On What Other Authority He Did It
That, especially with the Red Sox’ victory over the Rays last night, Strasburg’s start probably really does represent the most interesting game this evening.

Strasburg has done this through his first two starts: 8.0 IP, 27.6% K, 0.0% BB, 33.3% GB, 2.14 SIERA, 2.26 xFIP, 59 xFIP-.
