The Dodgers are also in “serious pursuit” of Andrew Miller



I started this offseason thinking that the word “aggressive” was being used an awful lot in connection with hot stove rumors, and that maybe it would be this year’s “kick the tires.” But it appears Buster Olney is a one-man force trying to get “serious pursuit” going. He had it this morning with Andrew Miller and the Yankees. This is not a repeat:

Same analysis that applied to the Yankees applies here: Miller would be a great add, forming a 1-2 punch with Kenley Jansen.

Anyway, I like “serious pursuit.” It’s streets ahead of other all-purpose hot stove descriptors.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
