If you were a Major League Baseball General Manager who could form your own team from today's MLB roster who would you have on the team.

When Noah asks me one day, ‘What happened? What was it like when I was born?’ I could have answered ‘Well, Stephen Strasburg hung me a breaking ball that day, son, and I slammed it into the right-field corner.’ But I think it’s going to go so much further in that I’m the one who cut his umbilical cord. And long after they tell me that I’m not good enough to play professional baseball anymore, I’ll be a father. And I’ll be a husband. So that was a reason on the front end that I wanted to be there for my wife and for my son. Daniel Murphy, second basemen for the New York Mets.

White Sox select LHP Carlos Rodon, NC State Rodon came into the spring as not just the consensus top prospect in the draft, but as arguably the best college pitching prospect since Stephen Strasburg was drafted in 2009. An inconsistent spring has hurt his stock but only just a bit, obviously. At his best, Rodon sits in the mid-90s with his fastball and has a devastating mid-to-high-80s slider. The slider is the best individual pitch in the entire draft. Rodon has big, workhorse frame (listed at 6-foot-3 and 235 lbs.) but isn't the greatest athlete, so his delivery can fall out of whack and his command is great. The fastball/slider combination gives him ace potential, but Rodon is not the slam dunk frontline guy he was believed to be as recently as four months ago. Time will tell!

With Matt Harvey, Stephen Strasburg, Jarad Parker, Matt Moore, and now Jose Fernandez all having Tommy John surgery before their 24th Birthdays, organizations are going to have to start figuring out why this issue has become so bad.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Washington Nationals are facing off this week. If you could have one of the following choices, which would you choose? A) Bryce Harper AND Stephen Strasburg or B) Mike Trout alone Let's hear it.
Masahiro Tanaka and Stephen Strasburg are the only pitchers in the last 100 years with 8+K in each of their first 3 MLB …
Just got back from church, Andrew Haynes. And watched Bryce Harper turn the wrong way on a line drive hit by Shelby Miller, turning an out into a double. This allowed Peter Bourjos, running on the play with two outs, to score easily. Stephen Strasburg, who threw the pitch, stared grimly out into left field for a few seconds before returning to the mound. Cards lead 2-0, despite 9 K's through five for Strasburg. Only you and Jeffrey Moore can appreciate the ironic depths of my frustration here.
Nationals vs. Marlins: Stephen Strasburg is roughed up on long night for Washington
Williams says Sandy Leon had a good game yesterday & did well with Stephen Strasburg in his last start so starting today over Jose Lobaton.
Washington Nationals' third baseman Ryan Zimmerman felt soreness in his shoulder on an errant throw in the fourth inning tonight and he left the game two innings later. After the loss to Atlanta, Nats' manager Matt Williams said Zimmerman was dealing with shoulder soreness and would see a doctor. Washington Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman is headed to a doctor after experiencing right shoulder soreness which led to his being lifted from tonight's game in Nationals Park.With two down in the fourth and Justin Upton on second after singling and stealing a base, Atlanta Braves' shortstop Andrelton Simmons hit a sharp grounder to third where Zimmerman fielded the ball on his backhand and made an over-the-top throw to first that sailed slowly over Nats' first baseman Adam LaRoche's head and went all the to wall in foul territory. A run scored on the E:5, and another scored as the inning was extended for Nationals' starter Stephen Strasburg. "He went to his backhand tonight, threw that ball across the infield and felt ...
WASHINGTON — Miami Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee did his best to look on the bright side Thursday.His club had just lost 7-1 to Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals, capping a three-game sweep in which the Marlins were outscored 22-8."The good thing," McGehee pointed out, "is ... we're sitting here at 5-5. It's not like we're 1-9."Yes, for a team that lost an NL-high 100 games last season, a .500 record sure does sound pretty good."We all wish we had a little bit better showing here," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "But we know we can play against these guys."Still, bothered by the shadows creeping across the diamond during a game that began at the unusual time of 4:05 p.m., Marlins hitters wound up tying a franchise record by striking out 17 times in all, 12 against Strasburg."It was kind of tough to see out there," said Miami's Derek Dietrich, who went 0 for 3 with one strikeout.Strasburg went 6 2-3 innings on a day Washington really needed to rest its relievers, and Jayson Werth a ...
Bryce Harper is slumping. Stephen Strasburg couldn't get out of the fifth inning. Ryan Zimmerman couldn't finish the game because of a sore shoulder.
Braves lineup for tonight's game vs the Nats with Stephen Strasburg on the mound. Ryan Doumit is getting his first start as a Brave behind the plate tonight. Glad to see Doumit in the lineup for the Braves but I would like to see Evan Gattis in the lineup to see if he could do what he did last year against Strasburg: hitting a 95+MPH fastball that was head-high out of the park. 1. Jason Heyward RF 2. BJ Upton CF 3. Freddie Freeman 1B 4. Chris Johnson 3B 5. Justin Upton LF 6. Dan Uggla 2B 7. Ryan Doumit C 8. Andrelton Simmons SS 9. Julio Teheran P
Likes and dislikes for today's later games: You wouldn't think the Dan Uggla-Stephen Strasburg matchup would be a good one for the Braves' whiff-prone 2B. But quite surprisingly, Uggla is 11-for-27 with 2 HR and 8 RBI v. the Nats' ace. And not so surprisingly, he has struck out 10 times. The lefties -- Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward -- also have very solid numbers v. Strasburg. Bryce Harper is off to a poor start, with two strikeouts in each of his first four games. But he is 5 for 10 v. Julio Teheran. Leadoff man Denard Span is 7 for 15. I'm always leery of SPs v. the potent Cardinals offense, but Francisco Liriano was lights-out against them last year -- 2 runs in 24 IP. Pedro Alvarez had a big game last night and sets up well vs. Joe Kelly. Be careful with David Price against Texas, as his career ERA is 5+ against them -- albeit much of that damage was done in Arlington, not under the Tropicana Field dome. Alex Rios is 11 for 27, including 6 XBHs v. Price. Meanwhile, Nick Martinez will make his firs ...
