I swear, as I sit here in the dead of night next to the Pacific Ocean that I have been racking my brain for hours trying to find a story that doesn’t involve A-Rod or Johnny Manziel.

The biggest problem with last night’s ******** “brawl” was the Nats clearly have lost focus. Maybe lost focus is putting it mildly, because based on a 54-59 season that has the team 14.5 games back in early August, it’s arguable the team lacked focus from the beginning. But back to last night. Harper hit a bomb off Braves starter Julio Teheran, and Harper took a few seconds...
