Strong-as-hell swimming champion Katie Ledecky is from Washington D.C., and the Nationals invited her to come throw the first pitch tonight before their game against the Orioles. She arrived, as well she should, decked out in all five of her recently-acquired Olympic medals. Thankfully, Bryce Harper was kind enough to…
If you throw that fastball as straight as an arrow and lay it right over the middle of the plate, you’re liable to watch it fly all the way out of the ballpark. Bud Norris did just that against Bryce Harper, who proceeded to jerk a big dong to the third deck.
Look, Bryce Harper has been sort of grumpy fella lately, on account of everyone is walking him and pitching around him like he’s Babe Ruth or something. Not so much tonight. Mike Leake hung a pitch against Harper this evening so he sent it to the third deck.
The last time Matt Harvey and Stephen Strasburg faced off in Queens, fans spent much of the night chanting “Harvey’s better!” Last night, a rain of boos.
MLB has fined and suspended Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper for one game for “his actions” after he was ejected in Monday’s game against the Tigers. Harper will appeal.
Moments after being ejected by umpire Brian Knight for arguing balls and strikes, Nationals slugger Bryce Harper got some words of revenge while celebrating Clint Robinson’s walk-off homer. Make baseball fun again!
Bryce Harper hasn’t logged an official at-bat in his last 11 plate appearances. He was walked a grand total of 13 times during a four-game series against the Cubs, and set an MLB record by reaching base seven times in Sunday’s game without recording an at-bat: He was walked three times, intentionally walked three…
With a full count on Bryce Harper in Sunday’s game, Phillies pitcher Jeanmar Gomez threw a sinker over the plate. The Nats outfielder put that pitch straight into the damn toilet.
Come on, it’s Bryce Harper. It shouldn’t take you more than 10 seconds to figure this one out.
Mmmm. Mmmmm. Love the taste of my glove. MMMM.
Bryce Harper’s 2016 season is off to a roaring start. He crushed a dinger in his first at-bat today, then continued his crusade on baseball’s stodgy unwritten rules with a timely (except for the trucker hat part) fashion choice.
ESPN’s Tim Keown has a profile of Nationals superstar Bryce Harper out today, and it contains a lengthy quote from Harper that you should print out and frame.
I don’t work out, but I still feel comfortable saying that this looks like a pretty dumb way to exercise:
If there’s one thing you can say for Jonathan Papelbon, it’s that he just does not give a shit about potentially making things awkward at his workplace.
NL MVP Bryce Harper went on SportsCenter to take some questions from Scott Van Pelt, and when answering expressed a reluctance to become a meme. Or was that a may may? A meh meh? No matter how you spell his pronunciation, it had the ironic effect of turning Harper into, yup, a meme.
The Washington Nationals, the saddest and most dysfunctional team in the league, are somehow still playing baseball games. I kind of assumed that everyone had already packed up their shit and gone home for the winter, but nope! They’re still out there, pitchin’ and hittin’ and catchin’. At least Max Scherzer and Bryce…
This teaser tweet is insane enough:
Over the past year, our Dave McKenna has reported on a number of sordid scandals surrounding former NBA All-Star and current Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, culminating in this painful account from a woman who has accused Johnson of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager. Even by the standards of a politician,…
Since MLB isn’t equipped to punish a player choking out his own teammate in the dugout, the Nationals gave a four-game suspension to fuming goblin Jonathan Papelbon for attacking Bryce Harper during Sunday’s game.
