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. Scherzer allowed no runs on three hits while walking four and striking out 11 in six innings in the 3-0 victory, improving to 19-1 this season.

Our Ace Is Tired… Forget The “Harvey Days” And Focus On The “Harvey Years”

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...
