Jake Takes Nats to the Max

The Washington Nationals “maxed out” the attendance, “maxxed” the disdain intensity for their former super star, Bryce Harper and found their maximum level of offensive inefficiency in their home opener, Thursday, Mar. 28, 2019.  As Max Scherzer took the mound and broke team records, his team couldn’t find their sticks to support his “max” effort losing 2-0.
