Max Scherzer earned his third Cy Young Award last season, and his performance this season proves he’s hunting for a fourth.

It’s not obsessive, Scherzer says, scoffing at the notion that his work habits border on the pathological. It’s the day after his start against Tampa Bay, and the Nats and Rays are slated to play a 1:05 p.m. getaway game. Even though the Washington clubhouse opens to the media at 10:30 a.m., there’s virtually no one in the place, as is typically the case when Gary Zimmerman Womens Jersey the locker room opens earlier than most players’ normal wakeup time.

I’d be really shocked if the other starters hadn’t thrown five bullpens, Scherzer said. You could probably go across the league. Most starting pitchers have thrown about four or five bullpens, so I don’t think there’s anything really new about that. This is what starting pitchers do.

Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. But regardless of how many bullpens Joe Starter throws prior to spring training, the fact remains that Scherzer was the only pitcher in Nats camp or likely any camp, for that matter who unleashed even remotely close to 60 pitches his first time out. Later, manager Davey Martinez, in his first year with the Nationals, said simply: Max is unusual.

Foley struck out Webb and Barkley Edinson Volquez Jersey as well as Giants teammate Kristjan Sokoli, with only one total foul ball and eight swinging strikes combined. Linebacker Alec Ogletree beat Foley by lining out to second base, but just putting a ball in fair play against her won a prize for select fans in attendance at Palisades Credit Union Park.

The event brought out some of the Giants’ biggest past and present stars and raised $35,000 for the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund to benefit the fight against childhood cancer.

A former NCAA Division II pitcher at the University of Indianapolis who holds the NCAA record with 30 strikeouts in a game, Foley estimated she was throwing about 70 miles per hour. She said several of the other Giants asked her not to throw too inside on Barkley for fear of injuring the prized asset.

Barkley, who finished No. 4 in the 2017 Heisman Trophy vote and was the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, is a freak athlete on the football field, but Foley’s biggest feat of the night was striking out the slugging Webb.
