A short story in two tweets:

And this — pointed out by Marc Normandin of SB Nation — from Dan Haren, back in October:

Haren is already threatening retirement if he can’t convince the Marlins to trade him back to Los Angeles somehow. If they traded him to Colorado he may consider auto-defenestration.

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.
