Glad I'm not a prospector

Although you can't really prospect the #1 pick....

Incredible.

Can't wait to see what Simmons has to say about this. Be wrote a whole column before the draft that basically called this shot.

From Wiki:

Strasburg made his professional debut on October 16 starting for the Desert Dogs at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. He faced 11 Scottsdale Scorpions hitters in 3 1/2 innings of work, throwing 50 pitches (32 for strikes) and giving up two singles, while walking one batter and striking out two, earning the win in his club's 7–4 victory.[14] However, in his second start on October 22, he gave up eight earned runs and seven hits, including three homers (one a grand slam), in 2 2/3 innings, earning the loss and bringing his record to 1-1 with a 10.50 ERA
