Boone is reportedly prepared to engage in a lengthy holdout in hopes of landing a contract that will pay him commensurate with his performance.

Strasburg (7-8) settled in after a shaky start, giving up four runs — three of which were in the first — and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings.
"Giving up three runs early, I could've easily shut it down," Strasburg said.
