Smith of the Houston Chronicle Asked about Jason Castro’s game count, Bo Porter said he won’t give a hard answer and get locked in to “Stephen Strasburg” situation. #MLB — Brian T. Smith (@ChronAstros) March 21, 2013 #Astros‘ Bo Porter: “You will never get me to lock in on a number figure on anything. That there is the Stephen Strasburg question.” — Brian T. Smith (@ChronAstros) March 21, 2013 As the third base coach for the Washington Nationals, he probably couldn’t have been more removed from the thought process in the shutting down of the Washington phenom.  Certainly in the back seat to Strasburg’s agent Scott Boras.  But nevertheless, those that know Porter can read between the lines that he probably isn’t going to treat his players with kid gloves, no matter their franchise status. - Dave (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball The post Astros manager Bo Porter subtly suggests Strasburg situation mishandled appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
