Is Stephen Strasburg really the next Nolan Ryan?

Alot of the media is calling this guy the next Clemens and Nolan Ryan.

Big build, versatile pitches, 103 mph fastball.

Most are assuring a top three of all time pitcher in the Stras'.

Stay tuned..
BTW Since the death of BALCO, this is now the era of pitching and no no's once again.
He's the real deal
He was impressive, but let's see him do it against somebody other than the Pittsburgh Pirates.

14 Ks in your debut against ANY major league team is f**king amazing. I think what I liked more is that he stayed calm in a time where every media outlet was eyes on him. Talk about pressure!

But yes, like Stoney said -- let's see him do it against a top team like the Rays or Yankees and then I'll be

Not at ALL. Ryan had strikeout stuff, but he also walked a lot of guys. He is definitely not the greatest pitcher of all time. Best strikeout pitcher, but not best ever.
