Nice ;-D

I am a big fan of Grant Green and suggest you go invest in some of his cards. Picked up a Green/Lars Anderson dual auto #'d 250 for $19 on eBay the other day. But you don't turn down a potential ace and that's what Strasburg appears to be. If he doesn't go #1 it's because the Nats are cheap.

Interesting article. ;-D

For whatever reason, I'm much more inclined to read these if they go to the Leftovers page. Good read! I've been following Ackley's college career and really like him. Hopefully KC can get Strasburg though! :-L

Can't wait to see Strasburg pitch at SDSU this year. I'll be sure to post some scouting reports on him. :-D

How does Strasburg compare to Aaron Crow who will be back in the draft (right?)? Is Crow still likely to go top 10?

Everything I have seen has him going to Baltimore at #5.

Only way I see Strausburg falling below #1 is if the Nationals go cheap.
