NATS INSIDER - Mark Zuckerman - "Nats to Stephen: Be our stopper"

"Fortunately, Stephen Strasburg is on the mound for tomorrow's series finale against the Indians. Unfortunately, he's being asked to stop a losing streak in only his second career start."

MLB.com's Bill Ladson - "Strasburg impresses Hall of Famer Eckersley" | nationals.com: News

"'Obviously, he has great stuff and -- one at a time -- you could say he has the best gas, great hook, good changeup, but he has the command,' Eckersley said. 'He threw 94 pitches and had 14 strikeouts? How do you do that?'"

MASNsports.com - Ben Goessling and Mike Rizzo - "Behind the scenes of Strasburg's development with the GM"

BG: Did you base the Strasburg plan on how other young pitchers had come up? How did you come up with it, and when?

Mike Rizzo: It was kind of a hybrid developmental plan. As you know, I've done this for quite a long time. I've never done it with as high a profile guy as this. Of course, I don't think anybody's done it with as high profile a guy as this guy. I had history to go back on, and I had the way I wanted to do it, which has been successful in the past...

Washington Post - Nationals Journal - Adam Kilgore - "Stephen Strasburg's next step"

"Strasburg entered the majors with monumental expectations, and he promptly tore the ceiling off of his potential with his unforgettable, 14-strikeout debut. The Indians sold more than 8,000 tickets in three days following the announcement that Strasburg would pitch at Progressive Field on Sunday."
