Stephen Strasburg is in the best shape of his life

Strasburg walks off

Stephen Strasburg‘s recovery from Tommy John surgery is going swimmingly, he says, and what’s more, he told CBS’s Ted Robinson that he’s feeling great:

“I’m definitely in the best shape of my life … Once you start throwing, it’s gonna be a long process just getting your strength back, but I feel great about it and I have a really good feeling that I’m gonna come back at 100 percent. … The surgery’s down to a science, and you’ve just got to do what the doctors tell you.”

Not the usual best-shape-of-his-life story because a lot of us have underwear older than Strasburg, and guys who play the BSoML card are usually older guys fighting physical decline.  But hey, it’s mid-January and nothing is going on so we’ll certainly take it.

    Hell, I’ve got condoms older than this guy.

      Are they in good shape? Or are they in the BEST shape they have ever been in?

    I am pretty sure he was in better shape last year, seeing as how he could, you know, throw the ball 100 mph with a 91 mph change.

    “Best shape of my life” looks like the early leader for overused sports term of 2011. If it holds on it will beat out 2010′s reigning champion phrase: “At the end of the day…”.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure the best shape of Stephen’s life involved an intact elbow.

    I like pie. If I made a graph of the various “shapes” of my life, it would be in a pie graph form. Pie.

    you know, I am literally in the best shape of my life after losing like, 50 pounds, but I don’t get a freakin’ article on the internet about it. WHERE’S MY MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT?!?!?!
