    Strasburg is just cruising right now…. I really have my eye on Meyers right now. If he can break out as a #2-4 starter in the bigs, we’d really be further along than predicted.

    Has anyone seen Ramirez play? If memory serves me right, the Nats paid 1million to sign him. For that amount, you’d expect him to be putting up exctiting #’s, but i just don’t see it. What is his ceiling?
