After Stephen Strasburg was scratched for shoulder stiffness before last night's start against the Braves, Miguel Batista was greeted by some good old hometown boos after fans realized they may have overpaid for their premium tickets to see the phenom. So after the game, he shed some light on how he felt.
"It's OK," said Batista, who pitched five shutout innings, allowing just three, harmless singles. "Imagine if you go to see Miss Universe and you end up having Miss Iowa -- you might get those kind of boos. They had to understand that, as an organization, we have to make sure the kid is fine."
Classic...and I don't think Miss Iowa will be hearing any boos soon.
