Giancarlo Stanton hit in face by pitch, suffers laceration, fractures, dental damage (vid/pics)

A frightening scene played out at the ballpark on Thursday night, a scene that no one ever wants to see during a game, not matter where one’s particular baseball allegiances lie. Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, MLB leader in RBI with 105 and NL-leading 37 home runs, was struck in the face by a pitch […] The post Giancarlo Stanton hit in face by pitch, suffers laceration...

Mike Fiers takes to Twitter to apologize to Giancarlo Stanton

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is having, arguably, his best season as a big leaguer and after one errant pitch…it’s likely done. Down 4-0 to the Milwaukee Brewers, the 24-year-old MVP candidate took an 88 mile per hour Mike Fiers fastball to the face and, according to the Miami Herald, suffered “multiple facial fractures”, “dental damage” and a “facial...

This Guy Is On Fiers….This Guy Is On Fiers…

Low voice, "Wow." Digs ditch, steps down, "Wow." Need more emphasis. Buys a mini-excavator, consults with architects about installing a down escalator, begins construction, gets behind on schedule, fires a guy that smokes more than he digs, hires a foreman that seems like he knows what he's doing, foreman runs off with money, tracks foreman down in Aruba...

Fantasy baseball go add Mike Fiers: Let’s hope it’s not too late!

Honestly, let’s hope it’s not too late to add Mike Fiers to the Fantasy Baseball squad. I know I’m too late on this video, but to be fair…I did mention Fiers would not only make a great stream option Thursday, but that he would make for a solid addition down the stretch. As a rookie in 2012, Fiers had a 9-10 record with a 3.14 ERA in 22 starts (127 IP). He was striking out...

Rank Relief: Michael Fiers should stay in the rotation…maybe

McCutch going clutch in extras….walk off My friend asks me on Google Talk today where I was valuing Andrew McCucthen.  Now, walk off home runs aren’t a category in any fantasy league I know, but if they were, you’d be happy with Cutch tonight.  This was your basic late inning relief no out walk off home run.  On a 2-2 count, Cutch took Fiers over the right center field wall...

Brewers' Fiers struggles with command in loss

MILWAUKEE With just three home runs given up in 82 innings before Saturday's start against the Phillies, Michael Fiers had established himself as not only one of the best young pitchers in baseball this season, but also as one of the best, regardless of experience, at limiting long balls. But in a fashion that fell in line with his last start a 2.2-inning stinker that Fiers...

'Deceptive pitching' key to Fiers success

MILWAUKEE When Charlie Sullivan met Michael Fiers for the first time, Fiers was too old to be a big-time prospect. He had too much of an injury history having just recently recovered from a car accident that resulted in four fractured vertebrae. And his fastball was nothing to write home about it hovered in the high 80's. But between innings at a Deerfield Beach High School...

Pitcher Profile: Michael Fiers Is On Fire, Don’t Have No Fears

Looking at his name, I would certainly think it’s pronounced more like “fears,” but it’s actually pronounced “fires.” Infinitely cooler, and certainly appropriate for his immensely successful rookie campaign. With a Brewers starting rotation dealing with an early season-ending injury to Chris Narveson, then Marco Estrada pulling his quad rounding first, Michael Fiers...

Milwaukee's Fiers has a blue-flame passion

MILWAUKEE It was nearing 2:30 a.m. in early January 2008, as Michael Fiers fought to keep his eyes open. He stared into the darkness of the Florida Turnpike ahead of him, continuing to drive on, while his vision grew ever hazier. He already knew this had been a bad decision, choosing to avoid the traffic by driving through the night, rather than waiting till morning to begin his...
