Ever since the Washington Nationals signed number one overall pick Stephen Strasburg in August 2009 with a record $15.1 million rookie contract, the hype machine has been on full power. 

Strasburg has been compared to everyone from Randy Johnson to Nolan Ryan, thanks to his blazing 102 MPH fastball and a 7-2 record in the minors with a 1.30 ERA. He has been praised as being the savior of Washington and every MLB fan (including myself) has been anxiously awaiting his debut.

Well, the wait has ended. As a result of this event, I will be providing a in-depth analysis of Strasburg's inning-by-inning performance tonight.

So be sure to refresh your computer between innings for the latest updates starting at 7 P.M. EST, 4 P.M. PST.

Stay tuned.
