Stephen Strasburg caused some panic in Washington D.C. last night when he was unexpectedly scratched from his start against the Braves. It turns out the rookie right-hander has shoulder inflammation, and will be given some rest. This obviously left some fans at Nationals Park very unhappy because they paid to see Strasburg, but got Miguel Batista. However, Batista took the anger in stride and even offered up this analogy: "Imagine if you go to see Miss Universe, then you end up having Miss Iowa, you might get those kind of boos." Based on 2009's Miss Universe, Stefania Fernandez, we understand what Batista means.
