Because 9 zillion 23 year old pitchers have thrown 185 innings and didn't immediately die.
What professional athlete gets to where he has gotten and then just doesn't play in the postseason. There are no guarantees on his arm either way.....and there are no guarantees that the Nats ever make it back to the postseason.
It's simply ridiculous that all those stars of the 70's pitched every 4 days and threw 270 innings.
