Some might consider it a thinly veiled insult to the Pittsburgh Pirates' organization that the Nationals decided to wait until today to bring up Stephen Strasburg. Some might say that the Nationals went out of their way to make his first Major League start seem a lot like his last AAA start, at least in terms of the offensive competition. Others may claim it's all coincidence.
So the question is, what's going to happen tonight for Strasburg? Will he dazzle? Will he fizzle? Pollsters everywhere want to know!
