Mark Lerner gets Strasburg Therapy

By Dan Steinberg

Strasburg Therapy.


We all get a little down in life now and then. Some people respond by running distance races, or making pickles, or drinking whiskey. Other people watch replays of Stephen Strasburg's first home start. Like Mark Lerner, for example.

"It shows all 14 strikeouts!" Lerner told NBC Washington's Lindsay Czarniak recently, while showing off the highlights on his iPad. "It's great. So if I need a quick fix, this is what I'll do. I'll put on the highlights of Stephen's June 8th game. I've watched it probably 50 times if I've watched it once. For two bucks I put it on the iPad. I took the link off MLB.com. I listen to the play-by-play call or whatever, [and] I'm very happy....

"When I'm sitting at my desk at home or on a plane or whatever, I'm down about something or I'm nervous about signing a free agent, we're going back and forth about whether we'ree gonna get him or not, you konw, I'll just put this on. It gets me all pumped up. And it's fun."

"Strasburg Therapy," Czarniak suggested.

"Absolutely," Lerner agreed. "There is hope. And hopefully I'll have some Harrper Therapy too this year or maybe next year, and we'll see what happens."

This deserves a bigger look... of YouTube sports highlight therapy. When I need a moment of 'personal rallying', I find the clip of Drew Nicholas hitting the Terps buzzer beater in the 2003 tourney over George Mason. Gotta imagine something like this is common for lotsa people.

I like to re-run LaVar's career ending hit on Troy the Cowboy.
