Morning Photo: Stephen Strasburg

Must be a fun day to be Stephen Strasburg. The probable #1 overall pick in the 2009 MLB draft will begin the process of obliterating the largest contract given in draft history and potentially destroying the system as we know it. That's right, even though Strasburg is just an amateur, he will likely command at least $20 million to sign because he is allegedly that good.

And by the way, Stephen Strasburg is represented by Scott Boras.


What do you think of Strasburg? Will he get a huge contract? How interested are you in Strasburg?

I feel there is a greater chance Strasburg will be a bust than a star.

He'll get a huge contract or he'll hold out indefinitely.

Boras doesn't get a guy like this often. He's going to juice the situation for all he can.

I'm interested in seeing how it plays out. But it's almost impossible for Strasburg to live up to the hype at this point.

I'm sure the Nationals are looking forward to being played by Boras for the next two months...
