"Jim Callis of Baseball America says let's not put too much pressure on the rookie, but he does give his prediction for what might happen with Strasburg this year and next season."

• NATIONALS NEWS NETWORK - Dave Nichols - "Stephen Strasburg--The Pitcher Beyond the Hype"

"There's been a lot written and said about Stephen Strasburg, making his major league debut tonight for the Washington Nationals against the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7:05 pm, before a national audience, MLB Network, ESPN Baseball Tonight, and media from across the country. I've had the opportunity to watch him pitch several times now, and I can give a little impression about his arsenal and demeanor."
