he's supposed to be a catcher but since it takes a while for catchers to learn the position, they're gonna try to make him an OF. i think they're jumping the gun with him on that.

Damn let the kid have a chance first. From the way they are talking they might as well just give him the cy young.
Remember Kerry Wood in his 5th start ever struck out 20 and then had some good years and fizzled out. Mark Prior was the next greatest and then injuries derailed him. It's way too early to predict what Strasburg is gonna do.
i know, and even though it was the pirates, i wasn't expecting 14 strike outs on 94 pitches in his first game. I'm actually getting interested in baseball again because of strasburg.
