    Buster Olney

  7. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...
