Quote of the day
"I understand I'm not going to have lights-out stuff every time. I'm human." -- Washington rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg, after a 5-0 loss in Atlanta
At the end of May, the Nationals sported a 26-26 record, and with Stephen Strasburg about to arrive, the team had reason to be optimistic. But with June about to end, the team is now 11 games under .500, Strasburg is only 2-2 (in spite of pitching much better than that record suggests), and the “Natinals” seem to have re-emerged. The team has only scored one run in Strasburg’s last three games, so it really doesn’t matter how well he’s pitched. Welcome to the bigs.
I guess LeBron-mania has now completely consumed the NBA news. Yesterday, I saw two “confirmed” reports that LBJ was pretty settled on signing with both the Bulls and the Heat. Cleveland fans have to be on the verge of apoplexy about now.
