Shoutout: On Friday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Nationals-Diamondbacks, the final score, and Max Scherzer’s total strikeouts in the game. Washington won 17-2, and Scherzer had 7 Ks.

Subscriber Jeff Bernstein (@jnbernstein) had the Nationals winning, and since no one predicted Scherzer striking out seven, Jeff gets the shoutout with his prediction of a perfect game and 22 strikeouts — so “if it (happens), I will have it on record.” We like it. Nice going, Jeff!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
