Marlins handle Scherzer and hold off the Nationals, 4-3

Among the many reasons the Washington Nationals find themselves in this situation — 6 1/2 games behind the first-place New York Mets in the National League East with 35 left to play and autumn peeking around the corner — Max Scherzer’s second-half slide is perhaps the most curious.

Nats Journal: Max Scherzer records 200th strikeout in ‘frustrating’ loss

DENVER — Max Scherzer used the word “frustrating” again and again after Thursday night’s 3-2 loss to the Rockies, the only way to sum up an outing that marked progress and a milestone, but ended in defeat. He left after six innings and a batter — Jose Reyes, who  had singled to lead off the seventh and eventually scored the third, decisive run that sent Scherzer to his 10th loss of the season.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: How Max Scherzer adjusted after his shortest outing of the season, and how he’ll know if it worked

DENVER — After his shortest outing of the season, an uncharacteristic three-inning, six-run showing in San Francisco last weekend, Nationals’ right-hander Max Scherzer headed to the clubhouse and pulled up pictures of his delivery from that game and more successful ones earlier in the season. Frame by frame, split-second by split-second, he tried to spot the differences. He did not find many.Read full article >>

NL Cy Young race: Scherzer falters, while Greinke and Kershaw surge

A few weeks ago the Nationals’ Max Scherzer seemed to be a lock for the NL Cy Young Award, but his stumbles since the all-star break might be enough to eliminate him from contention.The Nats’ $200-million man is 6-6 with a 5.18 ERA in the second half. According to Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP), which measures what a player’s ERA would look like over a given period of time if the pitcher were to have experienced league-average results on balls in play and league-average timing, he’s not as bad as his ERA looks thanks to striking out 12.0 batters per nine innings, but it is...

Giants pound Max Scherzer, win 8-5

It was dicey for a bit, but the bullpen locked the game down. It doesn't matter if it's 2000, with Bonds/Kent/Burks, or if it's 2011 with Fontenot/Huff/Schierholtz: When I see someone like Max Scherzer listed as the probable starter against the Giants, I assume the worst. Baseball doesn't work like that, it's not automatic like a lopsided heavyweight fight, but it's something that's hard to shake. Max Scherzer? Dude throws 95 with breaking balls that move 30 feet, and he can put them wherever he wants. Where do you even start? This team, though, apparently features the Max Scherzer of...
