PSA Comments of the Day 1/19/15: Good luck, NL East

Max Scherzer is heading to the Nationals. He will not be signing with the Yankees. Hopefully the Empire will strike back with a trade of some sorts. Pitchers and catchers report in 31 days.

All too easy

Things certainly happened yesterday in the wide wide world of sports. The Seattle Seahawks came from behind and beat the Green Bay Packers while the New England Patriots crushed the Indianapolis Colts. Both teams will play each other in the Super Bowl (or Superb Owl) on February 1st. In the more important sport of baseball, the ball finally dropped on where Max Scherzer is signing. He will not be signing with the Yankees, but rather with the Nationals. Good luck with that, NL East.

Comments of the Day

I think LTL's answer was so good that most people didn't feel the need to participate any further with that question, since he had already won.

Either Ledee is joking/trolling, or he is the real life Nunezing that Matt F and I make up.

Nothing more to be said here.

It will totally be "Gregorius is glorious."

DanteAmore is killing it with the Sterling Home Run Puns.

Yikes indeed. Glad our community thought that was uncalled for.

Yes, what Harlan said. If this were not a thing, someone should definitely be fired.

Come on, Yankees. Beat that shift like it owes you money!

GIF of the Day

This is getting depressing.

Honorable Mod Mention

Well Harlan had a lot of Blue'd posts yesterday, so he wins!

Fun Questions
  • If the Nationals were open to trading one of their starters to us, now that they signed Scherzer, which one would you want?
  • If you had a spaceship in Star Wars, what would you name it?
Song of the Day

The Imperial March by John Williams

It's still an absolute travesty that this song is used to introduce the opposing players, instead of our players. If we are to be the Evil Empire, then we should absolutely embrace it. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. What are your thoughts on Max Scherzer going to the Nationals? How do you think it will affect other teams in the NL East?

You have failed me for the last time, Commander.
