Found May 08, 2013 on Nationals Enquirer:
Nationals 3, Tigers 1: Ho Hum, Jordan Zimmermann was spectacular again (7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 H, 101 pitches, 72 strikes). Raise your hand if you're kicking yourself for not taking those 25/1 preseason odds for J-Zimm winning NL Cy Young. Meanwhile, good on the Nationals for reversing their rainout ticket policy earlier today, but now we demand an explanation for the t-shirt Zimmermann wore for his postgame interview on MASN: mossy oak with a single bright yellow shoulder pad, 2012 Champions? He looks like he lost a bet. (Screencap via MASN/TV) Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

Harper Vs. Hirschbeck: Breaking Down The Ejection

I know I'm a bit late to the game here, but I was unable to write until today, so I figured it was better late than never to talk about Bryce Harper's ejection by third base umpire John Hirschbeck from Sunday afternoon's game in Pittsburgh.

Your Tigers have now won 9 out of 10 games, outscoring their opponents 74-25 (that’s a pythagorean winning % of 89%, or about 143 – 19).
