Your Nationals Dispatch: The Spider Crickets Edition

Harper Goes To Where They Don’t Like Aliens

The next Nats Thing, outfielder Bryce Harper will be playing in the Arizona Fall League, effective immediately for the Scottsdale Scorpions. For a little while it seemed Harper would sit out attending the League after hitting .319 in the Instructional League, but the Nationals said they did not want him idle for the next two [...] Continue reading

Like when the Nationals are relevant, as rare as that is, this blog tends to see a spike in readership and the material tends to be on the high end of the quality spectrum.
