The National phenom?

Posted: June 8, 2010 in MLB, Nationals

By now, you’ve heard that Nationals #1 pick from last year, Stephen Strasburg, will start tonight against the Pirates.  That’s not important.  What is important is that the hype/buzz has been building since May 31st.

Stank-0 went looking for tix but they were going for a buck days ago.  Nationals Park is sold out and the subway is in disarray as a result.  When Stank-0 got off work, his subway was packed and it was only 5:15!  Then Stank-0 saw the red shirts and knew that it was about Strasburg’s start tonight.

ESPN Baseball Tonight is doing a special at Nationals Park right now.  Tony Gwynn, Hall of Famer, is effusing about Strasburg.

Stank-0 is a lil worried about Strasburg. Will he live up to the hype/buzz? Will he be overcome by it?  DC, you may have a new sports king, until John Wall gets drafted (hint, hint).
