Breaking down Bryce Harper's first 162 games

A year ago today, the Washington Nationals called Bryce Harper up to the big leagues, so he officially has one full season of Major League Baseball under his belt. One of the coolest little known features of the site is a split called “Past Calendar Year”, which allows you to see how a player has done in the last 365 days, giving you a rolling one year look at a player’s most...

Gio Gonzalez's collection of Nats starting rotation bobbleheads

Heck of a start by Gio Gonzalez last night against the Reds, no? Meanwhile, Gio posted the photo above (Photo via giog47 on Instagram) of his collection of Nats starting rotation bobbleheads in his locker at Nationals Park a few days ago: Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, and Gio Gonzalez. Anybody missing? "All I'm missing is Ross and Haren

Nats fans sacrificed a rubber chicken at Nationals Park today...

In an attempt to help the Nationals break out of their April doldrums, Nationals fan Hugh Kaufman led a ritual sacrifice of a rubber chicken outside the center field gate at Nationals Park at high noon before Thursday night's Nats-Reds game. Apparently sage was also burned at Jayson Werth's behest. Well, at least in the early stages of Thursday night's game, it seems...

Nationals reliever Ryan Mattheus redefines the rally cap (GIF)

Washington Nationals relief pitcher Ryan Mattheus created a unique rally cap in the bullpen during Wednesday's afternoon game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals were down early as the Cards scored three runs in the first inning. Mattheus created his unique look by flipping his cap inside out and attaching Gatorade cups to his ears in the middle of a sixth...

The Bryce Harper Monster Bomb off Bunny Arroyo that wrecked by gambling account

May 7th, 2009: I tried to be sneaky tonight by taking a prop bet that Bryce Harper would NOT homer off Bronson Arroyo. You figure that Arroyo is a veteran pitcher who should know better than to pitch to the one hitter in the Nationals cold lineup who can hurt you. What resulted was one of the longest home runs that Bryce Harper has ever hit. After the ball landed on the centerfield...

Nationals Give New Sideline Reporter, Julie Alexandria, Gatorade Shower First Two Nights on Job (Video)

Julie Alexandria‘s first two night on the job covering the Nationals for MASN have been wet ones. No, rain hasn’t been on the forecast, but Gatorade has. Alexandria has had the unfortunate luck to cover back to back one-hitters at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. She happened to be standing next to Gio Gonzalez when he received his Gatorade shower after a one-hitter on Thursday...

Nationals give reporter Gatorade bath after game

The Washington Nationals used a sterling performance from Gio Gonzalez and some offensive activity to defeat Cincinnati 8-1 on Thursday night. After the game new MASN reporter Julie Alexandria got welcomed to the sidelines with a Gatorade shower while interviewing Gonzalez. (H/T Nats Inquirer) To earn the shower Gonzalez went 8 innings allowing one run. Here are some screenshots...

MASN Reporter Gets An Unexpected Gatorade Shower Two Days In a Row

Following the Washington Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 on Thursday night, sideline reporter Julie Alexandria took a very unexpected Gatorade shower courtesy of a celebration bucket meant for Gio Gonzalez.  Julie was working her very first game for MASN, and she handled the situation like a seasoned veteran. Gio was absolutely deserving of his portion of the Gatorade...

Can Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper break Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs in 2013?

With seven dingers in 74 appearances at the plate, Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper seems destined to honestly challenge Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs. Technically, Mark McGwire (70) and Sammy Sosa (66) in 1998 and Barry Bonds (73) in 2001 already surpassed Maris’ mark. However, considering the trio of McGwire, Sosa and Bonds used enough performance...

Nationals' Zimmermann one-hits Reds

Jordan Zimmermann was terrific in his second complete game of the season and the Washington Nationals limited the Cincinnati Reds to one hit for the second straight game in a 1-0 victory on Friday night. Zimmermann (4-1) struck out four and walked one while improving to 3-0 with a 1.36 ERA in five career games against Cincinnati. The right-hander needed only 91 pitches to record...

I’m in Dead Last Place – An Ode to Stephen Strasburg

Stephen Strasburg is killing me. Seriously. He is 1 and 4. I traded Ryan Braun for him and Josh Hamilton (another sore subject for me). Man, can I pick ‘em? I guarantee if anyone else had him in my league, he would be 4 and 1 right now. For everyone who currently has Strasburg on his or her team, I’m sorry. This start is atrocious. It’s my fault. Need I bring up Joey Votto...

New Nats reporter gets another Gatorade bath

Thursday was the first day of a brand new gig for MASN reporter Julie Alexandria. She received a Gatorade dousing that was meant for Washington Nationals (and former White Sox super-prospect) Gio Gonzalez. The Nationals’ blanked the Cincinnati Reds last night, with Jordan Zimmermann’s performance worthy of a potential Gatorade bath. However as you can see in the video below,...

Gio Spins A Gem, Nats Win 8-1

The Nationals had lost four straight games entering this Reds series, and the offense had been deplorable. The entire 25-man roster decided today was going to be the end of that, as they put a hurting on the Reds in all aspects of their play in the 8-1 victory. Gio Gonzalez got things started on the right note, and he never let up for the rest of his outing. He was perfect through...

Trout vs. Harper: Who ya got?

The debate began one year ago Sunday, only we didn't know it at the time. The Angels were off to a confounding, inconsistent start when Mike Trout ascended from Triple-A Salt Lake for his season debut on the afternoon of April 28, 2012. That night, Bryce Harper made his major league debut at Dodger Stadium amid hype worthy of the Hollywood setting. They've entertained us...

Bad-rroyo debuts in Reds 8-1 loss against the Nationals

Bronson Arroyo waits for a new ball after Bryce Harper lost one in the seats.It took until the fifth start of the 2013 season, but Bronson Arroyo’s evil, incompetent twin Badrroyo finally made his first appearance. Arroyo pitched six innings, allowing nine hits, six runs–five earned, while striking out two. It was a bad performance that the Reds’ offense had no hope of overcoming...
