The Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 97 percent effective, was placed on “pause” due to “adverse side effects.” The New York Liberty, nine percent effective after going 2-20 last season, will resume giving their fans “adverse side effects” on May 14.
That’s a No-No. The unwritten rule that says never take a pitcher coming off a no hitter. Joe Musgrove (2-0, ERA 0.00) has not permitted a run over 15 innings this year, including the first ever no-no in the illustrious history of the Padres. Talk about a turnaround. Musgrove was a career 29-38 before donning the Padres’ brown & gold. San Diego is still in the Steel City. The Pirates counter with Tyler Anderson (0-2, ERA 5.23), who faced the Cubs twice, allowing six runs over 10 innings. Only a matter of time before Musgrove gives up a run. Only a matter of time before the Padres get to Anderson. 20 units on the Padres.
