Quote:
The ball left a sizeable imprint around Max Scherzer’s right eye, the blue one, now marked with a large bruise to go along with his swollen nose. Fluid had built up from the swelling underneath his eye, and it took him some time pregame to get used to his face “jiggling” around as he warmed up.

This was the face staring back at the Phillies’ hitters as they stepped into the box Wednesday night -- already one of the most intimidating starters in baseball, pitching with a black eye, a broken nose and an unflinching, irritated scowl.

At no point after suffering those injuries during a bunting incident the day before did Scherzer ever entertain the idea of missing this start. But while he was on the mound, it was as if the injury seemed to anger him. And the Phillies paid the price for being in the way.

Scherzer struck out 10 and tossed seven scoreless innings to lead the Nationals to a 2-0 victory at Nationals Park, completing the sweep in Wednesday’s doubleheader over the Phillies and authoring an outing that undoubtedly will be remembered among the gutsiest in what is shaping up to almost certainly be a Hall-of-Fame career.

That one never made sense to me. The guy wanted to play here so bad but we thought Leake and Price were worthy of big contracts but not Scherzer? Huh?

With long term mainstays like Wacha, Lackey, Lynn, and Garcia...we just couldn't make room eh?

Since Max signed with the Nats, 33.5 WAR. Would be 7th all time in Cards history to pass Waino in another month or two.

Just a lil perspective.
