Nice shot of Tony Gwynn, Sr in the stands for the debut.

Masterful today without topping 95. In complete control of all of his pitches, including his masterful change and curve. I hope there's more of this come.

Me too, I love watching this guy pitch more than anyone else when he's on.

Time to cut bait.

Trade him for Tyler Clippard.

They need to resolve this Strasburg situation. You can't have a starter going 3  and 3.1 innings on consecutive starts.  That puts too much stress on the bullpen.

From Zuckerman:

PITCHING LOWLIGHT: There’s plenty of debate right now from those trying to figure out what’s wrong with Strasburg, whether he’s hurt or whether he doesn’t have the mental makeup to pitch through adversity. Truthfully, his struggles probably boil down to this: Poor mechanics and poor command. Strasburg has admitted he’s having trouble with his alignment as he releases the ball, his plant foot veering too far to the right. That leads to command issues, especially with his fastball. And that fastball (which doesn’t move very much) is eminently hittable right now. The end result isn’t pretty: Strasburg now owns a 6.00 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 50 hits allowed in 36 innings this season. He also has reached the seventh inning only once in seven starts so far. All of that is a real concern.

"Embarrassed. I let the team down. It sucks." -- Stephen Strasburg

At least he's owning it.

Figure it out dude.

That's because Strasburg's been a good pitcher and hasn't given the crybabies on this board reason to excessively rag on him

An appreciation thread is for positive comments.  I am pretty sure there has been more than 9 pages of negative comments about him over 5 years in other threads.  There's 60 pages in the "not an ace thread" alone.

If this continues, we have settled the debate over which number 1 overall pick we should sign to a long-term extension.

Easily. Harper is looking like he could turn into something really special (for the Yankees  :whistle:).

Strasburg is going to be great in his walk year and Rizzo is going to give him a ton of cash. Harper will get a ton of cash from the Yankees no matter what we offer him. at least we have him for a couple more years.

They need to call up Strasburg's coaches from his first year in college, and figure out how they motivated him to turn around his college career.

Tony Gwynn was the primary motivational force. He also was dealing with Strasburg's work ethic not his game management skills
