Walked off the Phillies. The Nats sweep the double header. One more game tomorrow to spoil their season.

Rob Manfred is apparently chatting with the Players Assoc in regards to making the expanded playoff format permanent.

Sixteen is too many. I've long called for a twelve team format, with six teams from each league playing round robin, fifteen games per team in nineteen days, with each team playing five three game series vs each other team.

Really happy for that Cuban kid Hernandez. 32 y.o. and finally living his dream with a walkoff to remember. good for him.

In the pregame press conference Martinez said that Hernandez didn't want the ball. He said that it wasn't his first career home run.

Would it not be GREAT if we swept this seres and damaged their playoff chances? After a day the NASDAQ had I need SOMETHING ANYTHING to smile about tonite. Win tonite and every Philly fan assclown will pee down their leg because they got swept by a team that had 4-5 backups starting in each game.

Do the Nats coaches keep a stat of Max's ERA, WHIP etc. with 100 pitches or fewer and for 100 pitches-plus? I don't know if it's my imagination, but keeping Max in too long does not hold good results. We know he wants to pitch as long as possible but at what point do you get diminishing results, even with a shaky bullpen?

A: Thomas Boswell
Stats can be eloquent --sometimes, unfortunately.

Here is the OPS against Scherzeer by Times Through the Batting Order.

1st --.695

2nd --.663

3rd-- .929.

By pitches, the same pattern of getting tired shows up.

1-25 pitches -- .922 OPS (a Max tend to have bad 1st innings)

26-50 --.490.

51-75 -- .604.

76-100 --.671.

101+ --1.702!!!

The very good news is that he is excellent right UP to 100 pitches. That, to me, means he can probably be very good for years, as long as he's healthy.

But the 101+ is stark --at least this year. Hitters are 9-for-18 with two doubles and three homers. Small data sample, short season. But both the Nats and Max need to look at this hard, and honestly, as '21 unfolds. And be prepared to adjust as necessary. Maybe don;t START the season by limiting him, but don't be stubborn about it either. At SOME point in nhis career, this pattern will probably become permanent.



Thanks for posting that. Confirms what probably most of us watching the Scherzer starts have been thinking. He's getting to be a better version of Hellickson, fine for five but he needs to be pulled while he is still pitching well, not after the blow up.


Sense that Max has gotten more intoxicated with himself since the heroics he pulled off in the WS with the neck injury, etc. His Willis Reed-like aura and all that. Sure, the guy is a future HOF'er and he's earned a certain amount of cred. But someone needs to draw a stronger line in the sand with him. That being said, the Nats bullpen has sucked this season, so there's that, too.
