No fine or suspension for Bryce Harper for not really doing anything during Sunday's ejection

Not surprisingly, MLB did not fine or suspend Byrce Harper after his ejection at the hands of fightin' John Hirschbeck on Sunday in Pittsburgh. And, not surprisingly, Harper said all the right things when he heard about the decision: "It's great. I'm glad I don't have to pay the $1,000. That's another $1,000 in my pocket, so that's good. That...

Washington Nationals Activate Third Baseman Ryan Zimmerman

Was Bryce Harper’s Ejection Justified?

We all know that Bryce Harper can be a hot head at times. Do we need to bring up the fact that he slammed a bat into a wall and hit himself in the face? But he is young and plays with his heart on his sleeve, and this is why we love him. I am never really the one to take the side of a player when he gets ejected, but when I look at the video again, I have to say Harper did nothing...

Bryce Harper ejected by John Hirschbeck, who was looking to toss him (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Bryce Harper had a very quick afternoon during the Washington Nationals’ 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Harper had only one at-bat, as he was thrown out by umpire John Hirschbeck in the top of the first inning for arguing over a check swing. The call looked questionable and the ejection even more so. Harper reportedly dropped...

Closed-door Meetings and Double-Steals Lead to Victory for Nats

Davey Johnson is not known for being much of a speech man. But before the game on Saturday evening Johnson did just that. After the 3-1 loss to the Pirates on Friday, Johnson was very worried about where the team was at. To get some of his frustration out he took a 40-plus swing batting practice, and when asked about it Johnson said, “ I wanted to see if it was hard to hit a baseball...

Harper Vs. Hirschbeck: Breaking Down The Ejection

I know I'm a bit late to the game here, but I was unable to write until today, so I figured it was better late than never to talk about Bryce Harper's ejection by third base umpire John Hirschbeck from Sunday afternoon's game in Pittsburgh. The more I watch the video, the more amazed I am at the ejection and the set of circumstances that unfolded following the game. First...

Washington Nationals Bryce Harper ejected in latest player-umpire dustup

Zimmermann To Lead Nats’ Attempt At First-Ever Win Against Tigers

  The Washington Nationals (17-15) have never won a game against the Detroit Tigers (19-11), but they will try to break that losing streak during the Tigers’ first visit to Nationals Park.

Tigers-Nationals postponed by rain

On a day when rain postponed the start of a much-anticipated series against the Detroit Tigers, the Washington Nationals got some good news.

Harper was ejected by third base umpire John Hirschbeck for disputing a checked...

Game 2013.31: Nationals at Tigers

19-11, 1st place, 1.5 games up. Well, this has been a fun stretch. Your Tigers have now won 9 out of 10 games, outscoring their opponents 74-25 (that’s a pythagorean winning % of 89%, or about 143 – 19). Now, the last 7 games were played against the Astros and Twins, so let’s no be disappointed if they don’t score 5 in the first every game here on out. But the Tigers did...

Nationals 6, Pirates 2

The Bucs dropped the series to the Nats on Sunday, falling in frustrating fashion for the second day in a row. They had a golden opportunity to break the game open early and missed it, and things went downhill from there. The game could not have started any better for the Pirates, and that’s not hyperbole. Wandy Rodriguez tossed 1-2-3 first and Bryce Harper was ejected after arguing...
