Hey, what about the whole "no restrictions" thing with Stephen Strasburg?  Yesterday, as Strasbrug was tearing apart the Miami Marlins on Opening Day, the Washington Nationals' ace looked like he could throw a shutout.  Instead, he was pulled after seven innings of work - and he had thrown just 80 pitches. However, based on radio and television broadcasts, there was no injury concern and the decision to pull Strasburg was not related to any limits.  Manager Davey Johnson simply wanted to go to his one-two punch in the bullpen.  He turned the ball over to Tyler Clippard in the eighth and Rafael Soriano in the ninth.  It worked out.  The Nats done 2-0. However, for anyone watching Strasburg's performance yesterday, it was disappointing to see the young righty yanked after just 80 pitches.  He was throwing one of the best games I can remember him throwing.  No, he didn't have 14 punch outs, but Strasburg was clearly pitching to contact and doing it well.  He mowed down 19-straight batters at one point in the game. But never fear, Nationals fans.  Strasburg is healthy and continues to have no restrictions.
