Hafner Homers Off Strasburg
Despite a 9-4 loss against the Nats, the highlight for most Tribe fans came as Pronk stepped to the plate and fed Strasburg a big ol' plate of Outta Here. I have no idea if Hafner is the first to homer off him or not, but that doesn't really matter. It was awesome to watch the ball get out of the park (nearly taking out a cameraman in the process, which would have netted him +500 points).
Strasburg's 1/1 auto'd cards are going for crazy money in online auctions. All I have to say is that if you have one, sell it now while the hype is high. Because when the hype finally settles down to his actual level of longevity, he'll be relegated to the dollar bin. Well, okay, the "Under $25" bin anyway. I can assure you: should I get one of his cards, it'll be for sale before the wrapper even hits the floor.
By the end of the season, I would love to hear from the doofs paying tens of thousands for his cards. Will they frame the card with a little plaque that reads: "I Paid Too Much"?
