Swing and a Miss - He Struck Him Out! ...


Stephen Strasburg stands 6' 4'' and weighs in at 220 lbs. His true stature, though, is much greater than that. At the tender age of twenty three years old, he has already greatly impressed those of us who love the game of baseball. His short lived career stats are impressive: 2.54 era, 92 ip, 116 k, 19 bb, 0.98 whip. I believe that these stats are but a taste of what we will come to realize as his career unfolds.

There are several reasons for his incredible strikeout to walks ratio & his substantially better than a strikeout per inning pitched; not to mention the 0.98 whip. His character makeup is one of confidence and yet humble. He loves this game that his maternal grandmother helped him develop. Strasburg has great command of four pitches. His repertoire includes a curveball/slider, a circle-changeup, a two seam fastball, and a four seam fastball. He can throw his fastball 100 miles per hour and his two seamer runs in on righthanded hitters - very nasty.

Stephen Strasburg has shown that he is immune to high pressure situation's. In his Major League debut, '' the most hyped pitching debut the game has ever seen, '' he secured the win allowing 2 earned runs in 7 innings pitched w/ 14 k's & no walks. With Tommy John surgery now behind him, I believe that he will now assert himself as one of the great pitchers over the next ten years. In Stephen Strasburg, we get to watch another potential future HOF pitcher. Swing and a miss - He struck him out! ...

Unti next time, so long everybody ...
