Stephen Strasburg was pulled from last nights game around 8:15 EST. His injury was reported as a “muscular issue” with his back about an hour later around 9:15pm.
Yet, at 9:56pm, ESPN was reporting that Stephen Strasburg hurt his shoulder.
All can be forgiven I suppose, but around 10:45pm, the Nationals confirmed that Strasburg had strained his oblique. Yet, around 11:25pm, ESPN was still sticking with the shoulder thing (please forgive quality of photo).
I understand that situations are sometimes fluid and facts can sometimes be contradictory. But this one seems pretty straight forward. Any yahoo with a twitter account could have learned the real story.
Good work ESPN.
