Max Scherzer was on a tight schedule Sunday

Play episode

Born and raised in Miami, Florida. I used to play baseball for a living; I walked a lot and didn't hit enough. Now I write words for a living and drop absolute bombs every Sunday for my men's league team.

The Sopranos is more groundbreaking than it is good.

Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer went into his start on Sunday against the Miami Marlins knowing he had a pregnant wife in the hospital. He knew she’d give birth to their third child very soon, likely that day. But first, like a true dad, he had some work to knock out at the office. It’s best to have things in order before such a major event like that, after all. Max Scherzer had to spend a few hours mowing down Major League hitters before he caught the birth of his child. So that’s what he did.

Quick Work

Max Scherzer attacked the lowly Marlins lineup from the jump. He threw 23 of 31 first pitch strikes, and struck out nine in his complete game, one-run, five-hit gem, which is a good figure for most pitchers. It’s actually below average for Mad Max, however, who typically averages between 11 and 12 K/9.

Did he pitch to a little more contact than usual due to the circumstances? Perhaps. It also helped that the Marlins sent out a borderline-AAA lineup to face him, so he and catcher Yan Gomes probably weren’t threatened by Miami putting the ball in play. Either way, he got his share of punch outs, induced soft contact, didn’t walk anyone, and was out of there in a brisk two hours and 37 minutes. Quick day at work that would make Commissioner Rob Manfred proud.

Dad of the Year?

Less than two hours after the game ended, Max and Erica Scherzer welcomed their third child into the world, a boy named Derek Alexander. How many other dads can say they threw a complete game and didn’t miss the birth of their child in the same day? Not many. Max Scherzer is my early nominee for Dad of the Year. When you make your employer and your wife happy in the same day, the day she’s set to give birth no less, that’s gotta be worth something.

Max Scherzer. DOTY.
