Found May 23, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
Hats off to the Fox Sports Kansas City crew. They may have pulled off the worst broadcast graphic of all-time during Thursday's Royals-Angels game.There are a couple of screwups with the screenshot seen above. First, the crew somehow manages to produce wrong last names for the likes of Bryce HARPER and Matt HARVEY, arguably two of the sport's biggest young stars.Second, the team logos are all misplaced, and in fact, all but one of them isn't relevant to the graphic at all.Epic fail, guys. I think an intern is taking the axe after this one.Via Eye on Baseball

Bryce Harper on that triple over his head: "I don’t want to hit the frickin’ wall full-on."

So what happened on that deep fly ball by Gregor Blanco that went over Bryce Harper's head in the 9th inning that turned into a game-tying triple? Harper appeared to flinch as he approached the wall and misplayed the ball (see video here). Turns out Harper was thinking about running into another wall: "I don’t want to hit the frickin’ wall full-on. Of course...

Another Sort-Of First for Bryce Harper

Even when I’m not trying to pay attention to Bryce Harper, he finds a way to capture my focus. Last night, I was seeing off a friend on the east side of Portland, and if I’d been thinking about any sport, it was hockey, since these are the days of the NHL playoffs. A TV was being projected onto one of the walls of the bar, and at first it was showing a minor-league hockey game...

Harper ripped by teammate after loss

Nationals reliever Rafael Soriano questioned Bryce Harper's defensive positioning on a game-tying triple that tied the game in the ninth inning that ultimately led to a loss.

The Washington Nationals Are Wearing Shirts With Their Pitching Coach’s Playgirl Photo On Them

Sure many women flock to Bryce Harper as the heartthrob of the Washington Nationals, but it’s actually their pitching coach, Steve McCatty who sends all the ladies into a tizzy. All the female fervor over McCatty reached it’s hunky pinnacle in 1984 when he was featured in a Playgirl pictorial. Next stop Beefcake City. This tantalizing photo has all of the early 80′s sexuality...

Rafael Soriano Bashes Teammate Bryce Harper For Miscue

One of three things happens when a good team starts to lose. 1. The team rallies behind a leader who portrays a greater poise. 2. The manager makes minor adjustments in the lineup to make sure the team is running on all cylinders. 3. Frustration sets in and fingers start to be pointed, in either the direction of another player or at the player himself. The latter took place after...

Did The Royals Broadcast Have The Worst Graphic Fail Of All-Time?

Now we completely expect the hapless Kansas City Royals to make blunders on the field, but we expect a little bit of professionalism during their broadcast. Fox Sports Kansas City made one of the most egregious and blatant errors of sports graphics of all-time on Thursday night. During the Royals and Los Angeles Angels game the broadcast team asked the question; “Which Young Player...

The Second Half Push: Harvey, Montero, Wheeler, and the Elusive .500

When PECOTA released their preseason major league projections earlier this year, there weren’t many surprises to be found in the National League East: The Washington Nationals were projected to once again top the National League East with 88-wins while the Atlanta Braves trailed them in second place with 82-wins. The surprise team in the group wasn’t the cream of the east, but...

All Hail Mike Trout

We all know who Bryce Harper is – the guy will literally run into a wall for attention and then blame it on playing stupid hard.  And we all know that Miguel Cabrera is crushing high-AAA pitching on a daily basis.  There is another guy, though, that should be garnering way more attention than he currently is – Mike Trout. Last night, Mike Trout did his best pre-Kim Basinger...

The Zack Wheeler hype will end up being his downfall

With 2013 being touted as a rebuilding year for the Mets, most fans are excited to see the debut of prospects like Travis d’Arnuad and Zack Wheeler. It is now May and the talk of these prospects is heating up. d’Arnuad is out with a broken foot and is due back soon while Wheeler just missed a start due to soreness in his neck. The team decided to play it safe with their top...

Johnson says no shave until Nats start hitting

Davey Johnson says he's giving up his razor until the Washington Nationals find their bats. The manager apologized for his scraggly appearance before Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, but he said it had a purpose. ''If my facial hair looks bad,'' he said, ''I decided I wouldn't shave until we started hitting.'' The Nationals...

Mets Swept After Ike Davis Blunder Ignites 7-4 Reds Win

Ike Davis’ troubles at the plate and in the field continued as he botched two plays at first, one in which opened the door to the Reds’ three-run ninth inning in Wednesday’s 7-4 loss. With the Mets being swept, they fell to a season-high ten games below .500. Matt Harvey did not have a great start, but came away with another no-decision. ON THE MOUND: Harvey gave up four...
