  5. 11 months later, Strasburg still has "it"

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:38 AM EDT

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. — In his first minor-league rehab appearance since undergoing Tommy John surgery last September, Stephen Strasburg didn’t wait long to make a statement.

    US Presswire file photo The Nationals try to salvage a series split today at Coors Field.

    US Presswire file photo Jordan Zimmermann faces Juan Nicasio tonight at Coors Field.

    Aug 5, 2011, 2:28 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo Stephen Strasburg has packed his bags and is leaving Viera.

    Aug 4, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. Though they lost yesterday's series finale to the Braves, the Nationals played much better baseball over the second half of their homestand (once the trade deadline passed) than they did over the first half.
