Baseball is a funny game sometimes. The two players who could shape the game for the next decade are ranked at this position...and neither was a full-timer last year. Yes, Mike Trout and Bryce Harper will be playing left field in 2013, and both were center fielders in 2012. Harper's move was justified by the trade of Denard Span to the Nationals, while Trout shifted to left after the Angels signed Josh Hamilton and traded Kendrys Morales, shifting Hamilton to right field, Mark Trumbo to DH, and the fleet-footed Peter Bourjos to center. So while yes, it is a bit of a cop out that these two are going to be ranked here after not spending a lot of time in left field in 2012, it's just how things go sometimes. Unfortunately, that squeezes some other deserving candidates out of the mix, but that happens in life sometimes.
Remember: this list (and all of the lists we'll be rolling out this week) reflect the order I'd prefer to have the players for the 2013 season. I don...
BEST OF MAXIM
In case you couldn't stay up late last night, here's video of Bryce Harper on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in two parts. It only took a few seconds for the first "Clown Question" question. What we learned: Harper takes seven showers before each game, and eats Eggo waffles. All in all, the kid handled his first late-night TV appearance like an old pro - great job...
Whether you love him or hate him, most of us can agree that Bryce Harper is a pretty weird dude. Between telling little kids to be as sexy as they can and dressing up like a clown for Halloween, the 20-year-old has done some pretty bizarre things since he burst onto the MLB scene last year. But nothing is quite as strange as he pregame ritual.

Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper made an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night. Unlike in a past interview, Harper agreed to answer some of Kimmel's clown questions. Naturally, baseball players are considered the most superstitious athletes in sports.When asked about his superstitions, here is what Harper had to say:“I get to the field at 12:00 for...
Most people will miss Michael Morse for his off-field personality more than his on-field production, which I wrote about in my article analyzing the trade. He just found a way into the hearts of NatsTown. As such, I thought there was nothing more appropriate to discuss this morning than the top moments of Michael Morse being... well, Michael Morse.

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...
So Bryce Harper will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC tonight at 11:35 along with Rob Lowe and rapper Big Boi. [Go ahead, insert your own "Clown Question, bro" joke here.]
The appearance will be Harper's late night television debut; and most likely only the second time a Washington Nationals player has appeared on late night TV (Stephen Strasburg read the Top 10 list...
Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals made his first late-night television appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night. He talked clown questions,the infamous first-at-bat moon, Las Vegas, and superstitions.
Not a bad interview for his first time on the late night circuit. I hope Bryce Harper becomes the next spokesman of ego waffles.

If you're ready for a Question of the Week that will blow your mind, we have it in this week's podcast. (Hint: It's about Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton.) We talk about the Adam LaRoche signing and what it means for Michael Morse. We heap praise upon Mike Rizzo, talk about the projected Nats lineup, and a lot more. Join us for one of the last offseason versions of...
You may love him or hate him, but you can’t deny that Bryce Harper is young and getting it. During his rookie season in 2012, Bryce Harper hit a .270/.340/.477 with 22 homers, 59 RBIs, 18 stolen bases in 139 games, and was voted NL Rookie of the Year. However even with his new level of stardom, he isn’t afraid to live like a 20 year old.
Last night Harper took a break from advising...
Last night would have been my first night watching an entire episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. It started at 11:30 PM ET, and I was already struggling. I wanted to have a post up about this last night, but I did the smart thing and called it quits just before midnight. I figured the show’s producer would keep me up at least another hour and send Rob Lowe on stage before Harper got...
Santa Ana, Calif. - When you tell Mater Dei alum Cory Hahn he can't do something, there's a charge that goes through his mind. A charge so strong it borders defiance.It fuels him.So after being told he would never function normally again after suffering a freak injury on the baseball field two years ago, it only added fuel to his fire. Hahn, who played on the United States...

Who will dump smallish bottles of water on teammates'...
