Come On, Give Bryce Some Sugar

So if you haven’t seen it yet, HERE is some video of Nationals phenom and super prospect Bryce Harper smashing a home run during a June 6th Hagerstown Suns game and as he comes around third to home plate he obviously blows a kiss to the pitcher.

Jayson Werth Is A Werewolf Of Mystery

The Nationals got completely savaged and swept out of Milwaukee this afternoon. It was actually a pretty good fight as crappy baseball games go. The Nationals kept trying to come back, but the Brewers always seemed to come up with the answers and the Nationals eventually lost 6-4. The series and the whole road trip [...] Continue reading

Bryce Harper In 2011? Wake Up And Smell Reality

Ah, finally. Back on the NQ. I am somewhere in the wilderness of Nelson County, VA with my employer Lord Henry Rumplefoot who is hunting down a pack of intrusive coyotes while I take notes and write about it. Using a 577 T-Rex rifle with a compass in the stalk, he has claimed two of [...] Continue reading

Harper Slams, Strasburg Bass Fishes

There is some good news on the Phenom Front. Actually, it isn’t much of a “front” considering it is just two people we are talking about, but when you are talking about Nats pitcher Stephen Strasburg and prospect Bryce Harper in the same post you tend to go big. In fact, I don’t think there [...] Continue reading

Your Nationals Dispatch: Letter to Shackleford Edition

Dear Shackleford, I know it has been a couple days since the Kentucky Derby and your fourth place finish and you probably don’t want to relive and remember the last 50 feet to the finish line that ultimately defined your run, but I have to get this letter off my chest. Ever since the authorities [...] Continue reading

Bryce Harper Is The Dread Pirate Roberts

Twitterer @jwilhidejr sent this in to us. It is Bryce Harper adjusting to the rigors of manhood by carrying a pink bat and sporting a stache like the Dread Pirate Roberts. Fantastic. He also threw in this pic of Harper pimping his pink cleats and pink bat for Mother’s Day. There is so much going [...] Continue reading

Your Nationals Dispatch: The Many Faces Of Gorzo The Gorgon Edition

I know I’ve said it about 100 times already, but for the sake of this post I am going to say it again: Tom Gorzelanny sounds like  a walking monster movie. Specifically a Kaiju from a Toho production. His nickname, Gorzo doesn’t help change that perception nor does his “homely look.” Plenty has been said [...] Continue reading

The Pfitz Might Be A Certifiable Dump But It Is OUR Certifiable Dump
