    Default The Sky is Falling!!

    OMG, Strasburg gave up 6 runs in 4 innings and only K'd 4 batters. I guess drafting isn't exactly all that it's made out to be.

    Demote him

    Actually. Outside of beating up on the Pirates, White Siox and Royals in his first couple of outtings, he's been "good" but not great. His control hasn't been as good or teams aren't biting on his curve like the Pirates were He's hitting the mid to high 90's in pitch count and making it through 6, so he's labouring.

    Kid is still going to be a very good pitcher but he's coming back down to earth a little more now and with teams getting more film and such on him against MLB'ers ...

    What an absolute bust when the kid learns how to pitch at the ML level, he is going to be real fun to watch. He doesn't look too bad getting by on raw ability.
