    Assuming Strasburg isn't a bust. It's Strasburg.

    But Steven has done nothing and Timmy has already accomplished a Cy Young. So who knows?

    Timmy.....Strasburg will be in Dr. Andrews office sooner rather than later...I predict a Wood-esque career

    Okay people we need to relax a little with the Strasburg hype! I am very happy for the Washington Nationals that they finally have a player they can build a franchise around and hopefully start turning things around, however.....

    Do you think maybe we should let the kid throw a pitch in the MLB before we induct him into the Hall of Fame and rename the Cy Young award????

    tim lincecum already has a cy young, very easily could win another this year. Strasburg has shown nothing that doesn't lead me to fear elbow and arm problems. I'll go with lincecum

    Timmy is more than likely going to win his second Cy Young in his 2nd full year in the big's, and Strausburg is pitching for the Nationals....everyone thought Dave Price was going to be the savior of the Rays, he has been decent but hasn't lived up to his hype and i don't think Strausburg will either
    Want me to make you a painting similar to this vvvvvv?? Message me and we can work something out

    Maybe he should throw a pitch in the minor leagues first and face semi- major league ready players before we have him in the race for the CY Young award. Oh and there are some other pitchers I would consider a little more deserving of consideration for the front runners of the award going into next season. See: Johan Santana, Josh Johnson, Chris Carpenter, Matt Cain, Clayton Kershaw, Cliff Lee. God the kid hasn't even faced anywhere near a major league ready hitter and already we're penciling him in for a season where he is competing with Lincecum for the Cy Young award? Meaning around a 18-4 year with around a 2.30 ERA and 200+ Ks in around 190 innings pitched in his first year?

    Tim Lincecum is already the best pitch in baseball and has a Cy Young under his belt (and could be on his way to number 2). Stephen Strasburg is yet to a throw a baseball in professional sports. So, I'll take Tim for now.

    If Strasburg is to be better than Timmy, he will have to win multiple Cy Youngs, average 18 W's and 250 K's a season for the next decade.

    All I have to say is, one has a cy young, and one never threw a pitch in the majors...
