We told you last month that WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon was planning to send championship belts to 2013 Cy Young Award winners Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw. Well, Scherzer has received his and decided to show it off on his Twitter account this afternoon:
Pretty snazzy. Now if Scherzer starts wearing a robe to the mound and yells “woo” after every strikeout, I’ll be really impressed. Gotta play the part, you know.
MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.
Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.
The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
