    3-4 tonight with 2 doubles, one that missed being a home run by maybe 2 feet.

    It is too late for me to edit my most recent post, but both of his doubles last night actually missed being home runs by a few feet as they hit 15 feet up the wall in right-center.

    Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades.

    The Nationals OF has to have the best arms in the game. Harper, Ankiel, and Werth..No one in their right mind will run on that trio..This Harper kid may be the real deal. He hits the ball hard and has great power to all parts of the field.

    So I would guess that when Morse comes back they'd slide Harper to CF?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I think this is exactly what will happen. But he doesn't slide anywhere in the batting order. I think he'll be in the 3-hole to stay.

    Depending on Ankiel does he could go to 1b and they trade LaRoche. IIRC Morse isn't a very good outfielder and 1b is his better position.

    Hamels admits throwing at Harper. Uncalled for if you ask me. Sure had to make the steal of home sweet.

    Surprised Hamels admitted it. Even though it was obvious. He'll get a suspension now and a fine now. Although it will probably be for only one start.
    I wonder if Zimmerman will admit to hitting Hamels on purpose?

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    That steal of home was awesome. Always cool to see hitting a guy backfire on the pitcher. I don't have a problem with what Hamels did but geez don't admit to it. Thats just opening up a can of worms.

    I kind of think of it as just one of those things in the game you just don't talk about

    No, he was there Friday or Saturday. He happens to be the luckiest person alive, so I was downright shocked that Harper didn't go deep at least twice in the game.

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Did you guys see the double he hit right over the short stops head?

    Stupid risky or smart risky? Down by 2 with 4 outs to go.

    I liked it. I feel like he took advantage of Juan Pierre's lack of hustle and weak arm.
