For the record, it is muh-JESS-skee. Like shuh-SHEF-skee. And you might want to learn how to pronounce it, because Gary Majewski is one of those non-roster invitees who has a chance to stick. In three spring training appearances, he has pitched six scoreless innings, and has struck out six while allowing... Read more
