He should be signing a record rookie contract with the Nats soon (?).

Does he get any minor league seasoning, or is he truly good enough to be placed in the rotation right away? I see that Buster Olney stated that he's probably better than AJ Burnett right now.

I'm guessing he spends a little time in AA or AAA and gets a September 1st look.

With his insane K/IP rate, I'm thinking about stashing him now, even in a nonkeeper league.

Strasburg worth waivering, when he is added, in a keeper league? We get to keep 4 hitters and 4 pitchers and on the pitching front I have, among other older/less good, Greinke, Garza, Hamels, and Shields.

Sure, when he's added, which may not be for a bit.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I hear he throws with both hands and has nipples that can produce milk.
