The Blogosphere Is Distraught Over Stephen Strasburg's Injured Wing

The news that Stephen Strasburg may need Tommy John surgery has sent a shock wave through Washington sports media. The reactions have ranged from cynical, to pessimistic, to morose. Obviously, we will all take a few minutes before we collect ourselves and opine on what this means for the Nationals going forward. At least in this our darkest hour, we can focus our rage on our true enemy: Rob Dibble.

Here is how the blogosphere is reacting on the darkest of days:
