He will be the next Mark Prior so anyone who has him should trade him ASAP after getting back from the DL.


Bite your tongue and stick needles in your eyes for saying that 8-o . Can you imagine, people will lose their minds.


People will commit mass suicide... :-o

On a lighter note, I'm wondering where all the drool for Matt Wieters went.

IIRC the Nationals invested more money in Stephen Strasburg in 2009 than they invested in their entire draft this year and that includes signing #1 overall pick Bryce Harper to a record contract for a position player. Because of his immense talent and the $ invested the Nats are ULTRA conservative in their handling of him. They pulled him out of the game last night for something that he has pitched though multiple times in College (assuming the MRI doesn't show anything more than the forearm strain the medical staff is diagnosing).

We should probably hold our Mark Prior comparisons until an MRI, CT-scan, or Xray actually show a significant injury (sorry to all the haters, but having a hard time getting your shoulder loose is not typically considered a significant injury, despite the fact that he was placed on the DL).
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

According to Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, Strasburg only suffered from shoulder inflammation, and has no cuff and labral damage. But the Nationals were not willing to take chances, even if one of their rare sellout crowds booed what happened.
