Friday was a highly anticipated day for Chicago Cubs fans. Major offseason acquisition Marcus Stroman was set to make his first start and appearance in a game for the team. Stroman dazzled in his first outing with the Northsiders.

In usual early Spring Training fashion, Stroman only pitched two innings in his first time out. However, the Strow Show was perfect with three strikeouts against the six batters he faced. The dances were in full force on Friday night out in Arizona.

Yeah, Stroman is going to be a whole lot of fun for the Cubs this year. The K-strut is in midseason form, and so is his pitching.

Barring a massive ideology shift, Kyle Hendricks is the presumed starter on Opening Day. That means Stroman would make his first regular season start on April 8 against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field.

Following the game Stro shared how he felt about the start.
