Strasburg impresses in Rookie Debut.

Steven Strasburg was the number one pick in the 2009 Major League Baseball draft by the Washington Nationals organization. I've been reading about all the hype, the sold out minor league baseball games where he was pitching, and all the myths surrounding the unproven legend; but I remained unconvinced until tonight.

Strasburg pitched in his first Major League Baseball game earlier this evening; and I guarantee you that this young pitcher is nothing but performance, no hype whatsoever. How can You be sure? Some might ask when reading this article, well I'll let the stats from Strasburg's first start tell everyone everything they need to know.

He tossed 94 pitches through 7.0 innings; allowing 4 hits and 2 runs; striking out 14 batters, and leading the Washington Nationals to a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates - resulting in his first every Major League Baseball win. Call me a fan, or call me crazy; but this pitcher can pitch!

The Washington Nationals must be excited; they spent 15 million dollars on an unproven college level pitcher (unheard of in Major League Baseball) - and that pitcher actually performed in his Rookie Debut in front of 40,315 (largest crowd in Washington since Opening Day) excited fans. I cannot believe this is happening in Major League Baseball:

Strasburg Mania!
