Stephen Strasburg Is No "Savior"......yet

Today is a "Nationals" holiday in our nation's capital. Instead of breaking down exactly how President Barack Obama will work with republicans on the latest waste on money our country spends, the entire DC area is all "a-twitter" about the 21 year-old "savior" of the Washington Nationals Stephen Strasburg. The overall number one pick in the 2009 MLB draft, he is simply the most hyped pitcher to hit the big leagues since Mark Prior back in 2002. How did that work out....ugh!

However as I am continuing to watch the hype surrounding tonight Nationals/Pirates tilt of the ages (huh?), is it really fair to be talking about a 21 year old pitcher as a "savior" of any organization?
