Strasburg's myth-making MLB ad

Stephen Strasburg is so averse to the Strasburg hype machine that he told reporters on Wednesday he might have declined an All-Star berth if it had been offered. Stan Kasten is so averse to the Strasburg hype machine that he claims his team has 25 faces of the franchise, each of whom share in the acclaim.

And Major League Baseball? They came out with this new ad last weekend that links Strasburg with a few pitchers you might have heard of. It's not a hype-averse ad. But it's awesome, anyhow. Sorry, hype haters.

Dood...He's 2-2.

Dude, wins and losses are attributable to teams, not pitchers. His first loss was 1-0. But I'm sure he just didn't have the cajones to inspire the Nats hitters to hit better... yeah, that's what he's missing.

yeah... it's fun, he's in town. I wonder if the team will ever be close to where Ovechkin and the Capitals are now

"This is beyond baseball"

You mean, interesting? (Yeah, I know, that was a cheap shot.)

He is something to watch, just what baseball needs. Look ma, no steroids! I hope.
