I found this to be a good article on the whole Harper saga with us.

His friend made easily one of the stoopidest suggestions I've ever seen in print:

Why not have Harper throw out the first pitch at a Nats game?

And, Rendon did not make his first All Star "appearance" this year.

Otherwise...a decent morning read...thanks...

It was a throwaway line in what I though was a pretty good article.

:lmao:  I thought the suggestion was for somewhere down the line (after he retired) and that sounded stupid enough. But this idiot suggested he do it this week for a playoff game! :crackup: fanbois are freaking stupid.

meh, it was a pretty aerial view of the harper stuff with a pretty good "nats fans are ridiculous but that's sports" tone. i thought there would be something more to it.

I can already see the "here's your ring nag!" t-shirts at Nationals Park next season when the phillies are in DC. :stir:



the taunting should be fabulous  :hysterical:

They had a live band playing near that area behind the scoreboard, just covers of famous hit songs. They started playing Jonathan Papelbon's old closer entrance music (at least in Boston) and I got annoyed. Then I remembered that I guess strangling Harper is probably popular with Nats fans now.

Bryce finally spoke yesterday.  He said he has no jealousy and he is so happy for the guys.  I love the fact that he has to even answer these questions.

No matter what happens the rest of the way, if Parra signs with a NL team next season and he comes back as a visitor, does he get a standing ovation or does he even get the baby shark for one AB?

At this point I don't think it matters. I think it would be even juicier if he went to the phillies and Harper gets to witness how the fans embrace Parra but boo the crap out of him. :crackup:

you know, if we win, the "Dude where's my ring" memes will be outstanding.

Not if he signs with a division rival.

But we played Take On Me for Morse
