    On Wednesday, Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer tied an MLB record with 20 strikeouts.  And to make the accomplishment that much sweeter, he did it against his former team, the Detroit Tigers.   Max Scherzer is the 5th player with 20 strikeouts in a game, joining an elite club. pic.twitter.com/98N271VoI3 — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) May 12, 2016 […]

    Bryce Harper Left Team Bus To Give Money To Homeless Woman

    On Sunday, Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper had enough energy left after the game, since the Chicago Cubs walked him a record six times in a game the Nats ultimately lost, 4-3.   .@Bharper3407’s last 11 trips to the plate? ZERO official at-bats: BB, BB, SF, BB, IBB, BB, BB, IBB, HBP, BB, IBB. pic.twitter.com/skaZuwJPxR […]

  • Bryce Harper Homers in Very First At-Bat of 2016 Season (Video)

    Bryce Harper Homers in Very First At-Bat of 2016 Season (Video)

    Bryce Harper loves Opening Day.  And why wouldn’t he?  In his previous three opening day starts with the Washington Nationals, the reigning NL MVP has gone 5-for-12 with three homers. And on Monday, during the Nats’ 2016 opener against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, he added to his impressive opening day totals by socking […]

    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)

    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 […]
