Why not stick him in the bullpen the first month of the season and continue to ease him in? That aside, why not come September start him every 6th or 7th day and let him go 5 innings?

Logically it doesn't make sense to shut a guy down for a period of time and then start him back up again especially in the playoffs, but every pitcher is different and some can just pick a ball up and pitch as if nothing happened, others will struggle so we'll see how Strasburg reacts in the playoffs - personally I think he'll be fine
