Stephen Strasburg has arrived. The biggest thing to hit D.C. since the countdown crossing signal, the 21-year-old starting pitching phenom took care of the Pittsburgh Pirates last night in impressive fashion — striking out 14 while allowing just two runs in seven innings.

After notching his first career win in front of a standing-room only crowd, Strasburg set off to save Washington D.C….

1) He got the CEOs of BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, ConocoPhillips and Chevron to testify about oil rig safety before the House Energy and Environment Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee.

2)Convinced that the South Carolina senatorial race needed a breath of fresh air, Strasburg arranged for Alvin Greene — an unemployed veteran who has yet to establish a website, use campaign signs or raise campaign funds — to win the S.C. Democratic nomination.

    About Me

    When I was fifteen, my baseball coach condemned me to a stands-bound life. "Graham, you're a pretty good fielder," he said. "But unfortunately it's easier to teach kids how to field than it is to show them how to hit." Stung by this unceremonious end to my baseball career, I trained my crosshairs on his breed. Over time, I have come to realize that he isn't unique, American sports are full of coaches just like him....

    Recently, I have written weekly Yankee columns for the Bronx News Network blog, and articles for the Norwood News, a Bronx newspaper, as well as Sumter, SC's newspaper, The Item. I am currently a Master's candidate at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
