    Mark your calendars, Stephen Strasburg will make his major league debut June 8th, according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson (via Twitter). The right-hander will test his stuff against a major league offense for the first time in Washington next Tuesday against the Pirates.
    The Nationals put off the top draft pick's debut long enough for him to dominate the upper minors and eliminate the chance that he goes to arbitration four times. Strasburg will not pick up more than 118 days of service time this year, so he will not be a super two after 2012.

    He definitely looks like the real deal. Very Roger Clemens-esque.

    Didn't he earn his first loss in his last outing? Weird they announce the date after that happens.

    Even weirder that "major league offense" and "Pittsburgh" are in the same sentence.

    Anyone know if this will be aired on ESPN or some other national network?
