Livan Hernandez questions Strasburg

"How does your family feel after the big day," the dude with the microphone said on Wednesday.

"You know, they were pretty excited for me," Stephen Strasburg told Livan Hernandez, without so much as a smile to acknowledge that the question came from a man with a large head, a Cuban accent and a full baseball uniform. "You know, my dad, [it was] probably the first time I saw him break into tears a little bit, so it was pretty cool to see.

"It's not easy, huh?" Livo then joked, while holding the microphone. See the video here, via @MissChatter.

And hey, since I had one of my best traffic days in ages on Wednesday while writing nothing but Strasburg, might as well keep the momentum going.

(On, and an even better stat than that, via Darren Rovell:

AMAZING STAT: Majestic says that Strasburg could be No. 1 best selling Nationals jersey in their history by the end of June.

Anyhow, here is Livo with his mic stand, the Strasburg mini-bats for sale in the Nats team stores ($18, approximately), the Indians' marketing Strasburg's first road start and the Nats' scoreboard's inability to deal with 14ks, via a blog whose name I can't print.

That K thing is too funny. Can't they set it up to put a slash across 4 of them to make it 5. That should fit 15. Baby steps...

If the scoreboard is the most difficult thing to fix for this team going forward, the Nationals will truly be on the right path :-)
