Despite the latest rumors, Stephen Strasburg CANNOT walk on water.
But, just about all of the other stuff that has been written about him since his entrance into the Major Leagues is absolutely true.
This season has been one giant coming-out party for the Washington Nationals frosh pitcher, and he appears at this point to be worth every single penny of the record-setting contract he signed last season.
He was virtually unhittable in his appearances in the minor leagues before FINALLY being called up early in June to step make his professional debut. And if not for a complete absence of run support, he could very well be sitting undefeated today (but alas, that’s the price you have to pay for being on one of the worst teams in baseball).
His supporters, such as Babe Ruthless, feel that his performance warrants All-Star recognition. But others, like Loyal Homer, feel that he is not yet worthy of such high praise (at least, not this year).
Which leads us to today’s debate topic: Should Stephen Strasburg be an All-Star?
