Anyone else think the Strasberg hype is a tad ridiculous?



OMGZ! BEST! PITCHING! PROSPECT! EVAR!!!

He throws 102 MPH!!!! His curve is filthier than Lincecum! He would be a team's #1 starter right nowz!

I mean I don't have a strong feeling about Strasberg one way or the other, but the hype is starting to get really nuts. Granted the numbers are impressive and his stuff and all that. But the hyperbole being used to describe him is really disconcerting and almost makes you WANT him to fail so that they can just shut up about the guy, which is sad really that that happens.

Does anyone out there feel he isn't worth the hype and might end up being a colassal bust? Either with some kind of proof or gut feeling? I mean we all saw what happened to Mark Prior. And when you're talking about pitchers NOTHING is ever certain. They can pull a Steve Blass, or they can pull a Zito, or they can get hurt all the time. Or even go the Jeff Allison route and become a hardcore drug user. I'm sure Scott Boras will trick the Nats into paying him 50 mill though, they seem pretty desperate.
