2021 Game of the Year: Nominations open

Photo by Norm Hall/ At least fewer wins makes the process a bit simpler... Taking it as read that the game of the year should be a W, that does mean we can immediately cross 110 contenders of the list, in a Squid Game-like display of savage reduction. This is definitely one of the more free-format categories, since there’s not really an objective metric which can determine a game’s “quality”. Therefore, I’m going to fire up a few candidates, but am definitely open to other candidates. I’m also not sure of whether or not to include Tyler Gilbert’s no-hitter...

April 6: Matt Peacock’s MLB debut vs. Rockies I’m just going to defer to ‘Hacks on this one. The Diamondbacks were 1-3, visiting Coors, and the pitching is already depleted. They call up Peacock from AA on April 6, and that very night it goes extra in Coors. His first major league appearance wasn’t in regulation, like Tyler Gilbert’s first three mlb relief appearances were, or the third inning as a long man in a blow out. It was the eleventh...
