Clayton Kershaw’s Contribution to Bryce Harper’s Slump

Before homering last night in the first inning of a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers, Bryce Harper‘s OPS had briefly fallen all the way below .900. And while that might seem like occasion to sound the alarms, let’s get one thing straight: Bryce Harper’s season numbers are still great.

Is Bryce Harper OK?

I had the pleasure of being in San Diego this weekend for the Nationals’ series with the Padres. In the midst of Saturday night’s game, though, my enjoyment of the beautiful weather, scenic ballpark and momentary Nationals’ lead was shattered by a gentleman sitting behind me in a Padres jersey. This gentleman, you see, was talking smack about Bryce Harper. Now, I enjoy good...

To be clear, Bryan Harper earned his Triple-A promotion

WASHINGTON — Nationals left-handed prospect Bryan Harper was promoted to Syracuse, Washington’s Class-AAA affiliate, last week. That promotion, General Manager Mike Rizzo assures, had nothing to do with the name on the back of his jersey. “Yeah, it would be a nice story to play with his brother,” Rizzo told The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The FAn. “But he, like everyone else...

Jayson Werth has funny new nickname for Papelbon

Jayson Werth and the Washington Nationals seem to have bestowed an extremely fitting nickname upon Jonathan Papelbon. Werth was interviewed on the field after he delivered a walkoff two-run single to beat the Phillies on Sunday, and he made an apparent reference to Papelbon – using a very unique nickname. “Well, I knew I was in trouble when I saw The Strangler coming at me...

Bryce Harper hits upper-deck home run

Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper has a new look after struggling at the plate in recent weeks. The beard is gone and he got a haircut for a more sleek and clean look. Furthermore, he elected to go without his batting gloves, and judging by what happened in Thursday’s game, it helped. With the Nationals trailing the Cardinals 1-0 in the sixth inning, Harper came to the...
