Max Scherzer 
All of Max's starts are dedicated to his late brother, Alex Scherzer R.I.P.

Max Scherzer  9.0   1    0     0       1      16      0        119-86      
16 K's breaks the Nationals record of 14 held by Stephen Strasburg,
set at his debut.
(Franchise record is 18 set by Bill Gullickson in 1980.)

I'm going to start rockin' one brown contact when I go to Nats Park (I have blue eyes).  And put Hershey's syrup on everything.

This is a cool article saying he was actually better than perfect today :)  Max is what I thought Stras would be-must watch viewing every time he starts, such fun to watch pitch!

Scherzer's game was worth 0.6 WAR yesterday.

Because it was a CG or something else?

Closest I think I've seen to what Scherzer did today was Pedro's 17 K no walk game v. the Yankees.  However, the one hit was a Chili Davis homer, so he was charged with one earned run.  Scherzer's I think was better, due to the quality of the hit and the shut out, despite giving up a second base runner via the BB.

More because fWAR for pitchers is primarily based on FIP and Scherzer's FIP has been great this year due to his ability to strike guys out.

I don't care about "very risky".  This isn't football, with a salary cap.  Rizzo and the Lerners agreed to spend the Lerners' money; it's otherwise sunken cost because of the lack of a salary cap.  If we even win one world series thanks to Scherzer he will be worth the investment.

It's the first one I've ever "seen".

He could actually be a bargain now

What an absolute bull dog and a complete and total stud

Best pitcher in baseball IMO and at this point it's not so close ...
