But considering all the hype, I'll definitely be shopping him around this offseason, just to see what I can get.
Prior came straight out, and he had only 3 seasons where he started more then 20 games, and 1 of those seasons he only started 21. Now I've not heard much about Strasburg's mechanics, so if anybody wants to link to a video or article it would be appreciated.
Does anybody know how many innings he's thrown this year? What about last year?
Prior did not come straight out, he was drafted in 2001 and made his debut in 2002. Strasburg's mechanics are the only red flag he has.
He pitched 97.1 last season and is at 102 currently this season after pitching today.
