Sports Junkies: Valdez And The Strasburg Icy Hot Challenge
More From The Sports Junkies

Washington Post’s Nationals beat reporter Adam Kilgore said yesterday skipper Davey Johnson revealed Stephen Strasburg got “hot stuff” in the wrong place before his worst outing of the season, which lead to a 6-1 home loss to the San Diego Padres.
Hot Stuff is a pain relieving ointment similar to Icy Hot and can be rubbed into sore or hurt muscles. Johnson is miffed as to how it got there but Kilgore theorizes the rain may have washed it to an unwanted region of Strasburg’s body.
The Sports Junkies decided to see what happens when that kind of ointment gets into “wrong place” and had their producer, Valdez, rub it on.
