I presume that Sale was taken out for purely precautionary reasons, after coming off the DL.

I hope that was why!

Now I find myself hoping we don't score a fifth run, with Kimbrel coming in!

Sale was about unhittable, and had a 85 pitch limit, maybe the brain trust didn't want to push it and played it conservatively.

Let him leave with a good feeling over dominant performance.

Kimbrel's been an adventure, he was ok today, got squeezed on what should have been a strike 3 on the BB.

Sweet pitching duel right now at Wrigley

 3 hits combined through 6 vs Scherzer and Hamels.

Would be a shame if we dont get a Nats-Cubs 7-gamer this year.

Scherzer is close to "Pedro in his prime" territory.

Well...

for the 12th time - the fucking Treinen deal was stupid

That said - how do you keep Madsen in when he had the command he showed?

Touki Touissant gets the start for the Braves today.  I recal wanting Mwets to draft him a few years back (may have been the Conforto year)

1-1 through 3.  Alright, Tookster.

The Utes are resilient. But the rest of the month will tell the tale. Either it's midnight for Cinderella, already, or it's Rocky Balboa time.

Either way, Scherzer's no decision deserved.

It wasn't quite the pitcher's duel of last night.

Who knew the Mets could play long-ball?

Twinbill?

Severino was not the pitcher the Yankees needed tonight.

And CC went on the DL.

Can the Yankees hang onto the top WC slot? Or onto a WC slot at all?
