Waiting for Strasburg
When Adam Kilgore and I walked down to the field at Nats Park Tuesday afternoon, Ted Lerner was sitting in the stands. That's unusual. There were probably 40 or 50 television reporters, still photographers, talking heads, print reporters and assorted other media folks waiting around near the dugouts. That's unusual too. The normal number would be in the high single digits.
There were also what looked like six or seven TV stations setting up sets for live shots. And that's unusual too.
"Damn, is this the World Series?" Willie Harris said, when he emerged from the Nats' dugout tunnel and saw the 24 or so folks huddled around the entrance.
They were waiting for Strasburg. Then a media relations type told us that he was still two-and-a-half hours away from emerging.
