Stephen Strasburg, Meet Your Mr. Glass

Now that we know who you are... I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense. In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain's going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero, and most time's they're friends, like you and me. I should've known way back when. You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass.

The anti-Strasburg debut has arrived: reliever Jay Sborz, called up yesterday to the majors. And his line read like Major League 3 (aka Back to the Minors).

Hits Barajas by pitch to load bases

Hits Francouer by pitch to drive in run

Two outs and three singles later, Sborz leaves with a 67.50 ERA

All of us at SoSG wish Mr. Sborz better luck in his next appearance. Unless it's against the NL.

Speaking of Stephen Strasburg and comics, anyone else notice Mr. Strasburg's eerie similarity to Watchmen's Moloch?

Speaking of Watchmen, anyone else notice the similarity between them and Peanuts.
