My Sports Rumors:
Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton just continues to impress. Just when you think he can top a prior highlight he goes an one ups it. Today against the Washington Nationals he almost made an amazing grab on a Jayson Werth liner. I know that’s not a real highlight but the highlight came after. The ball was hit hard and with a diving Stanton, Werth thought he could make it to second with ease. Nope, Stanton was aware of what was going on and fired a rocket from his knees to gun Jayson down at second. Simply amazing!

So Bryce Harper got ejected by Hunter Wendlestat in the 8th inning Saturday night after arguing strike three. According to lip readers everywhere, Harper said: "F**K! No Way! That's twice!". Memo to Bryce Harper: one run game; your teammates could use you. Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.
So Bryce Harper will compete in his first ever MLB HR Derby tonight, with his father pitching to him. There is above, apparently preparing for the event in a pair of short shorts? Huh? (Photo by @MLBONFOX)
Ian Desmond on Harper's little shorts:
“@MLBONFOX: Showtime! Behind the scenes with @Bharper3407. pic.twitter.com/xy0ksQucFc” Bike coaching shorts circa 1990.
And so, Bryce Harper put on a good show in his first MLB HR Derby...but Yoenis Cespedes was even better in his. Cespedes wins 2013 HR Derby over Harper. Good show.
Still, Cespedes' hair didn't hold a candle to Harper's.

Bryce Harper may have spent Monday night smashing baseballs into the stands at Citi Field but his brother Bryan was equally impressive with his mustache. Bryce Harper qualified for the finals with his father throwing baseballs to him while his brother has become an overnight TV sensation. Better mustache: Bryce Harper's brother, or Rollie Fingers? #HRDerby pic.twitter.com/jRgDUYqLU8...

Last year I was among the many that panned the Washington Nationals decision to shut Stephen Strasburg down at the end of the regular season as well as the post season. They said they wanted to preserve Strasburg for what they envisioned to be a long, storied and successful career.
