As an ex-baseball player, I have to say I vehemently, yet respectfully, disagree with your assessment sir. Although, I can't comment on your pitching skills because I've never seen you on the bump.
Strasburg is extremely talented, and there are many respected members of the baseball media who are in the HOF who are amazed at the kid's stuff.
I do agree with the notion that you can't crown him based on one start. He's got serious potential, a good work ethic, and he appears to have his head screwed on correctly.
