As a note in preparation for the upcoming Yankees-Nationals series, I have to say that I'm digging Bryce Harper as a player, and as an interview. He gave that idiot Canadian reporter's question about drinking a beer the answer it deserved: “That’s a clown question, bro.” I'm going to start using that phrase as an answer to everything. Hear that, Squawker Jon? That's a clown question, bro!Here's the thing. Reporters ask those kinds of questions not to get a good story, but to drum up controversy. How was Harper, who is a non-drinking Mormon teenager, supposed to answer that? If he had said yes, there would have been a whole story about how Harper, age 19, thinks he's above it all. It was a total gotcha question. So Harper gave an obnoxious question an obnoxious answer. Good for him. Frankly, I wish A-Rod would do that sometimes, with some of the clown questions he gets.Speaking of which, I heard some Yankee "fans" devalue A-Rod tying Lou Gehrig on th...

Pitcher R.A. Dickey made it clear from the start that he wanted no part of it. If he was to get a no-hitter, he wanted it to be controversy-free. He wanted it to be clean.
Dickey, the knuckleball-throwing ace, got his wish Friday when Major League Baseball denied the Mets’ appeal on the ruling of the Rays’ B.J. Upton’s first-inning single in Wednesday’s game that turned...
On Tuesday night, Washington Nationals rookie outfielder Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a monster home run to help lead the team to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Harper was answering questions after the game when one reporter asked him which beer he might be interested in drinking to celebrate his home run, pointing out that the drinking age is only 18 in Canada...
At just 19 years old, Bryce Harper can't even legally enjoy a beer in the United States. When he crosses the border, however, it's fair game. Just don't ask him about it. Harper hit a monster home run at Rogers Centre on Tuesday as the Nationals picked up a 4-2 road victory over the Blue Jays. The blast drilled a BlackBerry sign located to the right of the park's...
"That's a clown question, bro."
Get comfy with that response, because you're about to hear it a whooooole lot over the next three or four days (the usual lifespan of such things).
If you're too lazy to watch the embedded video, that's how 19 year old National's slugger Bryce Harper responded to a question from a reporter asking him what his favorite...
Mets pitcher R.A Dickey just recently became the first pitcher to reach 10 wins this season. Dickey Pitched all nine innings with one run scored(un earned though). Not only did Dickey become the first to 10 wins he also had a streak of no run innings, that previously ended, at 32 and 2/3 innings. R.A a fenomenal knuckle ball pitcher has pitched amazingly with a 2.20 ERA and 90 total...
The New York Mets went more than 50 years and 8,000 games without ever recording a no-hitter, a streak that Johan Santana finally snapped June 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals. If they get their way, they'll suddenly have two in less than two weeks. Prior to his club's 9-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, manager Terry Collins said that the Mets have appealed...
Capitalism (and the internet) strikes again.
Less than 24 hours have passed since Bryce Harper uttered the phrase, “That’s a clown question, bro”. But the t-shirt to celebrate Harper’s best answer to a question probably in his life is available for purchase.
We say it again and again: Capitalism never sleeps.
When Bryce Harper was asked if he was going to celebrate the Nationals' victory and his monster dong of a home run with a Canadian beer he gave the soundbyte of the year. Is #thatsaclownquestionbro trending on twitter now? C'mon, that's a clown question bro.
Bryce Harper homered off the restaurant in center field, Danny Espinosa added a two-run blast and the Washington Nationals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to five games.
Jhonatan Solano added his first career homer as the Nationals improved to 6-2 in interleague play.
Washington's five-game winning streak matches a season best. The...

Dickey's non-no-hitter at Subway Squawkers.In case you haven't seen the video of Bryce Harper saying...
With all due respect to Bryce Harper, the 19-year-old Washington Nationals outfielder is not even close to the best player who can't legally buy a beer in most U.S. states. Harper has been all baseball's rage ever since he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated as a fresh-faced 16-year-old in 2009, but right now he's being outshined on a nightly basis by a player...
It must be something I give off. I wasn't wearing any Mets stuff early in my day on Wednesday. Yet all I had to do was mention to a couple of other people in the hotel I was staying at that I live in Queens for them to tell me that they were big Mets fans and start talking baseball.
Then I got to a restaurant to enjoy a meal while wearing swim trunks and a ratty Eric Clapton...
Coming into the season, big things were expected of Matt Moore. He was ridiculous down the stretch and in the playoffs last year — striking out 23 batters in 19 innings pitched between the regular season and the playoffs — and was considered to be on par with prospects like Bryce Harper and Mike Trout heading into the year. However, while Harper and Trout are posting historically...
Well, today is decision day on the appeal that the Mets filed hoping that MLB would overturn the play that was scored a hit during R.A. Dickey’s spectacular start against the Rays.
That one hit turned out to be the only one the Rays would get that day, and the masses are split as to whether it was actually a hit or an error by third baseman David Wright, who flubbed the play...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The National League wins co-leader faced the American League wins co-leader Wednesday night, a 98 mph fastballs vs. 80 mph knuckleballs. It was contest. The New York Mets' R.A. Dickey bedazzled the Rays with his knuckler to come within one infield hit of a no-hitter, and the Mets ripped the Tampa Bay Rays 9-1. Rays starter David Price was bludgeoned...
