Max Scherzer: About Last Night (September 07)

Before I discuss the day that was for Max Scherzer, let’s take a moment to think about what kind of pitcher throws a 3-1 slider with a runner on third after the first slider of the afternoon ended up hitting the backstop and said pitcher’s location was iffy at best.  That’s kind of gutsy, right? …

Max Scherzer: About Last Night (September 02)

Max Scherzer: About Last Night (August 14)

In high school I hit exactly one home run. I was a freshman, and the pitcher soft tossed one down near my ankles, and I golfed that pitch down the left field line for what amounted to the single most exhilarating batting experience of my teenage life. So what, you may ask. Well, it was …
