Versus -- a channel better known for its coverage of hockey, the Tour de France, NASCAR and (in its previous incarnation as OLN) fishing -- will televise Stephen Strasburg's final minor league start on Thursday. The AAA Syracuse Chiefs play in Buffalo on Thursday. The current plan is for Strasburg to be called up to the big leagues (presumably on a permanent basis) soon after the start in Buffalo. So he won't be shuffling off to Buffalo but shuffling out of Buffalo and onto the next stage of his baseball career.
Versus should be available on most cable and satellite channel line-ups. I'm not sure if I'll be able to catch the game. If everything goes according to plan, there will be many chances to see Strasburg pitch on TV the rest of this summer, for the Nats. I saw the MASN coverage of Strasburg's previous start. Moderately interesting but it's still minor league baseball. Better to see it live than on TV, in my opinion.
