VIERA, Fla. — Well, Stephen Strasburg’s first bullpen session is complete. According to people far more dedicated than me, he threw 37 pitches over nine minutes. Derek Norris was his catcher. A phalanx of fans, reporters, photographers and team officials packed the bullpen area.
And after all this, I think I can say with 100 percent certainty that Stephen Strasburg will win 300 games in the major leagues.
(Editor’s note: There may have been a hint of sarcasm in the previous statement.)
