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.    

“I felt good out there,” the National’s starting pitcher, Max Scherzer said. “I felt like I was executing pitches…from that standpoint, this is a great first start for me to go out there again and make a little adjustment on the cutter and go out there and compete again.”

Scherzer picked up where he left off last year facing the pitcher, Jacob DeGrom, …

Bryce Harper Puts On A Show For The Home Crowd

WASHINGTON (HMG)– The second deck of Nationals Park literally shook when Bryce Harper’s Home Run Derby winner “dinger” sailed over the right field fence.  Harper, adorned in a Washington, DC flag bandana pumped his fist and marched about home plate and the on deck area as if he had just hit a walk-off home run in the seventh game of the World Series.  Meanwhile, the home crowd, which had waited since 1969 to see another All Star game in the nation’s capital was wild with approval.

PHOENIX- Stephen Strasburg went 6.2 innings for the Washington Nationals on Saturday afternoon, allowing only one run, and striking out nine.  The Arizona Diamondbacks have now dropped four games in a row, three to the Nationals, and are 3-7 in their last 10 games.

Despite the bad last two weeks (about), Arizona has managed to keep a three game lead over the Rockies in the NL West.  If it wasn’t for the fact that all of the teams are in losing streaks right now in the NL West, this lead would have been gone days ago.  Despite the slide, there are still some positives.  But I’m not …
