A beautiful collision of talent. Lee Jenkins writes about Stephen Strasburg. Well worth a read, as we have the rotation on our minds this morning.

Lanny, Cheese, Sloth, Marty. Ahhhhhhh! BabyBoBOlsen must be unloaded after his decent April/May/Early June. Bring up Bally then.

"* Washington named Jordan Zimmermann as its fifth starter. The Nats will not need a fifth starter until April 19, and Zimmermann will be kept in the minors -- probably with Class AAA Syracuse -- until then.

[snip]

* Washington optioned pitcher Collin Balester, the other candidate for the rotation, to Class AAA Syracuse."

... just trying to catch up after a busy morning elsewhere. One question I have about the legalities and commitments concerning the above two statements, is this: is it assured that come April 19, JZimm will be brought up to DC? Leaving injury out of the equation, if Collin is in the process of doing infinitely better than Jordan in Stracuse, could the team recall him on the 19th instead?

BoBOlsen faces the Astros, who rank 30th out of the 30 teams in BA. Little Scotty's chance to shine? Naaaaah. Stros have won 7 in a row and then there's that Tejada thing, the one with the big, bulging eyes when he sees an 87 mph "fastball."

Thanks for the link to the amazing piece on Srasburg.

Mr. Lerner -- pay the young man. Pay him handsomely.

If the sides are far apart, offer to make up the difference with performance bonuses.

Great piece on Strasberg. The internet is a wonderful thing. I learned that Mike Rizzo is now considered the GM, and that SDSU students have a average IQ of 98, or at least the sample that enjoys baseball?

I like the analysis, posted a few days ago, that says drafting a pitcher, no matter how talented, is way too iffy. The expected value of a top position player has been much higher over the years.
