Let's just call the batting stance "stack and jack" and the hair cut "jack and stack" for simplicity.

Spanning for SAGNOF Gold

Washington, D.C. has two Spans. If you like politics and live footage of people walking around in suits on a video feed, then C-SPAN (2:43) is your best bet in the capital city. If you prefer players who can help you win some fantasy leagues, than you better go with D-SPAN. Denard Span is currently owned in less than 50% of ESPN fantasy leagues but he's got as many steals as...

Bryce Harper Tagged Out At 1st Base After Slide Comes Up Short

Out. Very out. http://t.co/RULTvvzFZb — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) July 20, 2014 Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper had what may be the most embarrassing moment of his young career on Sunday. He took a solid leadoff, but his slide came up very, very short. Pretty reminiscent of Willie Mays Hayes.

Washington Nationals: Looking forward the second half

The second half of the Major League Baseball has already began in more ways than one. The 81 game mark was passed a couple of weeks ago, and each team has played one series since finishing the all-star break. However, the future for the Washington Nationals and every other MLB team hangs in the balance as division races are tight and the trade deadline is upcoming. Washington currently...

WATCH: Jayson Werth send Nats’ fans home happy with walk off double

Werth teed off on Brewers pitcher Rob Wooten with the speedy Anthony Rendon on first.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper Does His Best Willie Mays Hayes Impersonation

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is one of the more exciting and explosive players in baseball-but he is still pretty darn young. As a young player that still has plenty to learn he is going to make mistakes. It's expected.What is not expected is for them to be as funny as this attempt to get back to first base after taking a pretty big lead off.via TwitterSuffice...

WATCH: Bryce Harper gets picked off by a mile at first base

Everyone can remember Willy Mays Hays from the movie “Major League.” He was as fast as could be, but an absolute bonehead on the base paths (early in the movie). Well, minus being told that his shoe was untied by the first baseman, Bryce Harper was caught in a similar manner at first base Sunday afternoon. Harper had already been thrown at two previous times, and he walked back...

All-Star game not a bright moment for the Washington Nationals

After the 2014 All-Star game, there was a since of bitterness around Washington D.C., and rightfully so. The Washington Nationals entered the break in a tie for first in the NL East with the Atlanta Braves. Unfortunately, the Nationals only had one player selected to represent them in this game, a game that determines home field advantage for the World Series. During the original...

Drew Storen and Craig Stammen get their laces snipped (Video)

Up above, video of Friday night's controversy in which Drew Storen and Craig Stammen had to have the laces snipped on their gloves. Apparently the request did not come from the Brewers, but was made by Home Plate umpire Chad Fairchild, who was enforcing a new MLB directive. Stupid rules. Brewers beat the Nats 4-2. Williams said the umps, not the Brewers, were the ones asking...

Anthony Rendon: ‘I don’t watch baseball, it’s too long and boring’

One of the main complaints baseball critics have is that the games are too long. Instant replay certainly hasn’t helped speed up the game, nor have pitch counts and constant commercial breaks. Washington Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon realizes that, which is why he only plays the stuff — he doesn’t watch it. Rendon, who many […]
