Strasburg #1 Pick for Nationals







via. HipHopUpdate.

This is the guy who was absurd in college, throwing 195 strikeouts in 109 innings pitched. He was expected to go to the nationals, but ESPN is saying they're gonna have a hard time actually coughing up the money he'll want to sign him. $50 Million dollars is the number being said just to sign... Some of his stats:

"Considered one of the most talented prospects in the event's 45-year history, the right-hander features a blazing fastball that's been clocked at 102 mph -- and some nasty breaking stuff, too. He went 13-1 with a 1.32 ERA this season for San Diego State, leading the Aztecs to their first postseason berth since 1991."
