All systems are go for Strasburg

"Stephen Strasburg's delivery was flawless. Arms crossed in front of his locker, the 23-year-old right-hander didn't let a smile sneak onto his face as the words left his mouth.

"I was just maxing out at 88," Strasburg said after pitching two innings in the Washington Nationals' 10-2 Grapefruit League loss to the Houston Astros on Sunday. "So that's about right."

The joke hung in the air. Laughter followed a few seconds later.

Strasburg is known for his fastball that averaged 95.8 mph in five September starts last season, not his one-liners with reporters."
