Hate to admit it, but we stumbled upon a replay of Stephen Strasburg's major league debut on MASN Wednesday night, and we couldn't switch back to Game 1 of the World Series on FOX. (Memo to MASN: if you put Strasburg's debut on tape delay every night from now until Opening Day 2011, we'll watch every single night.)
Here we are, now 4+ months removed from that night, and as we're watching -- riveted -- the question creeps in: what if Stephen Strasburg is never as good again as he was that astonishing night, June 9, 2010?
And with that thought, Strasburg just struck out Adam LaRoche to end the 7th with his 14th, and final, strikeout of the night. Time to switch back over to the World Series.
