Tall Tales: Stephen Strasburg Edition

Postby StlSluggers » Tue Mar 24, 2009 10:57 am

I heard he has a 100 mph fastball... that moves!
I heard he has a low-90s slider... with command!
I heard he once struck out over 20 guys... in one game!



I heard he once knocked down an oak tree with a slider... because it was sitting on the fastball!
I heard he's over 6'5" tall!
I heard he once hit three home runs in a single game... while pitching!
I heard he wants to be your buddy, guy!

check out the minor league forum. There is a huge thread on Strassy, the Myth.

I heard he pitches from second base because of his catcher's swollen hand.

I heard that, too! And then they renamed it Stephen Strasburg surgery, and banned anyone else from ever having the procedure, since their mortal bodies couldn't handle the talent.
