In today’s newsletter we witness the return of Max Scherzer, we likewise bear witness to a new kind of walkoff win, a pitcher gets a contract extension and shoves on the same weekend, a notable young player gets handed a PED suspension, and the Yankees have a new injury and a new player.

In Other Stuff we check in with the Calcaterra family group chat, we look at what happened in the latest planet-killer asteroid war games, we try to predict what will happen when grocery stores get an even greater ability to gouge you than they already have, and we talk about why writers write and why AI is anathema to that.

Let’s go.
