Stephen Strasburg as a Padre? …
As funny as it sounds, that’s something that could happen.
Having coffee in D.C. this morning and stumbled upon a story in the Washington Post about the Nationals/Strasburg on-going drama.
This excerpt was very interesting:
“If the Nationals fail to sign Strasburg, they would also receive a 2010
compensatory pick — “1B,” if you will. But Strasburg, after missing
the Nationals, could be selected by the next team, potentially the San
Diego Padres, who have the second-worst record in baseball right now.
Strasburg was raised in San Diego and attended San Diego State.”
So how about that? The Nationals can’t sign him, he goes back in the draft and the Padres, who are on-pace to finish with the second-worst record in baseball, though the Royals and Indians are threatening, select Strasburg in ’10.
What are your thoughts?
