I am definitely lobbying for a bigger type face.  However, I don't want to surrender my aisle seat.   (left edge)

 :hysterical:
My nephew who goes to a lot of games with me thinks that sign is a big deal and always shows it people. It always embarrasses the crap out of me.

Well, what if he's committed through 2019?      Do you then get credit for 2005 - 2019 (15)?'

As I was saying I am a charter member of the ST  club and have not yet had my seat privileges revoked , yet. I promise not to use the "A" word again or any word of insult or degradation which begins with the first 26 letters of the alphabet.

BTW with the game on the line and runners in scoring position; 2 outs bottom of the 9th; who do you want at the plate? My  preference with the first being my first preference in descending  order

1. Murphy
2. Rendon
3. Weiters
4.  Lind
5. Zimmerman
6. Clint Robinson
7. Harper

1.048 OPS with RISP this season.

1.121 with RISP & 2 outs.

.992 in "late and close."

1.147 OPS in "high leverage" situations.

We deserve to have Bryce leave and sign with Chicago considering how many hoops Nats fans jump through to bash his performance.

Of all the dumb PC and sportsfan posts on this forum, this might go down as the stupidest in its history.

You can differentiate being negative towards Harper and just trolling when you compare him to Espinosa and say you rather Clint Robinson hit for him in the clutch.  Likely a Yankees fan hoping Harper hears of this and hates DC fans and signs with the Yanks.

Well, he likes him better than Edwin Jackson, with respect to clutch hitting anyway.

Yeah, I can verify that one. Though, as I recall, he makes the LoD folks seem pretty optimistic.

My candid assessment - he complains way too much, always has. Doesn't appear to derive much pleasure from being a fan, most of his posts are doom and gloom.  On the other side, he is definitely not a troll, I can absolutely guarantee that; he is as passionate about the team as  any of us, and best of all, he hates Angelos with a passion that even I can't seem to match.

What is going on in this thread? Someone complaining about Harper hitting .347 with RISP? Or that he's batting .342 with 2 outs and RISP? That he's hitting over .300 in every single "clutch hitting" category on baseball-reference?

Can a mod please move this thread to the bizarro-world WNFF, FFNW.ten?

NJ Ave I bet you could throw Harper 3 braking balls in the dirt with RISP and he would swing and miss each one. Just as he did Saturday in Chicago....stay tuned and watch

wSI is 11.9 and wSL is 2.8 and those are the two most likely pitches to end up in the dirt but hey, why let facts get in the way of the hate?

Nothing you say is supported by facts or evidence.

I nominate this guy to replace PC as the biggest idiot in forum history.

But the fact that he’s even in consideration with less than 40 posts is astounding...
