So Bryce Harper's hair continues to be a "thing" this season. And now we have a better idea how Harp gets his hair to do that rockabilly pompadour thing as seen in the screencap above from a recent postgame interview on MASN, thanks to this Tweet from Harper on Sunday night:

With seven dingers in 74 appearances at the plate, Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper seems destined to honestly challenge Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs. Technically, Mark McGwire (70) and Sammy Sosa (66) in 1998 and Barry Bonds (73) in 2001 already surpassed Maris’ mark. However, considering the trio of McGwire, Sosa and Bonds used enough performance...
Stephen Strasburg took his fourth loss of the season on Wednesday as the Nationals fell to the Cardinals. Strasburg allowed three runs in the first inning but settled down to hold the Cardinals scoreless over the next six frames.
The Nationals have struggled to score in Strasburg’s starts totaling just nine runs in his five outings.
Today the Nationals scored just two runs to back...
It is not uncommon for balls to travel over the protective screen behind home plate, but usually that happens when a lazy, high foul pop-up comes off the bat of the hitter, not caroming sky-high after a wacky bounce during a wild pitch by an erratic pitcher.
But that exact situation occurred on Tuesday night when Washington Nationals relief pitcher Henry Rodriguez’s wild pitch...
Zebulon, N.C. –Potomac Nationals first baseman Kevin Keyes hit a two-run homer that shattered a light bulb in left field to give Potomac the 2-0 win over the Carolina Mudcats on Wednesday night at Five County Stadium.
The Nationals held the Mudcats scoreless for the first time this season. With the offense failing to score, Shawn Morimando suffered the loss for Carolina despite...
MLB News: The Houston Astros recalled outfielder Robbie Grossman on Wednesday from Triple-A Oklahoma City. He replaces Justin Maxwell who is on the disabled list with an injured hand.
Fantasy Ramifications: Grossman has no fantasy value in full-league formats. While he can have some in AL only leagues, it isn’t enough to warrant dropping someone with promise. Keep Grossman on...
Either Denard Span is trying to vault off Allen Craig here like he’s a pommel horse, or this is some kind of deliberate attack using a yet unknown martial art.
And so, while the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets have apparently courted Phil Jackson about a coaching gig recently, Jayson Werth just wants Jackson to pay a visit to the Washington Nationals clubhouse, burn some sage, and adjust the feng shui:
"Somebody was talking about Phil Jackson the other day. We need to call him up, have him come in & burn some sage or...
Marwin Gonzalez homered, Bud Norris rebounded from a tough start last time out and the Houston Astros snapped a three-game losing skid with a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
The game was tied at 1 when Gonzalez launched his homer about 10 rows into the stands in right field to start Houston's third. Gonzalez, who bats ninth, hit just four home runs in...
It was an ugly one offensively once again for the Nationals as they were shut out by the Cardinals at home. Davey was frustrated following the loss, indicating it was time to “get a little mad” and that there would be some changes in the lineup for Wednesday’s afternoon game. Hopefully, it’s enough to give the Nats a boost. Until then, the Nats have to sit on a 2-0 loss as...

Game 3 Mariners vs. Astros Preview
Time for the series clincher! The biggest matchup thus far this season. The turning point! Have I built it up enough?
Half of the Houstons victories have come against Seattle. The Astros look to beat the visiting Mariners for the fourth time this season when the teams conclude a three-game series on Wednesday.

8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox responded to a good old-fashioned beatdown by bouncing back and grinding out a 6-5 win over the Athletics on Wednesday. Now, the Sox’ focus turns to the Astros, who arrive at Fenway Park on Thursday for the start of a four-game set.
Houston, in its first year in the American League West, figures to have a difficult season ahead. The Astros are a very young...
