Last night at 11:58 and 43 seconds (according to Stan Kasten), the Nationals and stud prospect Stephen Strasburg agreed to terms. The deal is supposedly worth $15.1M over four years. The Nats will most likely try and get Strasburg in for a few innings in September, and he expects to be in the regular rotation by opening day 2010. This by no means fixes the laundry list of problems that the organization has, but with the team showing a little promise over the last month, this doesn’t hurt things. It’s nice to see that the Lerners decided to pry open their pocketbooks, even if they did so with a proverbial gun to their heads. If you’re looking for more info about the signing, here’s some more coverage from Dan Steinberg of the Post and Federal Baseball.
