Why I love/hate Stephen Strasburg

Here's why I love him:

I sat down last night on MLBnet, to see what the hype was about. I got the young fireballer fanning 13 of the Pirates, and doing it with a blazing 98-mph fastball.

Wow, I said to myself. I really like this guy. And you know who pitched against him in his first game...

A former Yankee. Jeff Karstens. doo-doo-doo-doo....

Now here's where I begin to despise Mr. Nolan Ryan Jr. This morning, while checking the blogs, I happen upon two blogs (They know who they are) who show what I had been fearing.

That Transmogrifier Starsburg that was auctioned off last night? It's now Card #661. And you can only get it online.


I mean, why on Earth would Topps just randomly put out another gimmick? It's just...uh...words cannot describe the anger I am feeling right now. Couldn't we just wait for Card #UH1 in Updates (Or Series III). I just doesn't make sense at all.

I still want it, though.
