Reading Material: (Links Courtesy MLBTraderumors.com's Nate Boyle's post entitled, "Stephen Strasburg Rumors: Sunday"):

• The Biz of Baseball - Maury Brown - "With Strasburg, It May Be the Years, More Than Money, That is the Focus".

"Tick, tick, tick… by midnight on Monday, the Washington Nationals will have either gotten San Diego State pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg under contract, or not."

• Baseball - Newsday - Ken Davidoff - "Sunday reading: Umpires, David Wright and Stephen Strasburg".

"My hunch is that the two sides will find common ground. But that's all it is: A hunch. Understandably, both sides are very carefully protecting the figure to which they'll actually agree."
