Nats Select Stephen Strasburg with 1st Pick
In a move that didn't surprise anyone, the Washington Nationals selected 20 year old pitcher Stephen Strasburg today in the MLB entry draft. The Nationals are now in a unique position because Strasburg's agent Scott Boras is expected to demand a record breaking contract for the young pitcher. The Nationals may not be ready to shell out the type of cash Boras is expected to demand which means they will be forced to explore the possibility of a sign and trade deal with the young prospect.
