There is no truth to the rumor that we are changing our site to We Love Strasburg, I promise. Still, the news is coming fast and furious surrounding the Nationals pitching prospect and his first start next week.
There’s some good news for any non-DC readers or folks who may be on the road yet still want to get a glimpse of the future star’s first start. Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal posted the news in a tweet this morning that MLB Network, a cable channel available to most, will be broadcasting June 8th’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates to a nationwide audience. MLB is also bringing out an A-game crew of Bob Costas, Jim Kaat and John Smoltz to call the game. As my friends at Sports Grid noted, the presence of Costas is a sure sign that this isn’t just any regular debut.
