Fang's Bites comes word that TBS, originally scheduled to air the Red Sox battling the Phillies on its National Game of the Week, will instead show Stephen Strasburg making his second Major League start as the Nationals take on the Indians in Cleveland.
Dick Stockton, Buck Martinez and Dennis Eckersley will call the game that will begin at 1:00pm ET. TBS will also add some additional cameras for the broadcast, including two super slow motion cams.
This is a smart move as many fans will be clamoring to get a live glimpse of Strasburg in action, coming off his seven inning, 14 strikeout performance in his debut. It seems like TBS shows the Red Sox, Phillies or Yankees every week anyway, and this will give fans a chance to catch a young phenom and an up-and-coming Nationals team.
