For a few hours this morning, Stephen Strasburg was the top story in sports. The Nationals finally won something, Scott Boras lost in his quest for $25 or $50 million, and a dollop of optimism was injected into the nation’s capital overnight. With a bevy of young arms in the minors – led by Jordan Zimmermann and shortly, Strasburg – and a batting lineup that’s quietly in the top 10 in average and OBP (and top 15 in OPS), it’s probably not a stretch to say that the summer of 2011 could bring relevant baseball to the DC area for the first time since the Orioles reached the postseason as a wild card team in 1996. The only negative in all of this? To hear Scott Boras attempt to spin his way out of this loss tomorrow. [Washington Post, SI]
