Yankees were too cheap to sign Scherzer, and now we're floundering to the finish line

Last winter, many people assumed that free agent pitcher Max Scherzer would end up playing for the Yankees. I bet Max Scherzer even assumed it. Why not? The Evil Empire had gone two seasons without sniffing the playoffs. We had fallen to the second highest payroll, ($217 million), a vast distance below the Dodgers ($271 million, accordting to Cot's Baseball Payrolls site....

Yes, he did it again! Max Scherzer throws his second no-hitter of the season

What a strange season for the Washington Nationals and their fans. Despite a disappointing season in which a World Series favorite fell woefully short of expectations, the Nats did boast the likely NL MVP in Bryce Harper and got two no-hitters from Max Scherzer. Scherzer became the sixth pitcher in MLB history to throw two no-hitters in a season, striking out 17 batters in a 2-0...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 2, Mets 0 (10/3/15)

What else can you say about this game except, congratulations Max Scherzer. That was one of the most dominating pitching performances that has ever taken place in the history of baseball. It only took 109 pitches for him to complete the no-hitter, and in doing so struck out 17 batters. Were it not for a lazy Yunel Escobar throw, and an even worse Clint Robinson reaction, Scherzer...

Max Scherzer throws second no-hitter of the season

Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer tossed his second no-hitter of the season on Saturday night against the Mets—a feat that no other MLB pitcher had achieved in a regular season since Nolan Ryan did in 1973.

Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer create stir with choking routine

Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended for the remainder of the season, but that doesn’t mean Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper will go the rest of the season without having a teammate’s hand at his throat.

Putting the Nationals disappointment in context

Other teams are clinching divisions, and Nationals players are fighting one another. Not that players on good teams haven’t fought, and not that the Nationals’ incident was in some way unique, but this isn’t how it was supposed to go. A few days ago, the Nationals were mathematically eliminated from winning the division, and in reality it feels like it’s been even longer...
