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.

Bryce Harper was at the 2014 All Star Game FanFest in Minnesota (on a wall)

And so, only a single Nationals player (Tyler Clippard) represented the team at the All-Star Game in Minnesota Tuesday night. But at least Bryce Harper made it on a wall at FanFest this year?

Stephen Strasburg on Orioles fans at Nationals Park: "Maybe someday it'll be different."

Somewhere, Peter Angelos is smiling and stacks of Ted Lerner's MASN money. And so, the Orioles beat the Nats 8-2 in 11 innings Monday night in front of what seemed to be an evenly split 35,126 fans until the end, when Nationals Park sounded more like Camden Yards. Lots of competing "Let's go Nats" and "Let's go O's" chants throughout, although...
