Bryce Harper’s knee – The Nats superstar is seeing Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his swollen left knee today. Mike Rizzo said Sunday the team is confident there is no structural damage, or any reason for serious concern. Still, Nats fans will be anxiously awaiting the news as Harper has been the team’s most indispensible player so far this season.

    Wow Braves made that interesting. Same result though. We gain half a game!

    Whew, J Upton strikes out. Can't believe the Padres bullpen almost blew that game.@@@@@!!!!

    Justin Upton K's to end it.

  6. Nats 128 - Jun 11, 2013 at 4:43 AM

    Braves are set to go on a long losing streak.

    They came dangerously close to coming back from 7-1 down in the 8th. This guy Gattis has been pretty unreal.

    No one wants to win it in LA, either.

    Some questions….How many of you still fell ego and arrogance is not a big reason for the Nats fall this year?To date Mark and Ghost have said it….I think Njack did but he seems to have taken a vacation from his "it is early and Davey is God like and Rizzo is super smart" view.How many of you still think it is early and games in April, then May and now June do not matter?Ghost's latest….."it's also ego driven. 2 years and 2 months and Josh Willingham invested in this player. Rizzo doesn't want to walk away empty."

    Ghost, give JD some slack. He's trying.

    JayB, your post marks the first time in quite some time that I've read anything about it being early or the games not mattering.

    Davey was a Math major and the numbers are easy to work with. 100 games left. 31 in the W column now. 95 wins requires 64-36 the rest of the way. 90 wins requires 59-41 the rest of the way.One game at a time.

    "Nats should have kept 1 of the 3, either Burnett,Gonzo or Gorzo."————————–Mick, this is a weird statement to make in retrospect. Given that none of the three, has produced at, shall we say, an enviable level, why are you wishing one of them was still here? Sime of the ones Rizzo went with, haven't worked out, but why not wish for different free agent or a trade? If you want to bash over bad decisions, wish for something productive….
