The "Absolutely Epic" Nationals Are The Most Exciting Team In Baseball

Washington Nationals fans should stop, take a deep breath, and realize just how good they've got it. In the history of MLB there haven't been many better or more exciting stretches than the Nats' last week-plus: nine straight wins, six of them by a single run, and four of the last five, including last night's,… » 8/21/14 9:25am 8/21/14 9:25am

Matt Williams Snaps At Reporters Over Talk Of Bryce Harper Demotion

On the radio Wednesday morning, Nationals manager Matt Williams was thrown a hypothetical question about the struggling Bryce Harper, and whether he thought a stint in the minors could help him. It was sort of a tossed-off question, one thoroughly and unequivocally answered by Williams. But he really, really doesn't… » 8/07/14 10:10am 8/07/14 10:10am

Bryce Harper Hits The DL After Sliding Head-First

Perhaps the only consolation for Bryce Harper after a shitty week on the basepaths is that it'll be a while before he has to run them again. The Nationals placed Harper on the disabled list with a thumb injury suffered while sliding head-first, and the team fears he could be out a lot longer than 15 days. » 4/28/14 10:45am 4/28/14 10:45am

Bryce "Nothing But Hustle" Harper Benched For Lack Of Hustle

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was benched in yesterday's game against the Cardinals; manager Matt Williams said Harper's early exit came from a lack of hustle. The decision isn't a big deal, but it's amusing if you look at the Nationals' latest program, which advertises Harper on the cover, along with… » 4/20/14 12:00pm 4/20/14 12:00pm

Bryce Harper Homers In First At-Bat Off The DL

The Wall Is In Bryce Harper's Head

After Bryce Harper clumsily ran face-first into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium, we were assured—by Harper himself and others—that the incident would not prevent Harper from "playing hard" in the future. Those assurances may have been given a bit hastily. » 5/22/13 12:38pm 5/22/13 12:38pm

Again: Bryce Harper's Misplay Was A Blooper, Not An Act Of Heroism

On the wide spectrum of people running face first into walls, Bryce Harper's crash the other night probably fell somewhere between Gus Frerotte and Larry, Curly, and Moe Howard. Harper is an enormously entertaining player who will do many amazing, effortful things in what we hope will be a very long career. That… » 5/15/13 11:55am 5/15/13 11:55am

The Nats Are Still Pretending Bryce Harper Doesn't Have A Concussion

After Bryce Harper ran full-speed into the Dodger Stadium wall on Monday, he "had no idea where he was." He was nauseous all day yesterday, and couldn't play. He's expected to miss tonight's game as well. But he's totally fine, the Nationals would like to assure everyone. Just a little sore. » 5/15/13 9:11am 5/15/13 9:11am

Bryce Harper Wasn't Playing Hard Last Night, He Was Playing Dumb

The fact that Bryce Harper ran face-first into a wall last night is not a laughing matter. It was a scary moment that Harper came away from with a seriously rung bell, a gash under his chin, and a jammed shoulder. We are not going to laugh at Bryce Harper's injury. » 5/14/13 1:40pm 5/14/13 1:40pm
