Lyrics

What in the name of Dusty Baker is a flexor mass strain? Who had that in their Strasburg injury pool? My pal Nick LaGrasta helped me sum up the Orchid's latest "setback."

There's a bit of bad news in DC today
(Strasburg's out again)
His elbow just popped. He's out indefinitely.
(Strasburg's out again)
There's a trainer that's out on the high mound top
(Strasburg's out again)
There's a feeling of dread and it just won't stop
(Strasburg's out again)

We have seen this before. It hasn't ended well.
Tommy John surgery and a long DL spell
Stras is 15 and 4. Joe Ross just ain't the same
I keep telling myself it's just a flexor strain

Flexor strain... supposedly flexor strain

just like the mustang sally jingle, this one benefits so much from knowing what the refrain is going to be as soon as it starts up. fantastic jingle, Steve. i also don't know who Joe Ross is.

Nice work Steve. I think flexor strain is right after firing glutes in the sports med dictionary

Very nice! I have never heard of a flexor strain... I have also never heard of Joe Ross. I'm guessing neither are good news for the Nats.

I love the "bit of bad news" line. I've been repeating "flexor mass strain, non ligament. flexor mass strain, non ligament..." but deep down I think we all know where we're headed....
