BEST OF MAXIM
As you may recall, Bryce Harper’s signature catchphrase, “That’s a clown question, bro,” might never have caught on and taken over the interwebs if it hadn’t been for a reporter in Toronto inquiring about whether the 19-year-old Harper had any intention of taking advantage of Canada’s younger legal drinking age earlier this season, so it [...]
Yankees analyst David Cone was describing a replay of an Ichiro Suzuki groundball and just had to go... there. Yes, he actually called Ichiro Suzuki's bat a "chopstick" during the YES Network's Yankees broadcast tonight. You see, because Ichiro is from Japan, and chopsticks are a traditional Asian eating utensil, and both products are made from wood...
Knowing that Bryce Harper is the historian of the game that he is; you get the feeling that he wanted to put the Busch Stadium notch in his belt for parks he’s crushed one out of before his rookie season concluded.
When he came to the plate the other night against Pork Chop Lance Lynn, he did exactly that. This one flies nearly to the golden arches.
It was home run number 22...
Friday in Texas, the Baltimore Orioles will play their first postseason game in 15 years. The 2012 season has been one of rebirth for the franchise, a fresh start after 14 consecutive years with a losing record.
But there's a link between the team's current architect and a tormenter from Octobers past.

Think maybe now the Texas Rangers will snap out of it?
The two-time defending American League champions have been mostly sleepwalking since the first two weeks of the season. They're a mere 43-40 since June 30. And on Wednesday afternoon, they got what they deserved.

Having clinched the National League East division last night during the Nationals 2-0 loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies, but home field advantage still on the line, the Nationals have decided to rest their regular players.
This is tonight's lineup vs. the Phillies:
Thanks to strong pitching from Gio Gonzalez and Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper's burst of energy and Adam LaRoche's slugging, the Washington Nationals won enough from April through September that even a loss on the first day of October could not stop them from clinching the NL East.
Despite being beaten 2-0 by the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night, the Nationals earned...

This Nats flag was billowing in the wind outside my sister’s place in D.C. a few weeks ago when my wife and I visited her in D.C. Playoff pride. It’s a wonderful thing.
Last night, the Washington Nationals clinched the NL East making it that much more official…and real.
It all got me to thinking. My toddler nephew needs to appreciate this. Drink it in, Jack-man...
