    Did The Taylor Swift Curse Strike The Blue Jays? (Infographic)

    Have you heard about the Taylor Swift curse? Because it’s a real thing. They wrote an article about it in The Atalntic and everything. (It’s not The New Yorker, but still.) According to the experts, every time Taylor Swift has played at a baseball stadium on her 1989 world tour, the team that plays in […]

  • Scherzer Chokes Harper in Dugout, Mocking Papelbon (Video)

    Scherzer Chokes Harper in Dugout, Mocking Papelbon (Video)

    Hey, remember that time Jonathan Papelbon choked Bryce Harper in the dugout during the game? Because Max Scherzer does. And during last night’s utterly meaningless 3-0 win over the Braves, Scherzer had a little #TBT fun by re-enacting the incident. Of course, if Papelbon had been there, Scherzer probably wouldn’t have done it. But Papelbon […]

    Jonathan Papelbon Attacks Bryce Harper in Dugout During Game (Videos)

    Want to understand why the Nationals so badly underachieved this season? Look no further than the Jonathan Papelbon trade. On July 28, the underachieving Nationals were only six games above .500 and just one game in front of the upstart New York Mets. Thus, the front office decided they had to make a move. So […]

    Cespedes Error Turns Bases Loaded Single Into Little League Grand Slam (Video)

    The struggling Nationals started off last week with two brutal late-innings losses to the Cardinals. However, after that they turned things around, reeling off five straight wins and narrowing the gap in the NL East to just four games heading into a crucial three-game set against the Mets this week. Monday’s series opener? That proved […]

    Bryce Harper Hits Most Patriotic Home Run Ever (Video)

    Yesterday, on the Fourth of July, the United States celebrated it’s 239th birthday.  And while I’m not so sure who was responsible for the most patriotic home run from the first 238 years of America’s existence, I do know for sure that after 239 years, that achievement now belongs to Bryce Harper, who hit a […]

    Bryce Harper has been killing it this season.  Through the first two months of his 2015 campaign, the 22-year-old outfielder currently has a slash line of .329/.470/.718 to go along with 18 homers and 44 RBIs. With numbers like that, no one if going to question Harper’s pregame antics or his mental focus.  That leaves […]

  • Bryce Harper Ejection By Umpire Marvin Hudson Is a Joke (Video)

    Bryce Harper Ejection By Umpire Marvin Hudson Is a Joke (Video)

    If anyone can explain the reasoning behind this Bryce Harper ejection, please do fill me in, because I still can’t figure it out. During the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday’s game between the Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees, Harper took a pitch that was well below his knees, but it was […]

    The Nationals Presidents’ Race Featured a Vicious Bunny (Video)

    If you’re a fan of awesome things, you’ll probably want to stick around for this. The Nationals, situated in the capital of the United States, have long conducted a race of mascots (I guess) dressed up as former presidents. Cute enough. However, this year they introduced a foreign body into the race, and all hell […]

  • Watch Stephen Strasburg vs Bryce Harper For The First Time Ever (Video)

    Watch Stephen Strasburg vs Bryce Harper For The First Time Ever (Video)

    Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg are probably the two most highly-touted MLB draft picks of the past decade, but because both of these first-overall selections were taken by the Washington Nationals (Strasburg in ’09 and Harper in ’10), and they’ve remained with the Nats their entire careers, we’ve never had the privilege of seeing them face […]
