Stephen Strasburg joins Twitter, keeps it stupid

By Dan Steinberg

Ok, Stephen Strasburg didn't technically join Twitter this month. His official account -- which Nats PR personnel verified on Thursday -- has been active since September.

But it would seem that Strasburg is only taking to the medium this week. After nine tweets in six months, the kid has tossed off five in the past two days, including the above gem, which will hopefully join Bryce Harper's Oppo Boppo, HItterish and Wake and Rake as future Nats t-shirts.

And, on top of the recent Alex Ovechkin news, this has D.C.'s Twitter scene in very fine shape indeed. Cooley, Landry, Davies, John Wall, Blatche, Leonsis, Ovechkin, Carlzner, Harper, Storen, Strasburg...the stars have all come out. Here is my list of the D.C. sports peoples I would most like to see sign up next.

5. Albert Haynesworth
4. Jayson Werth
3. Vinny Cerrato
2. Alex Semin
1. Daniel Snyder

For a second I read this as "Strasburg is only TALKING to the medium this week."

I didn't know his injuries were that bad.

Haynesworth already has an account.
