Only this time around, it had nothing to do with his fastball.

Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington went on Twitter today to reveal that Strasburg had put "something like an Icy-Hot [Patch]" on that part of your body you aren't, uh, supposed to put Icy-Hot Patches on. Or as Zuckerman put it: that "place it shouldn't have been before game."

Giving up four runs in four innings, Strasburg looked a bit out of sorts during the game. And aparently he had a fair excuse. Nationals manager Davey Johnson corroborated the story -- via Washington Post sports writer Adam Kilgore's Twitter.

"An unusual postgame revelation: Davey volunteered that Strasburg got 'hot stuff' in 'the wrong place' and 'I don't know how it got there,'" wrote Kilgore.

Lesson learned: Don't rush to put first-aid products Shaq endorses on your genitals. Especially if you have to go out and pitch a game. There's just no part of this story that sounds comfortable.
