Here's how sdsuaztec4 introduced himself to the Federal Baseball.com readers after I had sent out one simple email to the SBN bloggers asking if anyone knew someone who could provide scouting reports on the projected No. 1 overall pick Stephen Strasburg:
"Whats up DC! First of all I am a Padres fan and if you guys think you are getting Stephen Strasburg in June you better watch out for big bad Scott Boras.
