Anybody else watching him pitch? I can't help but get the feeling that this kid is going to be something very special.

@jazayerli (http://twitter.com/jazayerli) According to baseball-reference.com, no P has ever struck out 14+ batters on so few pitches. Javier Vazquez threw 96 pitches on 4/9/03. less than 20 seconds ago (http://twitter.com/jazayerli/status/15745160527) via TweetDeck (http://www.tweetdeck.com/)

His stuff is ridiculous. I fully expect him to dominate out of the gate. I think he'll hit a rough patch eventually... I'm not sure I can say that guys will adjust to his stuff with a straight face. But I'm sure there will be some adjustments as he matures.

He is seriously unbelievable. 14 Ks in 7 innings in his first start. Unreal.

He's facing the Pirates. It'll be more impressive when he does something like this against a Major League team.

Meh. 2.57 ERA. Didn't finish what he started. Pretty sure he didn't hit a bomb or steal a base either. And that popcorn ain't gonna sell itself, kid.

They signed this kid last year and he's already in the big leagues? Holy shit. And then he goes and does this. Then they get Bryce Harper. FML and FU Royals

Yes it does sell itself. It's popcorn! Popcorn always sells.

That doesn't even make sense.

We fucked ourselves for not having the #1 pick in the right year again

I got home from work just in time to catch his last inning. Very nasty stuff.

Looking at the stat line and actually watching him pitch are two completely different things. He was utterly dominant. He made the batters look plain silly multiple times.

And, yes, it is/was televised on MLB Network.

I don't have MLB Network, but I'm watching on MASN (O's/Nats network) since I'm local and all.

He was on a pitch count, he dominated except for that 1 home run. He got into big trouble and almost got out of it.

He pitched a HELL of a game.

I dont really care who he is facing in the majors, striking out 14 guys in 7 innings, is insane, hell doing that anytime in your career is nuts let alone your first ever start.

Shaving cream pie-in-the-face for Strasburg, and they put some kind of weird wig on him, too.

This isn't him, but here's the Silver Elvis wig.
