Yes, he did it again! Max Scherzer throws his second no-hitter of the season

What a strange season for the Washington Nationals and their fans. Despite a disappointing season in which a World Series favorite fell woefully short of expectations, the Nats did boast the likely NL MVP in Bryce Harper and got two no-hitters from Max Scherzer. Scherzer became the sixth pitcher in MLB history to throw two no-hitters in a season, striking out 17 batters in a 2-0...

Scherzer throws a No-No for Nationals

The Washington Nationals are done for the season.  It was a disappointing season, to say the least.  But, that wasn’t the end for Nats’ ace Max Scherzer.  Scherzer ended his 2015 season with a NO HITTER and recorded a whopping 17 strikeouts. Scherzer became the first pitcher to toss two no hitters in a season since 1973. The Nationals completed a double header sweep today...

Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer create stir with choking routine

Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended for the remainder of the season, but that doesn’t mean Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper will go the rest of the season without having a teammate’s hand at his throat. On Thursday night, Harper and Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer created a buzz on social media when Scherzer jokingly choked Harper...Read More

Max Scherzer Comes Five Outs Shy of Second No-Hitter of Season in Nats Win vs. Reds

Putting the Nationals disappointment in context

Other teams are clinching divisions, and Nationals players are fighting one another. Not that players on good teams haven’t fought, and not that the Nationals’ incident was in some way unique, but this isn’t how it was supposed to go. A few days ago, the Nationals were mathematically eliminated from winning the division, and in reality it feels like it’s been even longer...

Max Scherzer yells at Matt Williams, refuses to leave game

Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer preferred not to be taken out of Friday night’s game against the Miami Marlins. So he politely asked manager Matt Williams to leave him in, and Williams respectfully obliged. OK, not really. Scherzer already was over the 100-pitch mark and had a runner on second base when Williams came out for a mound visit in the seventh inning. Yet...

Max Scherzer Yells at Manager Matt Williams He Wants to Stay in Game

Matt Williams wanted to see where Max Scherzer was after seeing his ace surrender a two-out double in the seventh inning. He may not have anticipated the response he got. Scherzer was emphatic about wanting to stay in the game and face Miami Marlins’ Dee Gordon. “I want it,” Scherzer appears to yell at Williams. “I f****** want it. I f****** want it.” The sequence was...

Max Scherzer making clever pitches for pinch-hitting duties

Given that Max Scherzer openly — and apparently jokingly — campaigned earlier this season against pitchers hitting in the National League, relegating the practice to the annals of baseball history, it’s surprising that the Washington Nationals ace apparently openly — and again perhaps jokingly — campaigns for pinch-hitting duties. Even better, he does so in...Read More...

Scherzer and Harper: Making history with Nats' 1-2 punch

Last Thursday, Nationals fans had the season flash before their eyes when Bryce Harper‘s leg buckled while attempting an aggressive throw. The Nationals, to this point, have managed to withstand certain injuries, but no injury would be more crippling than a big one to the best hitter in the game. Thankfully for those with an […]

Max Scherzer just misses perfect game, throws no-hitter

Max Scherzer sure is earning that new contract. Scherzer, who signed a $210 million deal with the Washington Nationals over the offseason, came within one strike of throwing a perfect game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Nationals Park. The right-hander instead settled for a no-hitter as the Nats blanked the Bucs 6-0. Scherzer recorded two quick outs in the ninth inning...
