Bryce Harper on Jimmy Kimmel Was Quite Amusing

Bryce Harper is a crazy dude to say the least.  From his crazy porno mustache, to rocking his RG3 style socks in church, he does some crazy things, but we enjoy every minute of it.  He recently went on Jimmy Kimmel live, and admitted to taking seven showers before every game.  He also has to have his ego waffles prior to game time.  Before his first major league at bat a couple...

The Nats Got Something For One Year Of Mike Morse’s Beastliness

The other shoe from the Adam LaRoche re-signing finally dropped: Washington traded Mike Morse to Seattle in a three-way deal with Oakland that nets them right-handed starter A.J. Cole in return.
