compared to his contemporaries (no Cy Youngs, 4 All-Star games). Not just Clemens (7 Cy Youngs, 1 MVP, and 10 All-Star games)
