Bring your 'K' posters to Businessman's Strasmas



Wednesday is the first Businessman's Strasmas of the season, and it promises to be a scorcher, with predicted 99 degree temperatures and an over/under of 15,999.5 jokes linking "Stephen Strasburg" and "high heat." In fact, Capital Weather Gang is running a poll on which will be higher, the speed of Strasburg's first pitch or the temperature at gametime.

To get you ready, our corporate buddies at Express have printed these full-page 'K' posters, for you to wave about madly at Nats Park. Assuming Stephen Strasburg records one strikeout. Or you could photocopy it, I guess. Or pick up two dozen copies of Express. Or go with two dozen friends. (Via @khudak11)

There was some question about whether 'K' signs are allowed at Nats Park, and I'm not sure that Friday night entirely cleared things up. There were plenty of images of some guys in the outfield hanging their signs proudly, and yet there were online reports of other signs being taken down.



Speaking of Strasburg and strikeouts, check out the stats below. Seems there's a pretty good chance that after Wednesday, Strasburg will be second on the Nats in strikeouts. After four games.

If 37th and K met, it'd be in the middle of the Potomac.

37th and Prospect St., on the otherhand, actually intersect.

Walter Johnson was 'The Big Train'. I prefer Strasburg as 'The Fast train' becuase of his velocity and how almost all his pitches are right down the track. Also the speed at with he pitches a game (shouldn't be long before he hurls 9 inning under 2 hour games) also adds to moniker 'The Fast Train'.

Maybe you could tell those guys at the fence it's okay to add "k"'s for the other pitchers too. Just skip a space or something if they really feel the need.
