Stephen Strasburg threw a gem in his MLB debut for the Washington Nationals. He struck out 14 batters in 7 innings.
Strasburg will be the best pitcher in the MLB for a long time.
Ever since his college days at San Diego State, Stephen Strasburg has been advertised to be the #1 pick in the MLB Draft whenever he came out.
He has a nasty fastball that topped over 100 miles per hour and made half of Pirates' batters miss. This is his favorite pitch to get players out. This will be one of the best fastballs in the MLB.
Then, we get to his changeup. I think this is one of the best changeups I have ever seen. The pitch was 91 miles per hour average. How could anyone expect to hit that kind of changeup?
Now the curveball that Strasburg throws is ridiculous. It has so much movement on it to make most Pirates' player miss when he threw it. Overall, this pitch is just nasty.
I have never seen a pitcher with three dominant pitches like Stephen Strasburg does.
Strasburg's next start will be Sunday in Cleveland. The Indians have been horrible this season, so I expect Stephen Strasburg to take advantage of that.
Stephen Strasburg will be the best pitcher in the MLB for the next decade. Who knows, he might be in Cooperstown when his MLB career is over.
Believe the Stephen Strasburg hype, he will be a dominant pitcher in the MLB for many years.
