Quote of the Day: Bob Feller

“I think he’s done very well; of course this is not the 1927 Yankees
either.”

— Indians living legend Bob Feller, summing up Strasburg’s performance against the 2010 Cleveland Indians.

Feller had a lot to say about Strasburg, by the way.  The headline of the article — “Feller not overly-impressed by Strasburg” — is misleading and unnecessarily inflammatory, in my view. I think everything Feller said about him was realistic and insightful.  I mean, yeah, Strasburg is awesome and everything, but if you just watch ESPN or whatever you’d be led to believe that he’s invincible.  It shouldn’t take a guy like Feller to point that out — regular analysts could do it — but I’m glad he did it.
