Nationals Select Strasburg With Top Pick in MLB Draft

So the Nationals took Stephen Strasburg to start the MLB Draft last night.

Big whoop.

I'm so tired of hearing about and seeing Stephen Strasburg.

The guy has yet to pitch an ounce of Major League ball, and already he’s being heralded as one of the greatest pitchers of our time by seemingly every baseball blogger, analyst and columnist in the country.

Anyone remember Mark Prior? Todd Van Poppel? Brien Taylor? ... Not for saving a franchise or any post season heroics, I'll bet.

Until he actually does something worthwhile, he’s just your average draft pick, folks.
