Elsewhere in Harper mythology, the wunderkind had a rough night at the dish, going 0-for-5 in his worst game since joining the Nats two weeks ago. It was so bad that after...

Tater Trot Tracker: Bryce Harper's First Career Home Run by Larry Granillo

Ever since Bryce Harper's Sports Illustrated cover story at the age of 15, there's been a lot of talk about the phenom—and two topics especially: how good is this kid really going to be? and how cocky can he be? From obnoxious tweets to scary eye-black to a few blown kisses during a minor league tater trot, the second question seemed like it might be the more controversial...

Harper hits first major league HR

Bryce Harper is as sentimental about his first big league homer as he is about the rest of the many milestones in his baseball career. The ball's headed for a cardboard box. The 19-year-old rookie became the youngest major leaguer to homer since 1998 with a solo shot in the third inning of the Washington Nationals' 8-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Monday night....

Nats win; Harper gets cut in tantrum

Roger Bernadina and Danny Espinosa each hit a two-run homer off Leake on Friday night, setting off one of Washington's biggest scoring splurges of the season and a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The slow-starting Nationals had scored only three runs in the first inning all season. They had that many before...

The Nickname Crisis In Our Nation's Capital

I blogged about this when Stephen Strasburg made his debut, but with 19-year-old Bryce Harper now seemingly in a Nationals uniform to stay the situation has become intolerable. Washington has two of the most exciting, talented, compulsively watchable young players in their lineup that the grand old game has had grace its fields in a long time... ...and neither one of them has...
