Thoughts on Stephen Strasburg

What do you all think about the hype around this guy? Is he gonna last or be able to handle the pressure?

He has, and will.

Let's hope he isn't Mark Prior v2.

Maybe he'll pull a Dwight Gooden in his career. Heh

So far, he's been good. I think he'll be fine. Then again, Kerry Wood was gonna be great too....

The Nationals have him on an inning count this season and seem to be thinking long term, I don't think he'll go the way of a Mark Prior. What really impresses me is this kid has better command than 90% of the league.

Disgusting K machine as of now. Will it last once batters see him more? Who knows.

MLB.com K/9 rankings

#1 Kershaw 10.26
#2 Weaver 10.17
#3 Lincecum 10.11

*Strasburg 12.87

cliff lee as you might have heard has the best strikeout to walk ratio, possibly the best command in baseball.

lee's last outing, he threw 78% strikes.

strasburg's last outing, he threw 78.5% strikes.

He's a big guy, and everyone says big pitchers last longer. Like CC and Johnson.

But Wood was 6'5, so who knows.
