The Nats Blog’s own Ted Youngling sat down with Vinny Cartiglia of MetsBlog to discuss this week’s series between the Washington Nationals and the New York Mets.
The Nats began a three-game series with the Mets tonight at 7:10 pm.
Vinny Cartiglia: The Mets are scheduled to face Stephen Strasburg during this three game set, who I am very excited to see up close. Do Nationals fans believe he can live up to the hype that has surrounded him since being the first overall selection just two years ago?
Ted Youngling: Strasburg continues to impress me with each outing. It amazes me that despite undergoing Tommy John surgery over a year ago he still made it back in time to make five starts last September. In a weird way, I feel the hype surrounding Bryce Harper has taken much of the pressure off Strasburg.
