UPDATE: It's Strasburg Day… for a second time

12:23pm: It is Stephen Strasburg Day again in south Florida, as the young right-handed starter is scheduled to make his second appearance of the spring this afternoon against the Cardinals. 

Strasburg turned in two scoreless frames in his Grapefruit League debut last week versus the Tigers, hitting 98 MPH with his fastball and displaying a gorgeously sharp slider.  According to CBSSports.com’s Danny Knobler, tickets for Sunday’s spring game are fairly tough to come by, and the Nationals are certainly hoping that excitement will carry over to the nation’s capital once the regular season begins.

Washington manager Jim Riggleman has yet to make a decision on where Strasburg will open the 2010 season and continues to tell reporters that the club is employing a “wait and see” approach.  In other words, the 2009 No. 1 overall pick is in control of his own destiny.  If he continues to rattle off scoreless innings we’ll see him in a big league uniform in early April.

    Br-r-r-r-r-r, sounds depressingly like a remake. What was wrong with the first one?

    Incidentally, I’m collecting all the odd pairs of words this otherworldly spam destroyer is throwing at me. Some day I plan to use them in a cycle of haiku.
