    Be sure to bring your appetite when you go to cheer on the Nats for Opening Day on Thursday.

    Nationals Park's Red Porch will be featuring a new burger in honor of pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who rocked the mound during Wednesday's game versus the New York Mets.

    The "Strasburger" -- not to be confused with Tortilla Coast's baseball-season delicacy of the same name -- weighs in at a whopping eight pounds. It comes topped off with American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, red onion, pickle chips, and a secret sauce.

    It's served with a side of fries and a pitcher of soda, but will set back more than just your diet. Though it's meant to feed eight people, the Strasbuger will cost you $59 per burger.
