Found April 04, 2013 on Mr. Irrelevant:
The Nats took care of business today, sweeping the Marlins on the strength of yet another strong start, scoreless relief and the longball. That’s three wins in a row to start the season, and, thankfully, they didn’t lose baseball’s most exciting player to a broken jaw either (via DC Sports Nexus): Now, I’m not sure how bad that looks to you, because the GIF is clipped pretty short and the quality’s not so good. But that was Harper coming in full speed and flying into home, trying to score from first on a double. That was also Miami catcher Rob Brantly, leaning in with a firm elbow to the face. Harper did score, by the way, and walked it off. Somehow.

Bryce Harper's brother has amazing mustache

It's pretty safe to say that Bryce Harper is a breakout star, right?  I mean, the Washington Nationals wunderkind broke out in a huge way last season and, so far this season, doesn't appear to want to quit. But, it's his older brother Bryan, a pitcher with the Nats Class A affiliate Hagerstown, that's turning heads...but it has nothing to do with his pitching skills...

Above is a photo of Bryce Harper’s family: dad Ron, mom Sherri, sister Brittany and big brother Bryan). This nice photo was taken in 2009 in Las Vegas. Since then, both brothers have moved on to playing higher level baseball: Bryce as a young phenom with the Washington Nationals (who has started off this young season in superstar fashion) and brother Bryan with Washington’s Single...

Werth on Harper's home plate collision: "The way he reacted, I thought he got shot. I wanted to make sure the little guy was all right"

So Bryce Harper had a fairly nasty collision with Marlins catcher Rob Brantly in the first inning on Thursday in the process of scoring on a double by Ryan Zimmerman  (video here). Screen cap of the aftermath above, via MASN. It sort of looked like Brantly threw an elbow to Harper's chin: Anyway, a day after Gio Gonzalez delivered an early candidate for quote of the...

Bryce Harper attended private pre-screening of '42' at White House

Bryce Harper may or may not be ready to be the MVP for the Washington Nationals, but one thing is certain: He's already living the MVP lifestyle.  Fresh off of tearing up Spring Training and homering not once but twice on Opening Day, a 2-0 Nats victory, Harper was on the guest list for a pre-screening of '42' at the White House on Tuesday night, hosted by Mrs. Michelle...

Bryce Harper continues living the good life, attends private screening of ’42′ at White House

For Nats phenom Bryce Harper, life is sweet. He’s young, rich, adored by millions, and, best of all, has a lifetime supply of burritos from Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Harper’s latest adventure living the good life had him at the White...

Nationals-Reds Preview

Bryce Harper is off to a hot start as he heads to a ballpark he fared poorly in last season against a pitcher he has never faced.

Harper and Trout (like Magic and Larry)

Think back 10 years. What do you remember about the MLB? I remember stars all over the place. Bonds, Sosa, McGwire, Nomar, Clemens, and A-Rod just to name a few. Albert Pujols was beginning his 3rd season. Miguel Cabrera was about to splash on the scene as a skinny leftfielder for the Marlins. But just a few years later, something happened and these stars were gone. Bonds, Sosa,...

Washington Nationals Start Season with Back to Back Shut Outs

If the first two games of the 2013 season are any indication, it’s going to be a long summer for hitters coming up against the Washington Nationals pitching.  The Nats have yet to give up a run, staring the season with back-to-back shut outs over the Miami Marlins. They are only the 13th team in league history, and the first since 2002 when the Arizona Diamondbacks did it, to...
