Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
When do you think he will play in the major leagues. I like Stephen Strasburg and I hope he isn't a bust for 17 million dollars a season. I hope he plays in the majors next season and make the Nationals into the Tampa Rays. What do you think.
We will be up next season for sure I would think. Even if he is horrible in spring training I can't see the Nats leaving him in the minors, he would just be to large of a revenue stream to pass up.
I don't think you will ever see him (or any player for that matter) turn a team like the Nats into the Rays. It took Crawford, Kazmir, Price, Longoria, Upton and so on to turn around the Rays. All of them were top prospects, Kazmir-15th overall pick, Price was a 1st overall pick, Longoria was a 3rd overall pick, Upton was a 2nd overall pick, tack on Matt Garza (25th overall pick) and Jeff Niemann (4th overall pick). baseball is more of a team game than any other sport. No one or two players can turn a team around. Just look at how many top picks it took the Rays and how many years and this doesn't even include top picks that they didn't benefit from: delmon Young (1st overall pick), Josh Hamilton (1st overall pick) and Rocco Balldeli (6th overall pick)
