After Washington won the WS in 2019 Strasburg became a free agent because he opted out of his contract. to get more money. Washington signed him to a new 7 year $245 million in December of that year. $35 million a year. After they signed him, I called it the most stupid contract signing in the history of all sports. Because of his track record of being injured. Now he is back on the Il after ONE game this year. So, the last 3 years he will have started 8 games total. What a waste of money.
