Can You Feel The Hype?

Strasmas is less than an hour away, and if you're in DC, either listening to radio, watching television, or simply sitting at a bus stop, you're surely hearing about the best thing to ever happen to the Nationals.

Leading off SportsCenter? Not Game 3 of the NBA Finals. It's Strasburg.

Host Dari Nowkhah began with the following:

It is finally time for some excitement for DC Sports.

While I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult, the mere suggestion that a Pirates-Nationals matchup in early June could generate enough hype to overtake a classic NBA Finals matchup between the Lakers and Celtics would have been laughed at by anyone and their mother several months ago.

Predictions? Yea, they've been thrown around.

On Around The Horn, Woody Paige jokingly suggested that Strasburg was going to throw a perfect game.

Tim Kurkjian, live from Nationals Park for Baseball Tonight, thought 90 pitches and no more than seven innings pitched was reasonable.

And me? I'll get specific: 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 5 K. I'm no Nostradamus, but I'll be absolutely shocked if Strasburg doesn't perform exactly in line with my expectations.

Leave your predictions for Strasburg's debut in the comments section. Closest guess gets a shoutout from yours truly on twitter (a huge deal, I know).
