OT - Steven Strasburg is a Beast

In his widely anticipated major league debut, Steven Strasburg's line was 7.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 14 K, 1 HR, 2.57 ERA.  He threw 94 pitches and struck out every Pirate at least once.  In his first outing he set a Nationals record for strikeouts.  His fastball was breaking 100, his change was clocked at 91 and he's got every pitch.  He put 10 straight Bucs down after giving up a 2 out, 2 run HR in the 4th.  4-2 Nats at the end of 7.

Kid is the real deal. 

[Edit: Nats win 5-2.  Strasburg earns the curly W, the silver wig and two shaving cream pies.]
