How hard is it?

This is a very specific post to the DC area, bear with me. The Nationals had to wait until the 11th hour to sign their #1 draft pick, Stephen Strasburg. There's plenty of blame to go around.

The Nationals showed some inability to sign the prior #1 pick, who is now working on a deal with the Royals. Stephen Strasburg thought he was in the NFL trying to hold a team hostage. Scott Boras, superagent, tried to finagle $50M out of the Nationals for a college pitcher that's never thrown in the majors.

Now they signed him to a substantial deal, $15.1M. That's worthy of some props. Stephen, that weight you feel is the weight of waiting until the last minute and then getting a pretty big deal that is entirely guaranteed. Stank-0 expects to see you get called up in short order.

There's really not much that Stank-0 expects from the Boras nor the Nationals except the status quo. Strasburg alone won't make the Nationals contender or even that much better next season. Boras still gets his percentage and next year there will be some other athlete that will get gassed up by Boras.
