Joe Carter is a hero
Joe Carter is American.  Or a great pseudo-Canadian.  Whatever.

I think there may be hope for the Nats.  USA Today indicates that the Phillies have joined the AL East...

non-displaced fracture of his pitching arm.  I'm guessing several months before he's able to return.

Syndergaard today - complete game, 4 hit shut out, and hit a home run in a 1-0 win.  That's pretty damn good.

woo-hoo....one of the rare times that I will be watching my Jays over my Nats, as Vlad debuts, tonight !

watching the pre-game, now, and it's all about Vlad, with all the hype rarely/hopefully feeling worth it...
Hitting .157 with an OPS around .500. He’s no Ronald Acuna.

He’ll always be able to say he was at the Bee Game. What more do you need to drop in casual conversation 30 years from now to establish your Reds cred?  :mg:

Mike Fiers throws his second no-hitter on 131 pitches. The 300th no-hitter in MLB history.

how many folks have him as one of the top 20 pitchers in baseball over the past 3 years?  Is he better than Strasburg, who has never thrown a no-hitter?  One can be a fluke (Anibal Sanchez threw a no hitter, Dallas Braden threw a perfect game). This is just one of those wonderful quirks that happen.

As of 8 AM he was still a free agent in both my fantasy leagues.

Last night, Mike Fiers threw his second no-hitter. He no-hit the Reds on 131 pitches, with three batters reaching against him on two walks and an error. It was the 300th no-hitter in major league history, and Fiers became the 35th pitcher in major league history to throw multiple no-hitters. Fiers — Mike Fiers, the 22nd-round pick with the broken back — will now always be part of a history that begins with Joe Borden and the Philadelphia White Stockings, the history of Bumpus Jones and Hideo Nomo, Homer Bailey and Sandy Koufax, Bud Smith and Bob Gibson.

That’s the wonderful thing about pitching achievements, the no-hitter and the perfect game. With their length and intensity, with the level of collaboration and the sprinkling of luck that is necessary to sustain that nine-inning walk along the knife’s edge, there is so much room for serendipity. In the annals of the no-hitter, you can just as easily find the greatest of all time proving why they’re the greatest as you can a roster of unlikely heroes — rookies, journeymen, washed-up veterans — who, for those few hours, reach out and find perfection. And the same stadium that holds the memory of Vida Blue and Catfish Hunter blanking their opponents, of Rollie Fingers and Nolan Ryan, now holds a new one: of Mike Fiers in the dark late night, after the lights came back on.
Game almost was called due to lighting problems.  Fiers had a broken back and pelvis in college after an auto accident.
