Greetings and salutations and I hope y'all are having a good day wherever you may be. Thought I'd put up a thread for all things Strasmas 7 or anything else people want to discuss. It's time to change the mojo a bit. The kid has one win in his four home starts so far and has probably pitched well enough to win at least three of them. Matt Cain's a real tough matchup for him because Cain could pitch all day if the Nats don't get to Cain early. I'll be changing my mojo today with the Ovechkin shirt over the Natstown or Clipp and Save shirts. Basically, I'd like Strasburg to channel his inner Ovie and get more mean and nasty. Get some smelling salts or something to wake him up so that the doesn't have the first inning command issues. Pitch inside and knock some dudes down so that hey don't tap those dinkers the other way when they can't hit him.
Lastly, I'd like to say how proud I am of our team and our superstars especially after witnessing the Festival of Ego that was LeBron James last night. Zimmerman, Dunn, Willingham, and Strasburg are all likable guys who are humble and go about playing the game the right way. We may lose one of them as soon as the trading deadline and it may be tough to keep any of them beyond their current contracts (and Zim's expires after 2013), but it will be hard for me to wish any of them less than the best should they leave because they have given their all, and I believe they will always treat our franchise with dignity and care more about the name on the front than the name of the back. As a city that has the Nats stars and Ovie, we are blessed to have relatively good dudes to root for. Hopefully, some of that will rub off on Wall.
Anyways, want to talk about Strasburg? Roll call for Strasmus? Riff on any other subjects bebop style? Here's a good place to do that.
