  1. Do you think Max Scherzer will pitch again in the 2019 World Series?

  2. I have the same neck spasms he has

  3. Love this guy. Glad he's well and he's now a World Series champion! Go MAX!!!

  4. I’m a Phillies fan, so I’m hoping the Astros beat the Nationals. But also it feels bad because Max was so close to getting a championship and couldn’t pitch the most important game of his life

  5. This is what happens when the Pathetic Nats Fans get Political!!! God works in mysterious ways!

  6. Either he was afraid to lose, or Martinez was saving him for a possible Game 7, anyway the Astros will win the series regardless

  7. He's done for the series. If it's as bad as they say no way he pitches. Even if he were able to pitch in game 7 he would be compromised. Definitely not able to throw 100+ pitches and would be down a few ticks in velocity

  8. If he comes back also astros can fight………… overrated

  9. Hope he can make it to the next game and get the ring and he can probably retire after that

  10. Martinez should of pinch hit Sanchez with a runner at 3rd with 1 out.

  11. This guy's got to be really hurt to miss the game of his life in the World Series! Get well for next year!

  12. This is myofascitis in the shoulder. You need acupuncture or some injection to the muscle to relieve pain.

  13. As Astros fans here in Houston we wanted to watch 2 great pitchers go at it, unfortunately that didn’t happen. Max is a tough guy played with broken nose before so it’s obviously painful for him not to be able to pitch.

  14. Nats blew their last realistic opportunity and will forever be known as the chokers who were up 2-0 going home and blew it. They will never have an opportunity like that again. Both Dodgers and Breves will be much better next year and the Nats will be much worse when they lose either Rendon or Strasburg. And unlike the #4 ranked farm Braves and #3 ranked Dodgers the #27 Nats don’t have much young cheap talent coming through the farm to replace Rendon… It’s over, this season AND this era

  15. I warned Nats fans if they tried to ride Strasburg and Scherzer in an attempt to avoid the bullpen that one of them would break down toward the backend of the playoffs.

  16. I bet he didn’t go to a Chiropractor!

  17. I was looking forward to us beating him. Hopefully, we don't get to a game 7 though. I don't want us to face him in that situation.

  18. I’m an Astros fan. I wish him a speedy recovery, and I hope the Nats don’t play him unless he’s truly ready. Some things are bigger than a game. Godspeed, Mad Max 🙏🏼⚾️

  19. I feel bad for him!! Astro's like to play the BEST players/team. So this is not good for anyone.
    I am an Astro's fan …. but we all want him to pitch. I'm guessing only game 6 now?
    Get better Max!! Go Stros!!

  20. Spasms are no joke. I've had them and if he gets what I felt it's like being stabbed quickly multiple times out of the blue. It's shocking. Couldn't imagine pitching with them, just mentally would be hard.


  22. Best ability is availability

  23. You take your chances game 5 to get Max rest and hope to win with your aces in Houston game 6 (Stras) and game 7 (Max).

  24. Here we go looks like MLB is expecting a 7 game so this is a excuse for a top pitcher game 7…

  25. He should pitch later in the game

  26. Go to an acupuncturist my dude. Your team needs you.
