Behold: 10,000 calories and 59 dollars of The StrasBurger

34 Comments

Last month the Nationals announced that they’d be selling a massive eight-pound hamburger called “The StrasBurger” at the ballpark this season.

It costs a whopping $59 and checks in around 10,000 calories and 700 grams of fat, which means you’d have to split it about 10 ways to have it qualify as “really bad for you” rather than “will probably kill you.”

Natalie Lopez of NBCWashington.com got a look at the monstrosity and posted a story with a picture:

OK, so that’s huge. And it still looks like an actual hamburger, mostly, which is surprising. I also like that it comes with a basket of fries, because when eating a $59, eight-pound, 10,000-calorie hamburger it’s good to have some to nosh on too.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
