The Stephen Strasburg phenomenon just keeps picking up steam. Frequent BA contributor Kirk Kenney has started a blog to monitor San Diego-area baseball in general and Strasburg in particular, and he reported Friday that the San Diego State ace touched 102 mph seven times in his 16-strikeout performance against Nevada. Kirk said that information came from the Aztecs’ coaches, and that they said their radar gun has typically been slower than scouts’ guns, not the other way around. Kenney said a scout he talked to Friday had Strasburg up to 101 on his Stalker gun early in the game, but he put his gun away by the middle innings.
If you’ve got Strasburg fever, be sure to check Kirk’s blog regularly–it will be updated every week with sights, sounds, rumors and innuendo from every Strasburg start.
