Intergalactic baseball is sadly still not a thing, sigh. But we here at Resting Pitchface can still find ways to bring space into Earth-based baseball, especially when the NL East is a collection of black holes stacked on top of each other; Organic Farmer Jayson Werth may revive farming at the first Jedi temple; and Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, and Koda Glover are lighting it up with some out of this world Ks. Oh, and the concept of the Closer should definitely be shot into space!
It’s been a year of us talking about relievers, things you shouldn’t google, and, apparently, space. Listen in and help us celebrate our show-ni-versary!

Noah Syndergaard’s social media accounts.
The rookies living up to the hype, and then some.
Kershaw, Greinke, Lester, Arrieta. Done, done, done and DONE.
