Strasburg is Money!

63 of 78 pitches thrown today have been strikes. Wow.

I'll give credit to Nats management for picking absolutely the perfect time to bring him up. Has a highly touted rookie pitcher made his first four starts against four weaker teams (relative to their league) than this year's Pirates, Indians, White Sox, and Royals?* The only thing missing is a start against that offensive juggernaut known as the Orioles.

*By the way, that's a rhetorical question.

Could you imagine? We would have scored -4 runs.

MLB network right now and about ready to set another record... strikeouts after 4 starts.

Because records like most strikeouts after four starts mean anything. Is he going to "set the record" for most strikeouts after 13 starts too? Who has the record for most strikeouts after 23 starts anyway?

Very good pitcher but he gave up nine hits today and is in line for the loss.

I think he is a very good young pitcher but stats like most strike outs in first four starts are silly. Most strikeouts in debut is a worthwhile record, to keep a running tally like folks are is not.

If he stays healthy he could certainly play at a HOF level.

91MPH circle change:eek: Thats just sick!

Yeah, it's the arsenal that got my attention, not the results. The 100mph FB with 6-8 inches of movement, the 81mph curveball that just drops off the table, almost like our beloved former closer G.O., and then the 91mph circle change in between the two? It's just not even fair.

His change up is faster than most guys' fastball.

I have to say I kind of agree with Can of Corn. The hype is a bit much, although at least he's living up to it so far. But this new record of Ks in the first 4 starts of a career is a little silly. I mean who really cares? What kind of arbitrary number is that? And who knew there was a previous record holder?

The only reason we now know there is a record is become someone was looking for yet another reason to cream their pants over Strasburg. We get it, the kid is good. Just let him pitch.

I'm telling ya, this is just more proof that the guy is just plain lucky... he only pitches on days when the other team strikes out a lot. Let's wait and see how he does when he faces a team that's not having a strike-out kind of day...

Me thinks if he was an Oriole there would be plenty of guys on this board keeping track of just this sort of stat. Besides when you strike out more guys in your first 4 starts than Herb Score did back in 1955 then thats saying something.
