Week 19

FANFOOD goes 4 for 4  

Season .662 (47 for 71)


1. Doug Fister



Doug Fister twirled a gem but failed to factor into the decision Sunday against the Pirates. The right-hander permitted two unearned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings of work. Over his last four starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Fister has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 2.20 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP over 18 starts (118 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Friday at home against San Francisco. In his other start of the week, Doug turned in a fantastic start on Tuesday. against the Mets. Fister tossed seven scoreless innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the appearance. He gave up seven hits. Fister wasn’t his usual self during the outing, relying more on flyball outs against New York. Only five outs were classified as ground balls. Despite that, he was successful during the outing.

2. Jonathon Niese


Jonathon Niese earned a win Saturday, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings and striking out six-plus in his team’s 7-3 victory over the Cubs. Niese (7-8) gave up a solo home run in the fifth inning and another with no outs in the top of the seventh, then followed up the second home run with four straight singles to bring the second run home and end his night. Niese owns a 3.50 ERA and 102:39 K:BB ratio in 141 1/3 innings. He’s scheduled to face the Dodgers Friday. In his other start of the week Mets left-hander Jonathon Niese did something Monday afternoon that he had not done in six weeks – he won a game. Niese must love Pennsylvania – his last victory came in Pittsburgh and his most recent in Philadelphia. He held the Phillies to two earned runs on five hits in seven innings with three walks and six strikeouts. His outing was marred only by a two-run homer off the bat of Darin Ruf.

Bourbon Pickles




4-5 pounds of pickling cucumbers, sliced ¼” thick
2 tablespoons fine grain sea salt
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups water, filtered
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
12 ounces bourbon
6 cloves garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons pickling spices
2 tablespoons mustard seeds
6 heads fresh dill
chile flakes (optional)
6 grape leaves


In a canning pot, fill half way with filtered/distilled water and boil
Add jars and lids into the water, on their sides, completely submerged in the water and boil for several minutes
Place 2 cups of water with vinegars and salt into a large saucepan and boil.
Remove the jars from the water and place in each pint jar 2 ounces of bourbon, 1 grape leaf, 1 clove of garlic, 1 head of dill, 1 teaspoon each of mustard seeds and pickling spices, and a touch of chile flakes.
Pack the cucumber slices into each jar tightly, leaving about half an inch at the top.
CAREFULLY add the vinegar mixture until it just covers the cucumbers, then place the top on each jar.
Place the jars, upright, in boiling water in a canning pot so that the water is at least halfway up the sides of the jars but not covering the jars.
Return the water to a boil and continue boiling for 10 minutes.
Remove the jars and let them cool; the jars should keep for up to a year.
