Scherzer Delivers Gem, Rushes to Help Wife Deliver Third Child

“It almost comes down to, [in] some of these outings, he finds these new motivations,” catcher Yan Gomes said. “Obviously from the broken nose thing [in 2019], he found a new motivation for that, just came out and dealt, and today after the game we talked a little bit. He was like: ‘Having the baby tonight. Might as well pitch like that, or pitch like a man’ — in the words of Max.”

Major League Baseball, union at odds on whether start of 2021 season should be delayed

Major League Baseball executives and owners, wanting players to be vaccinated before arriving to spring training, would like the 2021 season to be delayed until May, even if it means shortening the season to 140 or fewer games.

The Major League Baseball Players Association, believing it proved a year ago that teams can safely adapt to protocols, wants the season to start on time, playing all 162 games with full pay.

And here we are, with just two months before pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report for spring training, and no one has any idea what will happen.

COVID-19 cases are raging across the country this winter, but the vaccine is starting to be distributed, giving hope that by mid-summer, most everyone will have access to the immunization.

Yet, the issue that could further erode the trust between the two groups is whether owners take the stance that the season should be delayed until every player and staff member gets the vaccine.
