Twenty-two years ago today, Stephen Strasburg was born in San Diego, California, destined to become the single greatest thing to ever happen to baseball since the invention of chewing tobacco.â†µ
He makes his second start since the All-Star break tomorrow in Cincinnati and is slated to throw around 100 pitches, which is exactly 19 more pitches than it would take for him to throw an 81 pitch, 27 strikeout perfect game, which is what we're all predicting for him to do. Right?
So Happy Birthday, Stephen Strasburg. And to everyone else of legal age - drink heavily. Both in his honor, and to numb the fact that you worship a man probably much, much younger than you. I know I will!
