Since they've wrapped up a playoff spot barring the largest collapse in MLB history, I have an idea. How about they pitch him once a week, since there are four weeks of the season left, and limit his innings to 5 per outing, or 80 pitches, whichever comes first. Then they could pitch him in one game per postseason series, making his IP for the year under 180. It would represent the best of both worlds, and gives them a real good shot at winning the title while not working Strasburg at a full throttle year even including the postseason. Is this even possible? Do pitchers usually do poorly with starts spaced out like that?
