Fantasy Roundup: I’m Not Worried About Strasburg

After an average first outing to begin the season (against the Mets) Stephen Strasburg looked to bounce back in Boston. However, the opposite happened and he got lit up for five earned runs in 5.1 innings. He didn’t have command of his secondary pitches for most of the game, and the quality of his secondary pitches was low; the changeup was straight and the curveball was flat...

Strasburg on loss: "I don't think anything went wrong."

And so, Stephen Strasburg summed up his performance in the Nats 6-3 loss to the Mets on Thursday as follows during his post game interview: "I don't think anything went wrong. I feel like the contact they made, it was a lot of very weak contact, and that's just how baseball is sometimes." So we'll just chalk this one up to bad luck. In any case, Strasburg's line ...

Player Profile #18: Stephen Strasburg | SP | WAS

Stephen Strasburg is an exceptional player, no question about it, and I don’t think anyone could reasonably make the argument that he wasn’t worth the number one overall pick in the 2009 Amateur Draft. If the Nationals could have a mulligan on that pick I don’t think they would change a thing.  Strasburg is still as exciting to watch as any pitcher in the game What I...

Report: Nationals open to trading Stephen Strasburg

The Washington Nationals reportedly signed one ace pitcher, but they could be looking to deal another.

Stephen Strasburg on Orioles fans at Nationals Park: "Maybe someday it'll be different."

Somewhere, Peter Angelos is smiling and stacks of Ted Lerner's MASN money. And so, the Orioles beat the Nats 8-2 in 11 innings Monday night in front of what seemed to be an evenly split 35,126 fans until the end, when Nationals Park sounded more like Camden Yards. Lots of competing "Let's go Nats" and "Let's go O's" chants throughout, although Brady Anderson's doppelganger threw...
