Bryce Harper has been put on the 15-day disable list for knee bursitis. Harper was doing some light jogging in the pool and the knee still kept swelling up. Unfortunately, it sounds like he will be heading to see Dr. Andrews on Monday to check out the knee. “I thought if he took some anti-inflammatory [medicine] it would calm it down, but it’s kind of been lingering,” Davey...

Two Possible Draft Trade Down Scenarios

You see, what had happened was… The NBA Draft is exactly three weeks away and with no sure-fire superstars this year, the top of the draft still remains a mystery. Washington currently owns the 3rd overall pick and most Wizards outlets have Grunfeld selecting Otto Porter or Anthony Bennett. Both players would fit a need for the Wiz Kids and I would be ecstatic with either pick...

NBA Playoffs: Finals Predictions

Since none of the Blog So Hard team picked the correct finals match-up in our playoff predictions, it’s time to take another swing at things. The Spurs blew through the surging Grizzlies in the Western Conference Finals and sent them home in four games. The Heat/Pacers match-up in the Eastern Conference Finals was easily the best series of the playoffs thus far and saw the Heat...

Orioles 2013 Draft Outlook – 1st Round Prospects

The most important part about the 2013 MLB Draft may be that the Orioles are not picking in the top ten. WHOOO!!!!!! The 3 day, 40 round event kick off Thursday evening as it goes head to head with game 1 of the NBA finals. The Orioles do have the 22nd pick and a depleted farm system so they need to make the most of their pick even though it’s later in the round than they are used...

Could Don Mattingly Be The Next Skipper of the Nationals?

At this point in the season I don’t think anyone of importance is worried about who will be the Washington Nationals manager in 2014. But as a fan and with the Nationals not playing up to expectations, it’s on the top of my mind. So who is in the running to be the next skipper of the Nationals: Bench Coach Randy Knorr, 3rd base coach Trent Jewett, or a big time name like Joe...

Redskins Training Camp Battles: Wide Receivers

In the 2011 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins started to lay the foundation for what would become the deepest receiving core Washington has had in 20 years when they drafted the big possession wide receiver Leonard Hankerson in the 3rd round and the speedster Aldrick Robinson in the 6th round. In 2012, the Redskins continued to add talent but this time they did so through free agency...

Where Has The Orioles Magic Gone?

2012 was undoubtedly an exceptional year for the Orioles bull pen. Unforunately, 2013 is a different story. Pedro Strop has continued to miss the strike zone in important situations and when he does throw strikes they go into the stands. To Pedro’s defense, his exceptional fastball misleads his experience pitching.  Strop wasn’t always a bull pen guy, he grew up playing shortstop...

THOUGHTFUL GESTURE

RG3 sends signed thank you note for gift

When it became public knowledge that Robert Griffin III was getting married and he had an open registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Redskins fans and RGIII fans alike flocked to the registry and bought up all of the gifts listed. Somehow, the media decided to put criticism on Griffin for accepting gifts that were purchased for him without him asking fans to do so. Personally, I had...

Rendon’s Hot-Streak Might Force Roster Moves

Anthony Rendon made a start at second base for the Harrisonburg Senators on Monday night. Could this be a direct reflection to the struggling second basemen on the Washington Nationals? The second base position is far from set on the Nationals. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to who will be starting game to game. Espinosa is hitting a despicable .163 with 40 strikeouts...

Who Should The Wizards Draft With The 3rd Pick?

If you haven’t heard by now, the Washington Wizards found some luck during the NBA Draft Lottery last night. With a few lucky draws of the ping pong balls, they jumped up from the 8th position to landing the 3rd overall pick in the draft come June. It appears that the consensus is Nerlens Noel will be the number one pick overall (certainly still not a lock), and that the Orlando...

Some Questions For Davey Johnson and the Struggling Washington Nationals

Since May 10, the Washington Nationals have been miserable/depressing/dreary/dull/lackluster… pick your own negative adjective as you please.  They lost a series (1-2) to the Chicago Cubs at home, lost another (1-2) to the Dodgers on the road, split a series (2-2) with the Padres in San Diego, and are looking to avoid a three-game sweep today to the Giants as they have lost the...

Anthony Bennett is a 6’7 240 pound forward prospect in the 2013 NBA draft. He has huge hands, wide shoulders and an enormous 7’1″wingspan which gives him great ability to dunk the ball with power. He’s very athletic, long, quick & fast to go along with an impressive vertical. Scouts believe on the offensive end that Bennett could complement Wall and Beal well with his...
