Strasburg: The Only Good Thing to Come Out of Washington DC

I know it is one game, but the pitching the Washington wunderkind put up against Philly last night was a sight to behold. I came of age in the era of Ryan, Carlton, and Clemens, and I've always loved the utter dominance a power pitcher can bring to the game. With this first outing Strasburg takes a step in that direction. More interesting, though, is his wicked curve ball. How a right hander can stay on that pitch after taking a high hard one inside at 98mph the previous pitch is impossible.

I know it is only one game, but for the first time in a long time, the hype coming out of Washington DC is as advertised.
