(ed.note - "I wrote about the Stephen Strasburg/All-Star talk yesterday and posted a POLL for the Federal Baseball readers to weign in on the subject. Here are two other opinions on the topic that were posted yesterday, by Jeff Sullivan of Lookout Landing and SB Nation.com/MLB and Dave Nichols from the Nats News Network.")

"But here's the thing - nowhere does it say that the honor can only be awarded to those with a sufficiently broad body of work. That's the way it always happens, of course, but just because that's how it happens doesn't mean that's how it has to happen. And Major League Baseball isn't often confronted with a phenomenon that quite measures up to Stephen Strasburg, and everything that comes along with him."

• NATIONALS NEWS NETWORK - Dave Nichols: "Should Stephen Strasburg Make the All-Star Team?"

"It would be great theatre to see Strasburg face the best hitters in the American League. And not wanting to place undue pressure on him (yeah, right), but it's a pretty good bet we'll see Strasburg in future games. I just think it's premature to name him to the team after just seven starts. And he's actually said as much when asked about it."
