Ladies and gentlemen, back by popular demand, it’s time for another round of “caption this.”

The game is fairly simple, as you hopefully know by now. We supply the photo and you bring the witty reader-submitted captions. You might not win any cool prizes, but you’ll be formally recognized for being better than your peers and will get some love here on the blog.

Here’s our humble offering for this photo to help get folks started:

“Rookie Stephen Strasburg has become so desperate for run support in the Washington Nationals’ lineup that’s he now holds auditions on his off days.”

Think you can do better? Leave a comment below with your best caption.

[Editor’s note: The winner is Milhouse44 with a caption of, “You kids get off my lawn or I have 95 mph change up for you AND your old man.”]

    Tough picture to work with Murf…your quote doesn’t even have anything to do with the picture! How about…

    As Strasburg does his best VT Logo while beaning a Miami fan in the head, he yells, “Hey Bartman, get away from the field!”

    That is the best I have.

    Strasburg demonstrates that indeed, it is “right leg out” when doing the Hokey Pokey.

    OK..I’m an idiot Murf, ignore my first comment. I should make a rule no commenting until my hangover is gone.

    Stephen Strasburg finally loosens up a bit in front of the fans and does a killer rendition of “I’m a Little Teapot.”
