"We all saw it. We all saw what Stephen Strasburg did. His wasn't only perhaps the most incredible debut in Major League history; it was one of the most impressive and dominant pitching performances I've ever seen. I wouldn't put it at number one on the list, but the fact that it even merits consideration says all that needs to be said about what Strasburg did to the poor, underprepared Pittsburgh Pirates."

• What Strasburg Means, Redux | - Alex Remington - FanGraphs Baseball

"Stephen Strasburg isn’t overvalued or undervalued: his 100 mile-an-hour-heat is exactly as blistering as it appears to the naked eye, and his knee-buckling hook is just as devastating as Lastings Milledge thinks it is."
