Allow me to introduce you to Stephen Strasburg, Major League pitcher for the Washington Nationals. Stephen was born in San Diego, California on July 20th, 1988 to Kathleen Swett and Jim Strasburg.

Wouldn’t that be amazing if I spent this entire blog post just copying Strasburg’s Wikipedia and making up idyllic details about his life? Alright, maybe “amazing” is the wrong word, but it would certainly amuse the hell out of me. But that’s not what we’re here for is it? We’re here for hot baseball news and hot baseball opinions. I have both of those things!
