Strasburg is the TRUTH!

When I talk to my kids about the first time I saw Strasburg pitch in the major leagues I will tell them only this... In the second inning of the game Bob Costas had this to say, "That's just not fair. How is someone supposed to hit that curveball when they have to be prepared for a 100 mph fastball?"

If you have the MLB network, and you enjoy baseball. Take the opportunity to watch this kid. He is unbelievable.

I'm watching it and he looks pretty incredible. I hope he doesn't follow the same path as Kerry Wood or Mark Prior.

He isn't as good as everyone is saying he is, they are just blowing his cock for the fans to get publicity and viewers, as well as sell tickets...I've pitched my whole life and I could go head to head with him if I was still playing

you're joking right? I played baseball all my life as well, and it would take a seriously ignorant person to believe that making it to the majors and striking out 7 through 5 in their first career start isn't impressive. It sounds a lot like sour grapes too.

Wrong, he's that good. You should see the pros and scouts marvel at this guy. I used to see him pitch all the time.

Seriously?

Ive played my whole life including with and against guys in the pro's. Its one thing to get drafted, its a lot different to actually be pitching in the pro's, especially at his age.

Although i think he is overrated too, (Joba did the same thing when he first came up and he sizzled out some) he should be a good pitcher once he matures.

10+ pitches at 98 10+ pitches at 99 3 at 100 and 1 at 101.... and a curve ball that makes Barry Zito jealous.... 2 different fastballs and a great 91 mph change up.

Post up your real name and google will do the rest...the world is littered with "coulda woulda shoulda" types...

A close friend made it to the bigs...until Tommy John surgery and only made it back for a half season...

The amount of talent and desire that it takes to go to the show is not found in 99.99999999999999% of us

im not posting up my name because most of all of what i did is no longer on the inet because perfect game doesnt keep records on their servers because of how many kids come through the program, but you can be a dick and try to call me out and say im lying but if you knew me well enough you would know i dont bullshit, but i dont care if you believe me because i know what i did....I know what it takes to play in the bigs, and i probably wouldnt of made it, but 6 foot 7 and low 90's isnt a normal player, but a lot of things didnt go my way in my career and i let it go, my best friend Colby Rasmus starts for the cardinals and grew up with me so i know a little bit about pro baseball

it was only documented me hitting 90+ in one tournament, the world wood bat championship in Jupiter FL, where i pitched against Rick porchello as he is my age, and a few other big leaguers, i didnt hit 90's until my senior year because i was so tall and didnt finish growing until about that age, i think my dad has the top velocity's in the tourney somewhere, but only people who paid for the membership to PG crosschecker could view their stuff, porchello hit 98 that day and scott boris signed him in the dugout, i unfortunately was a late bloomer and I got a lot of looks after that tourney but only got one serious offer from david jennings(google david jennings orioles) he is a scout for the orioles and got me a scholarship to the best juco in the state and i played for a year and walked away for personal reasons
