Superagent Scott Boras held court Wednesday at the annual MLB Winter Meetings and indicated any discussions concerning an extension for client Bryce Harper will have to be initiated by the Washington Nationals.

What should the Mets do with Matt Harvey?

In 2012, the Washington Nationals were not shy about their intention of shutting down their star ace, Stephen Strasburg, once he hit roughly 160 innings pitched.
