We are now three quarters into the season and the playoff picture has become slightly clearer. The first place Detroit Tigers visit Citi Field today in the midst of a stretch that has seen them go 23-10 since the All-Star break. Within that same string of games, starter Max Scherzer has gone 5-0 in six starts while upping his season pitching record to 18-1, far and away the best record in the majors. Scherzer is easily the leading candidate to win the Cy Young Award in the American League, a league the Tigers seem to be the favorite to represent in the World Series. On Saturday, he is opposed by Matt Harvey in a national TV game on FOX. Oddly enough, this will be the second time they face each other this year at Citi Field; the first, of course, being the All Star game held there on July 16th. Harvey is also a Cy Young candidate in the National League, but unfortunately for Mets fans not the favorite. Clayton Kershaw, a former Cy Young winner, right now is the front ru...

Everyone already knew that Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer was having a special season.
On Saturday on one of the national FOX broadcasts, Scherzer added something extra to the mix -- a game-winning hit.
What was billed as a pitchers' duel between Scherzer and Mets starter Matt Harvey lived up to the hype as they reprised their All-Star Game starting roles at Citi Field...
It’s not exactly the fight of the century or even the Thrilla In Manilla, but when the Mets’ Matt Harvey and the Tigers’ Max Scherzer oppose each other on Saturday at Citi Field, it will mark the first time in MLB history that both All-Star Game starters have faced off at any point during the same regular season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Whether by design or just...
If the New York Mets are to win this weekend, today is their best chance, with Matt Harvey starting. The sad thing, is that feeling comes with the statistical backdrop of a 13-12 record in his starts this season, including the Mets going 6-10 in his last 16 starts.
HARVEY: What’s he really think about his support?
Harvey has a 2.67 ERA with a 119-to-17 strikeouts-to-walks ration...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Max Scherzer outpitched Matt Harvey in their All-Star rematch, striking out 11 and hitting a stunning RBI double that sent the Detroit Tigers to a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday.
Scherzer (19-1) joined Rube Marquard in 1912 and Roger Clemens in 2001 as the only major league pitchers to win 19 of their first 20 decisions in a season.

Let me get this straight ...
I paid $480 to attend a baseball game started by Matt Harvey and Max Scherzer end in a 3-0 score in favor of Scherzer's team, with Harvey's team getting three hits back in July, when I could have done the exact same thing for about $450 less yesterday?
For an extra $450, I got six less hits, 20 more degrees, the privilege of spending ten...
Max Scherzer is having a very good season. This has been the best season of his career, by quite a large margin. He’s missing bats, his walks are down, and he’s turned into one of the best pitchers in the American League. Still, the most important thing to help his case for the Cy Young Award happened four years ago: he joined the Detroit Tigers.
Scherzer currently leads the...
On the whole this seems like a ridiculous question. One is a guy mowing down the competition with a great ERA and an 18-1 record. The other is a 32 year old middle infielder who has enough pop in his bat to be a good piece in the bottom half of the order. However, Infante […]

How To Fly
By Douglas Adams
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Pick a nice day and try it.
The first part is easy. All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and the willingness not to mind that it’s going to hurt.
That is, it’s going to hurt...
