I've done it before as well.

Tulowitzki did a similar thing last August, I believe, and he still isn't back.

Must have. I remember hearing the ballpark audio of one of his ejections last year for commenting on the umpires ball and strike calls. He walked out calmly and you could clearly hear "Were you out all f*king night?"

Did you see what Scherzer did yesterday? 6 1/3 innings and 15 strikeouts. So he got 15 of his 19 outs on Ks; that's simply amazing.

That's just overpowering. He seems to get more dominant each year.

He threw 111 pitches. If he'd been more efficient he might have broken Kerry Wood's MLB record of 20 Ks. Ironically yesterday was the 20th anniversary of that game too.

Wow, I didn't know that 20 strikeouts had been done four times.

Cards were shut out 6-0 last night. I wasn't expecting to win that game anyway because it was a spot start for a AAA guy filling in for Wainwright who was making a rehab start. And it was a case of STL facing some young pitcher they've never seen before which is always the kiss of death. They only managed 4 hits and three of those were by DeJong.

MLB Central is giving a Vlad Jr. update. He's hitting .398! How long before the Jays bring him up?

Watching the Cardinal game and the announcers just said that there have already been 26 no-hitters taken into the 6th inning or beyond this year.

They seem to be very hesitant on doing fact, but Guerrero seems to be doing his best to change their minds.

This is extremely disappointing. Of all people, he is one I would least expect.

I saw that in a "crawl" at the bottom of the screen of the Cardinal game

Diaz to the DL and Osuna on administrative leave. New scrubs up to replace them.

Here's a pretty good response to the fact that they were supposed to get out of Osuna t-shirts this week. Obviously they couldn't do that anymore, so they are now doing Solarte.

That is a pretty sweet shirt especially given how fast they had to come up with it.

Cards bats were in mothballs again today and they got beat 7-1. It was a team loss though; the defense threw the ball around, Carlos Martinez only gave up 2 ER in 6 innings but he have up crucial hits after the errors, and the offense was in snooze mode again. I really think the team was out of energy after losing Moline, Pham and Norris yet still sweeping the Cubs.

Amazingly, we have yet ANOTHER off day tomorrow as we head out to San Diego for one of the dreaded West Coast swings. That's 4 off days in the last 12 days. Ridiculous scheduling but at least this one makes sense.

I feel your pain. The Jays are already down 5-0 in the 5th and haven't gotten a hit yet. Stroman is again terrible. I wish the bats would heat up, because the pitching sure is bad!

A day off before a West Coast swing makes sense. I really don't like games against the West. They end too late for me.

Yeah same here. These games don't even start until 9pm which is way too late for me considering I usually go to bed around 9:30 since I log in to work at 6 am

Jays haven't got a hit through 8 innings. Anything they do hit well seems to end up in a glove.

Looks like the Jays were no-hit.  What's weird is that's not even in the ESPN MLB page headlines.  Paxton has looked like a better pitcher ever since that eagle tried to land on him.

Pretty coincidental since I just mentioned the quantity of potential no-hitters so far this year just a few hours ago.

Yep, it was a bad day all around for the Jays.

Did you know Paxton was originally drafted by the Jays? I remember some of the circus going on with this.

The Royals are a bad team. They have a .345 winning percentage. Baltimore, specifically Dylan Bundy, made them look REALLY good.

Naturally MLB Central led off with the Paxton no-hitter. They had a cool effect where they showed the eagle landing on him then turning into a "spirit" and entering his shoulder followed by clips of him pitching in last night's game.

Definitely cool.

He's the first Canadian to throw a no-hitter.
