Washington National’s highly hyped pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, made his major league debut last night and flat-out dominated. Albeit a game against the Pittsburg Pirates (arguably a minor league team), Strasburg hit 100mph on the radar gun many times, struck out 14 batters, allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and didn’t walk a single batter. And those 14 strikeouts were 14 ugly strikeouts. Both in his motion and the movement on his pitches this guy reminded me a lot of Pedro Martinez — just a much taller version. If this guy is handled right and stays healthy, he’s got the potential to be the best pitcher in the league.
