The hype, it burns!

You know I actually feel a little sorry for Stephen Strasburg. He’s got to live up to hype of Superbowlian proportion. Imagine if he allows three runs in the first inning — the media will be calling for his head. I would be surprised if ESPN, which if I’m not mistaken has a three-hour pregame show, has not come up with Academy Awards style music to lead in and out of the commercials.
At any rate, once this all dies down, between Strasburg, yesterday’s #1 draft pick Bryce Harper, and a few good trades, the Nats should be a good team for the foreseeable future.
