Fantasy Spin: If Strasburg is a free agent in your league you may want to reevaluate your competition. He is a must own in all leagues and will be an instant impact by mid June, baring an implosion equal to or greater then a nuclear bomb. Strasburg’s stay in Central New York is sure to be short lived; not even the bright lights of New York could harness this kid.
Thanks dssguy very interesting read
New player notes Fri, May 7
Strasburg has allowed just one hit over six scoreless innings in his Triple-A debut.
Advice: Strasburg threw 65 pitches, 45 for strikes, for the Washington Nationals' affiliate in Syracuse against the Gwinnett Braves on Friday night. He struck out six and walked one in facing 20 batters. He also drove in two runs - one with a first-pitch single and the other on a sacrifice - for the Chiefs, who led 3-0 when he departed.
Hello Pinstripe Pride718. You seem very knowledgable on the subject of Stephen Strasberg. Given that you are in New York it would be great if you could get to Syracuse to give us a more indepth scouting report. Are you able to make it there?
