“He’s got a cannon.” (Ian Desmond, via Washington Post, 5/2/2012)
Correction: laser cannon!
So what if Bryce Harper's home debut for the Nationals didn't nearly live up to Stephen Strasburg's home debut? Harper may have gone 0-3 with a K, but he still provided a momentary thrill to the (half-full/half-empty) Nationals Park crowd with an absurd throw...
Nationals third base coach Bo Porter walked off the mound, dripping with sweat, beaming.
He had just thrown batting practice to Bryce Harper.
Nationals manager Davey Johnson stood in foul territory as Porter approached, nodding and smiling. He, too, experiences joy watching Harper take BP.
"The beauty of him is that he hits the ball hard to all fields," Johnson says...
In the latest edition of "look what Bryce Harper did last night", Harper's sixth inning RBI double made a winner out of Ross Detwiler and the Nats last night (video here). Ho hum. Up above, Harper's postgame interview (video via CSNWashington.com).
"I’m going to try to come up as clutch as I can in those situations. I love...
The Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 last night to ensure their seventh series win of the year. Despite a five game losing streak occuring in their last seven games, the team has still only lost one series all season, and that was to the first place Los Angeles Dodgers. They remain 1.5 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves for first place in the National League...
Letting people know your Twitter handle seems to be the status quo in any field of entertainment now-a-days. So when Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen placed his Twitter handle on his glove, I was not surprised. Hey, it’s not like Storen is a household name right? I give the dude props for trying to gain
Yes, there's been some trouble spelling ''Nationals'' correctly in the past. This was no typo, though.
Above the center field scoreboard, where the team's stadium name normally appears, a temporary red banner with capital white letters proclaimed the site ''NATITUDE PARK'' for Friday night's game between Washington and the Philadelphia...
"It's nice not hearing boos and whatnot." (Bryce Harper, via CSN Washington.com video, 5/1/2012)
D-backs 5, Nationals 1: Well, at least they scored a run. But Bryce might want to head back down to the Mall and recruit some of his softball buddies for offensive help?

Befriend the Nats...
19-year old phenom Bryce Harper is feeling mighty comfortable is is new Washington Nationals gear these days. Since being selected with the first pick of the 2010 MLB Draft, we all knew that Harper was going to be in the big leagues in a hurry, but the start that he’s put together in his first 5 games has been amazing. He’s currently batting .375 with 0 HR’s and 3 RBI and has...
After his interesting debut in Los Angeles, Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper had a day off and decided to play some softball with some random folks in D.C.
The game broke out near the Washington Monument and here is one of Bryce's at-bats:

Arizona was within one out of its fourth straight win before J.J. Putz blew his second save of the season.
Leading 4-3 in the ninth inning Wednesday night, Putz got two outs after Bryce Harper's leadoff double. The Diamondbacks closer then gave up a game-ending homer to Ian Desmond that gave the Nationals a 5-4 win.
"It won't be the last time it happens to us this...
The Washington Nationals needed every single out they had to end their five-game losing streak last night. It wasn’t pretty to watch, but they finally scraped one out to get back in the win column. The Nats will look to make it two in a row tonight in the rubber match against Arizona, but they will be going up against a right-hander that was one of the best pitchers in the National...
To commemorate the long awaited arrival of the "Take back the park" series and the inevitable arrival of (possibly fewer?) Phillies fans at Nationals Park this weekend, relive the fun of a horde of Phillies fans descending upon Nationals Park with the video above. It'll be interesting to see how the weekend attendance shakes out. But really, all we're hoping...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Trevor Cahill took a four-hit shutout into the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Washington 5-1 Tuesday night to stretch the Nationals' losing streak to five games.
Teenager Bryce Harper went 0 for 3 in his home debut for the Nationals. Harper, the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft, is 2 for 9 since being recalled from the minors on Saturday.

He is now the youngest player to play with the Nationals at 19 and 195 days of age. Harper started the game in left field and batted seventh.In his first at bat, after getting ahead in the count 2-1, Harper hit a one hopper...
This series with the Phillies has been marked with a bullet on the calendar of Nationals fans since February. The Nationals wanted to pack Nationals Park with their own fans, and not Phillies fans, during this series. We'll see how good they did this weekend, as the first place Nationals host the fourth place Phillies in Washington's first real divisional test this year....
