The Stephen Strasburg Fallout (A Reflection)

by Stephen Jones

From the much-anticipated debut
Standing on a mound of dirt
To voicing Letterman’s “Top 10”
Standing on a mound of media

Only days apart quite a “change up”
Perhaps more so & swifter
Than the time he spent between pitches
(The umpire asking him to “slow down”)

From baseball’s eager expectation
From its projection of possibilities
& into media’s spotlight attention
In history 14Ks still outweigh a Top 10
