How many of you are going to watch Stephen Strasburg's first game?

Was planning on watching Stephen Strasburg's major league debut tonight in lieu of watching the Yankee game. I'll have the Bombers in the picture-in-picture thingy, so I can check out anything exciting that happens.

So, I was just wondering if any of our readers were going to do the same thing, catching this moment of MLB history.(Then again, I remember thinking I was watching history when I saw Hideki Irabu's Yankee debut!)

What are you going to watch tonight? Strasburg? Yankees? Mets? The NBA finals? The season finale of "Glee"? Tell us about it!

I will be watching the 1st couple of innings of Strasberg, I will also PIP Yankees, and DVR it

The question is of the Young hyped players playing tonight who will we be talking about 10 years from now
Strasburg?
Mike Stanton--Marlins?
Justin Heyward--Braves?

I suggest one other one
How about some guy named Phil Hughes? He may be the biggest star that is playing tonight.

I watched our future star...Phil Hughes. Then I watched Glee afterwards and caught the highlights for Strasburg on ESPN. Yankees always come first with me ...

Go Yankees 2010 !!!

I saw Strasburg's first two innings. He looked a little shaky with his control at first, but settled down when he realized that the Pirates were actually intimidated by a 21-year-old kid in his first big-league inning ever.

It's one thing to lose to a good pitcher with some good hitters backing him up (especially Ryan Zimmerman), it's another thing to be intimidated by a rookie. This is the team of Honus Wagner, Paul and Lloyd Waner, Ralph Kiner, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Dave Parker, Bill Madlock and (at the start of his career, anyway) Barry Bonds? The Pirates ought to be ashamed of themselves.

As for the way the Yankees have been pounding the Orioles lately, those 1971 and 1979 World Series between the O's and the Pirates seem like a lot longer ago than they really are.

Everybody's talking 'bout that Fox show? Funny, but it's not rock and roll, it's "Glee." It's a good thing Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Marilyn McCoo, Steve Perry, Bonnie Tyler and Christina Aguilera are still alive, but Freddie Mercury must be turning over in his grave.

I watched the Strasburg start. The Yankees are the only team I live and die by but I'm a baseball fan first and it was very exciting to see such fervor for the sport in Washington last night. Seeing the stadium on its feet for so many 2-strike counts made it feel like a playoff game. I'm still buzzing this morning!

And considering the game finished in a Westian 2 hours and 19 minutes I had plenty of time to see the Yankees pour on the runs and Gaudin give away some of that sweet, sweet run differential. But a win is a win!
