Strasburg: Here We Go.

Strasburg: Here We Go.

Really? Really? Can we already concede to the fact that young hurler Stephen Strasburg is a baseball prodigy, a organization shifter, a seat-seller, and a media-favorite? Well we should.
Baseball, and sports in general, is about entertaining the people. You can count on Strasburg doing just that.
With Strasburg consistently hitting that 97MPH and above column, one can only imagine the emotional status of the Nationals.
Expectations are higher than ever in DC, and within a year (at the least) you can count on Strasburg and Bryce Harper to be leading this club to the playoffs.
Although Strasburg may not be facing any adequate competition until he goes against the Braves
on July 30th, one can only assume that his continued success will progress into something special (Atleast that's what the Washington Nationals are thinking).
Yesterday's start was a magical one from the beginning. The fans in the first sell-out crowd in Nationals history, the 14 strikeouts, the undeniable curve ball, the 100 MPH fastball, and the (surprising) Nationals offense that actually put up runs for Strasburg to work with.
Whenever a future Hall-of-Famer like Curt Schilling rambles on to the media about you being a: "future ace", or a future Hall-of-Famer, you take it.  You don't like it in particular, but you still take it.  "Once he steps onto the field for the first time, he might be the best pitcher in all of baseball".  Way to go Curt.
Most people around the sporting world can agree on one thing: the Washington Nationals are
set.
