The Strasburg Effect:
According to PennLive.com, Harrisburg Senators tickets are selling like hot cakes (up, like 1,000,000 % or something) thanks to Baseball Jesus himself:
The Strasburg buzz sent local ticket sales soaring. Nearly 1,000 Senators tickets were sold during the first hour at the park. That’s more than double what sold last year during that time, box office officials reported. And another 400 sold online within the hour. Only 140 online tickets were sold during the first day of 2009 sales.

Stan Kasten probably wishes he could say the same thing for 2010 Washington Nationals ticket sales? Betcha a dollar post-June-1st sales are up, though...
