Stephen Strasburg packed stadiums in Harrisburg, Syracuse and Rochester. His major-league debut was a quick sellout in Washington.

But how will he play in Cleveland?

Interesting question, since the Indians are among the worst home draws in baseball. Since opening day, they've had just three crowds over 20,000 (and none over 30,000), all during a weekend series against the in-state rival Reds.

Strasburg makes his second start -- and his first road start -- Sunday at Progressive Field. This morning, the Indians said that they've sold 4,000 tickets for that game in the last week, and 1,000 between midnight and noon today.

There are still tickets available -- for now.

UPDATE, 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday: The Indians said they sold another 2,000 tickets this afternoon, making it 3,000 for the day.

Starsburg is a good young prospect, no question.  He won't win 10 days though.  First of all, he plays for the Nationals.  2nd, he's already made 12 starts.  Washington will shut him down at the end of August as he will have thrown 175 innings by then.  Let's see him when he faces some real ML hitters.  There aren't any on the Pirates and they got 2 runs off of him.  Unfortunately, the first time he will go against real hitters isn't until sometime in July when he faces Florida.  Next up is Cleveland, then Baltimore, San Diego, Mets & San Fran.  Is there an offensive all-star anywhere on any of those teams?  LOL.
