That's cool. Even if it's one guy that get's people to watch baseball more or again Im good with.
I just get annoyed with the hype. I mean in the past few days Strasburg has gotten more press than basically any player in the league all year and all he's done so far is pitch one game. Albeit a pretty impressive showing no doubt. The thing is Ubaldo Jiminez is having a historic season so far and has gotten press, but outside of people here in Colorado people still don't realize how good this guy is. He throws just as hard as Strasburg and on the average probably harder and has just as dirty other pitches. Why not the hype for him?
