Video of Bryce Harper's post-game presser (via CSN Washington), above, in which he addresses the reception he expects to receive on Monday night in Philly. No chance Bryce Harper gets booed in Philly Monday night, right? No way.
"Hopefully I get a couple of boos. That would be awesome. I'm exicted to get in there and play. And hopefully they don't throw any batteries or whatnot at me. We'll see." (Bryce Harper, via CSNWashington.com, 5/20/2012)

Bryce Harper's self-imposed bloody eye was not voice enough. Harper had to speak about the Phillies fans and what he would expect when he comes to Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies take on the Nationals starting tomorrow night at 7:05.
Rich Hofmann of the Daily News had some quotes from Harper:
“Hopefully, I get a couple of boos,” Harper said Sunday, after the Nats’...
Bryce Harper is already at the center of the bad blood that is brewing between his Nationals and the Phillies. Harper made news last week just by taking a Cole Hamels fastball to the back in his first at-bat against the veteran left-hander. Hamels took the situation to the next level after the game when he admitted to intentionally plunking Harper. Everyone and their brother had...
Phiily Fans show Hatred to J.D. Drew
As everyone knows how passionate the sports fans in Philadelphia get with the Flyers, 76ers, Eagles & Phillies. After Sunday Nationals Orioles Game, Nationals Rookie Sensation Bryce Harper became a new villain in Philadelphia sports to hate more for some comments about his upcoming trip to Philadelphia to face the Phillies in a 3 game series...
We were there for the first Strasmas.
All religions have their pilgrimages and their pilgrims. So there we were that night in June of 2010, carless and stranded on Independence Avenue thirty minutes before first pitch, the Three Wise Kids, holding pink scraps of paper with the words NEED A RIDE TO NATS PARK sharpied on the back, waiting on a miracle.

Philadelphia is going to have a long span of time to wage this war with Bryce Harper.
For the time being, Harper tallied the first few wins in the battle and is being carefully coy about Philadelphia as a whole. Harper said the following after last night’s 2-1 victory in the Streets of Philadelphia (cue Bruce Springsteen):
“Yeah, I’m not even thinking about that,” he said...
It was good to see former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon showing off his Phillies home red pinstripes, even if his results favored his new team instead of his old. That's what's unique about the second to last week in May and pretty much all of June. It's a chance to watch the Red Sox play an opponent different from the Rays, Yankees, Blue Jays, Orioles and other American...
In this week's podcast, we talk about Bryce Harper's defensive struggles and offensive success. The Nats pitching has still been great, and we talk about that in some detail, and of course, we discuss injuries. We go over the Ross Detwiler vs. Chien-Ming Wang debate, suck up to Steve Lombardozzi a bit more, and talk about how awesome it is that Ian Desmond is batting fifth...
The next few nights are going to be interesting at Citizens Bank Park as the Washington Nationals visit the Philadelphia Phillies. In case you forgot the last time these two teams met, Bryce Harper was intentionally hit by a pitch from Cole Hamels. A pitch that was meant to welcome him to the big leagues which Harper responded to by stealing home. That sequence probably made Phillies...
It didnt' take long after Bryce Harper's first career home run for the young phenom of the Washington Nationals' pitching staff to take one deep, Stephen Strasburg went deep during the Nats' Sunday game against the Baltimore Orioles. It was in the fourth inning off starter Wei-Yin Chen and it received a curtain call.

I didn’t spend a ton of time this weekend watching baseball. I played 36 holes of golf. I watched several ESPN 30 for 30′s–since my wife was nice enough to let me spend our Best Buy gift card on a set of them. Here’s some stuff I took from the weekend before Memorial Day, when the cement is officially declared ‘hardened’ and we know what we have seen in the instances...

The Washington Nationals (24-17) are heading up I-95 towards Citizens Bank Park to kick off a nine-game road trip with a series against the Philadelphia Phillies (21-21), which could be considered the first face-off since the two teams became rivals, at least in the eyes of the media.
The Nationals' last series against the Phillies at the beginning of the month was memorable...
