This allows him to see in 3D without the glasses.— Razzball (@Razzball) June 21, 2017Now back for the 7th inning and it's more no-hitter, and, Jesus Christopher Ramirez, the Nats announcers are a bore.  Let's go mute for the 8th inning, and Dietrich gets, uh, diet rich of sliders.  Now, Ellis and goodbye no-hitter.  Of course, that was the point Dusty should've lifted Scherzer since even the announcers said Scherzer says he doesn't want to ever throw past 120 pitches.  You guessed it, he went past 120 pitches, and lost the lead, but, once again, a dazzler -- 8 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners (2 hits), 11 Ks, ERA at 2.09.  Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:]]> 4939778 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 3:07:01 EDT <![CDATA[Max Scherzer goes from cusp of third no-hitter to loss in eighth vs. Marlins]]> Max Scherzer threatens baseball history so regularly that sometimes the game seems to want to strike back.

Following his second no-hitter of the season in 2015, Max Scherzer talked to reporters about when it was that he started to think he had something special going in a start.

For a pitcher who, after five scoreless and hitless this afternoon in Miami, had taken a no-hit bid into the sixth 11 times in 82 starts for the Nationals, it was something he’d had plenty of opportunities to think about during his time in Washington’s rotation]]> 4939118 Wed, 21 Jun 2017 17:21:01 EDT Federal Baseball
<![CDATA[Marlins break up Scherzer's no-no, rally for win]]> Max Scherzer was on the brink of joining historical pitching company, but instead, he was victimized by a two-out error that led to an agonizing loss on Wednesday afternoon at Marlins Park.]]> 4938962 Wed, 21 Jun 2017 15:14:01 EDT <![CDATA[Scherzer strikes out 11 batters in hard-luck loss]]> Max Scherzer lost after allowing two unearned runs on two hits and one walk with 11 strikeouts across eight innings against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Spin: Scherzer held Miami off the scoreboard for seven frames before allowing a pair of unearned runs in the eighth inning. The right-hander wound up throwing 121 pitches on an afternoon when he lowered his ERA to 2.09 and his WHIP to 0.81. With ultra-low ratios and double-digit strikeout totals in each of his past six outings, Scherzer can make a case to be the No. 1 fantasy starter. His next start is scheduled for June 27 at home against the Cubs.]]> 4938959 Wed, 21 Jun 2017 15:07:22 EDT

Max Scherzer’s resume speaks for itself, however, the two-time Cy Young winner is in the midst of a lofty stretch that has catapulted him right onto the inside track to win a third such honor.

Scherzer has struck out 10 or more batters in each of his last five starts, but the superlatives do not stop there. Over those last five contests, Scherzer has dazzled observers with several pitching feats:

Only one of those facts is untrue, but the others shown there are just as Bunyan-esque as any tall tale.]]> 4938768 Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:07:01 EDT Beyond the Boxscore

Earlier this morning, Erica May Scherzer — wife of Max — announced that she and Max would be expecting a baby girl, arriving this November.

Happy Father's Day to the best dad-to-be we could ask for! Baby girl Scherzer debuts this November!!

Hypothetically, the baby could be coming directly after a World Series run for the Nats (in which Max Scherzer will obviously win MVP), but given that the baby will be a girl, naming her for the player with the game-winning hit may not fly, and giving the child the middle name “National” isn’t exactly the nicest welcome-to-the-world gift]]> 4936037 Sun, 18 Jun 2017 15:35:01 EDT Federal Baseball
