"Fister? I hardly even know her"

Thank you, MASN, for sharing this magical moment in the history of Doug Fister puns. Nationals 2, Braves 1: Ho hum, just another Doug Fister start, this one a brilliant 7 inning, 2 hit, shutout performance. And just another breeze in the 9th for Drew Storen, who finally got his job back. #RespectTheAce: Good on Matt Williams for sticking with his Ace with two outs and two...

However, for all intents and purposes, we will assume they get there.
