2016 MLB Season: Don’t Ignore These Three Potent NL Teams

In the mad rush to book passage on the supersonic rockets that are the Chicago Cubs, the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Pirates it might be smart for those passengers to pause for a few seconds and check out that strange rumbling noise behind them.

New York Yankees Quiet Offseason Could Mean Big Things

It’s been an offseason that may seem a little out of sorts for the New York Yankees. A team that we’ve all grown so accustomed to seeing spend major money on free agents has been dormant, yet to sign a single free agent in 2016. While at first this may seem as if they are completely content with the roster they plan on rolling out on opening day, it’s more likely the Yankees...

Bryce Harper is evolving in a Yankee-friendly direction

Bryce Harper is an incredibly good baseball player. The New York Yankees are an unfathomably wealthy organization. Following the 2018 season these two facts could converge to help author the biggest contract in the history of baseball. The operative word being ‘could.’ The inevitability of such an event has likely been overstated, but the Yankees are certainly the favorites to...

David Schoenfield on Bryce Harper versus the Mets

Harper destroyed his NL East opponents last season on his way to the MVP Award … except the Mets, that is. Against the hapless Braves, Marlins and Phillies he hit .344 with 21 home runs in 54 games. Against the Mets he hit .254 with four home runs in 18 games, with one of those home runs coming in the meaningless season-ending series between the clubs. The matchup to watch: Harper...

Is Bryce Harper a Redskins Fan Now?

WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper grew up in Las Vegas, and as a result, he had to find non-local sports teams to root for. He’s a noted fan of the New York Yankees, much to the chagrin of Nationals fans, in addition to every bandwagon team. One of those teams, of course, is the Dallas Cowboys. Harper drew the ire of Redskins fans in 2014 by posing for pictures in a Cowboys hat — in...

Mets & Nationals: Reversal of Fortunes

Four winters ago, fans of almost any other team had good reason to be envious of the Washington Nationals. They were lucky – blessed, really – that their previous futility had earned them the top slot in the draft in consecutive years that produced once-in-a-generation talents in Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper, their window for success was just opening, and they were armed...

Report: Yankees Saving Now to Offer Harper $500 Million

WASHINGTON — The Yankees have spent exactly $0 on free agency this offseason, viewed as much by baseball insiders as strategic maneuvering to get under the luxury tax ahead of the next collective bargaining agreement as it is positioning themselves to land a BIG TIME free agent. That free agent? The list starts with Bryce Harper, who becomes a free agent after the 2018 season...

Is Bryce Harper in the Phillies’ future?

By now, I’m sure every baseball fan has heard of the name Bryce Harper. I’m also certain that every baseball fan knows, that Harper could be the headliner of a loaded 2019 free-agent class.

How Nationals can flip the script and win NL East in 2016

One year ago, the Washington Nationals were given the most meaningless of honors: preseason champions. The addition of starter Max Scherzer in free agency and the development of Bryce Harper gave many good reason to tout the Nats as World Series favorites. The National League East, it appeared, was a foregone conclusion. But Washington in 2015 is the most recent example of how enormous...
