And he's done after 7. To sum it up: un-****ing-believable.
No walks, 4 hits, 2 earned runs on a home-run, and struck out 14 of the 24 batters he faced. Three perfect innings after the home run and struck out 8. Seriously, WAG. Only hit 100mph once, but was 97-99 the entire game. Has a great fastball, a good 2-seamer for the groundballs (hardly got any, though), and an absolutely filthy curve which breaks a mile. His change-up got hit for the homerun, though. Anyway, he's ridiculous.
On another note, Zimmerman and Pudge, WAGs. Pudge such a legend.
EDIT: And that's the game. Gets his win, 5-2 final.

That was a little bit special.
What an utterly awesome debut! This kid measured up to the hype alright. Man, he has the weight of the world on him and he calmly goes out and does that. My new favorite player.
Just hope he stays healthy - I read today that Mark Prior had a similar debut (but with "only" 10 Ks), and we know what happened to him.
If this guy stays sound for his whole career, there could be some records broken.
Strasburg got a no decision. With the President in attendance, no less.
But he still struck out 10, taking his total to 32 in three games, and his ERA is below 2. So you could say he's doing OK!
Would be great if he could make it to the All-Star Game, but I don't see that happening this year. Just a bit too late.
Pelfrey wins his 10th! WAG.
Thoughts on the All-Star rosters?
Amazed that Votto missed out.
Simply awful incident at the Indians/Rangers game today. A fan fell 30 feet from the upper level to the ground below while going after a foul ball. The fan was responsive and able to move all extremities after emergency personnel reached him. As of this post, he is alive and being treated at the hospital. No replays were (thankfully) shown of him falling. The reaction of the players and fans was of shock and disbelieve. Several players kneeled down and started to pray. There was a 16 minute delay and the game resumed, but the atmosphere was surreal as the fans and the players didn't know how to react. Really awful stuff.
Jimenez and Lee should be starting, but Price will probably end up starting because he has more Wins (stupid but it always happens).
I mean, c'mon, Lee missed the first month or so and plays for a team that's 15 games under .500, yet he is 8-3 with 5 CG's and a crazy 89-6 K-BB ratio. Best pitcher on the planet at the moment, no doubt.
oh good votto made the all star game
