“DFA that pathetic ball boy” “Well he’s unemployed starting Tmr”

Something very strange and unexpected happened when Max Scherzer was about to throw during last night’s game against the Atlanta Braves. As he was about to throw the ball, one of the New York Mets ball boys ran across the goal and interrupted the throw.

As just about every MLB fan knows, Scherzer is one of the craziest players in the league. He doesn’t like anything that disrupts his release rate, and the ball guy definitely did.


@JomboyMedia The BB will be working at Dunkin Donuts tomorrow afternoon.

As soon as Major League Baseball fans saw this happen, they immediately speculated as to what will happen to the ballboy.


@JomboyMedia Okay, go ahead. It is not a big thing. I’m not a Scherzer fan here anyway. I wish I had been halfway there before stopping and snapping a tendon. guys a thug

Some were confused if this is a hindrance or not. Since no one was on the base paths, this does not count as an obstacle. However, it could have been ruled an illegal pitch, since Scherzer didn’t follow through on his move. Since the ball boy was an outside factor, it is likely that the umpire simply ruled that there was no pitch.


@JomboyMedia Obviously they resist, but it’s the Mets, so they don’t call him


@SirIrate @JomboyMedia A balk is an attempt to trick the runner. The bases are empty, it is not a balk.

This didn’t stop Scherzer from throwing a great game last night. Scherzer kept the Atlanta Braves scoreless through seven innings pitched, striking out 11. He allowed just four hits while earning his eighth win on the mound this year.


@JomboyMedia Dammit! Are the Mets playing the bad news Braves this game?

Although he suffered injuries midway through the year, Max Scherzer has been nothing short of dominant this season. He has really helped the Mets pitching rotation become one of the best in the MLB.

Max Scherzer is still an elite pitcher, even at 38 years old

Just 11 days ago was Max Scherzer’s 38th birthday, and he’s still as good as ever. Through 15 starts with the Mets this season, Scherzer is 8-2 with just a 1.98 ERA and a ridiculously low 0.899 WHIP. He also has 120 strikeouts in 95.2 innings pitched this season. If an injury hadn’t sidelined him for two months, he’d be in the conversation for the NL Cy Young Award.

He has been part of an elite Mets team this season. The New York Mets currently have a 69-39 record, which leads the NL East. They are 5.5 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves and appear confident for this year’s playoffs. If the Mets can keep it up, they could be this year’s world champions.
