“I saw him when . . .” Actually, the Stephen Strasburg I saw pitch last night for the Syracuse Chiefs was quite human–he gave up two runs, and five hits in a 52 pitch, 5 inning outing. But he did ring up a couple of 98 mph fast balls and got one of his five strikeouts on a wicked changeup that the Toledo batter missed by about five feet.
Supposedly, his next start (Saturday at ABS) will be his last before the majors. Too bad we can’t keep him for longer–announced attendance last night was at 13,000+ Never seen so many folks at a Chiefs game.
