Stephen Strasburg fanned 14 last night in a performance best described as "freaking phenomenal." It was only the lowly Pirates, but he made them look silly; guys were diving out of the box on curveballs that broke for strikes and barely waving at 101 mph fastballs that looked like darts Strasburg was casually flicking past them. You can watch every punch out here.

  • I was really hoping Strasburg's debut would be less than stellar, even though i knew that was probably not going to happen. Even though I want the Nats to succeed and all, he seems like a really cocky and arrogant kid. Scott Boras also advises him, which shows that he won't sign a contract extension with Washington. If he performs like he should, the Nats will be paying him $25MM by his third arbitration hearing. Ugh.
