Strasburg didn't think he was All-Star

Stephen Strasburg heard -- and was flattered by -- all the talk about his possible All-Star candidacy. In the end, though, the rookie ace didn't believe he deserved that honor only six starts into his big-league career.

"I really didn't feel like I was qualified to make the team ... based on how much experience I have," Strasburg said before tonight's game against the Padres. "I'm sure I'll have opportunities somewhere down the road. But right now, it was never a goal of mine."

I like the idea of team alliances :)

He's a very humble guy and I like that about him. I know others could have feigned those words but I think he is being sincere which is just awesome. You want a guy like that on your team. Having a killer arm helps too. ;)

I am glad he does not believe he is an All-Star at least we do not have a diva on our hands!
