Doug Fister

I’m a little late in publishing this post – I was so busy all day getting details finished for my new business venture UpCountry Artworks – I’ll have more information on it later but since this is a baseball blog, let’s just stick to baseball, right?!

He asked who was the better pitcher – or more like who would you rather have if your team was looking for a starting pitcher next year? Of course guys like Johnny Cueto of the Cincinnati Reds and Jordan Zimmermann of the Nationals will also be free agents next season but between Samardzija and Fister was the question posed. Gut reaction on my part? Fister easy. […]

Doug Fister: One of baseball’s most underrated pitchers

Each Mondy we’ve been bringing you the top hitting and pitching performances of the week, both individual and team accomplishments. We’ve now reached the final week of the season. A week where we had to say goodbye to undoubtedly one of, if not the, most universally beloved players in the history of the game, a week where games were crucial for teams still vying for a playoff bid and a week where a strange coincidence ended in a another no-hitter.
