Mike Stanton of the Florida Marlins is debuting today as well. He has a chance to be a Ryan Howard type. Should be a good day for baseball. woooooooooooo!

He's starting on one of my fantasy teams too.



I predict:

6 IP, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K...and the WIN.

Got my tickets in hand and I'm ready to go. I'm pretty psyched for today, should be amazing watching his first game. And it'll be nice seeing a sellout crowd at Nats Park as well.

I could care less about him or the Nats and I hope he does well for the most part.

But a little small evil part of me hopes he gets shelled. I don't know why.

Re: The Official Stephen Strasburg MLB Debut Thread

I can't wait to head out to the ballpark, I have seats in section 133. It's going to be crazy seeing the stadium 100% packed and mostly full of Nationals fans. The last time the park was filled when I was there was the Philly game and of course we all know how many of them were Phillies fans, though there was a good turnout on June 4th.

It'd be awesome to see Teddy win, especially on Strasburg's debut, that has been the rumor for a long time now, that he would win on his debut, so hopefully it happens!

Going to get a lot of camera footage tonight!

Re: The Official Stephen Strasburg MLB Debut Thread

Funny thing, I bought them the day they said he would debut June 8th. I think it was like the 30th or 31st of May.

There was a lot to choose from at the time, but like 35min later everything was gone.

Re: The Official Stephen Strasburg MLB Debut Thread

Funny thing happened to me the other day. So the guy that promised me tickets called me Monday and said the deal fell through and he had tickets for Wednesday's game instead. Obvi, I was upset.

So today I'm stepping on the Metro with an Express (newspaper) in hand around 12:45 and noticed the Nats were selling standing only tickets (2,000 to be exact) at 1 PM. I was like, shit, I'm only three stops away, I can get off at Navy Yard. When I got there, there was hardly no line to speak of, and in about 30 minutes I had two tickets.

Pretty pumped!!

Nice man glad you got them, surprised there was no line, I guess people didn't pay attention.
