This is not a repeat from, well, any point in the past several seasons:
Maybe, eventually, they’ll get one?
In other news, Jose Valverde is available. C’mon, Dombrowski. Make a trade if you have to, but you can get Valverde for free! We need this to happen.
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.
