That is right, folks! The stars have aligned so that today, Tsunamy Thursday, the day of the week dedicated to our beloved Dominican starting pitcher, also happened to be the anniversary of the day of his birth. Carlos is twenty-six years old today. He is also set to take on the Cincinnati Reds tonight, and with three games to make up and only eleven to play, the stakes are higher than ever.
On this, his birthday, let us look back at the best and brightest Carlos Martínez moments...
