Nice recollection. When I was 8 or 9 my parents sometimes gave me the choice of watching the Tiger game with my dad and having a small cup of Strohs beer in a little tin juice cup with him, or going outside and playing with my friends. I always chose the Tiger game and the small tin cup of Strohs maybe just a couple ounces. My mom said I couldn't go out and play with my friends after that, because somebody might smell beer on my breath and call the police.
Ditto on the recollection. Good story.

Child of subversives, eh? Figures.

I think he knew the 8th was his last inning, so he gave it all he had. Same thing as last year in the ALCS.

I wish someone would just ask him point blank. Did you tell Brad you were done after the 8th inning? He might not throw his manager under the bus but if he didn't answer it with a straight yes, you'd know for sure

Scherzer was interviewed after the game and, in part, said, "We’re not going to sit here and second-guess the manager.”

To me, it sounds like it was the manager's decision to remove him from the game.

I agree with this, but I think he knew that it was his last inning because he knew that regardless of how he looked, Ausmus was putting in Nathan for the 9th

That sounds accurate. One thing I definitely don't believe is that he begged out of the game because he's not competitive or lacks guts.
