  3. For Harper, seeing is believing

    May 12, 2011, 4:17 AM EST

    Associated Press photo Bryce Harper’s offensive surge has coincided with his improved vision. Bryce Harper never had poor vision. Like millions of others, he always saw well enough to get through life without needing corrective lenses. And he certainly didn’t appear to have trouble playing baseball, dominating the high school and junior-college levels like perhaps…

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals try to make it two in a row tonight at Turner Field. John Lannan was not very good the last time he stood on a mound facing a big-league opponent. His two-inning outing in Philadelphia was among the worst in his career, and it left…

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals face longtime nemesis Tim Hudson tonight at Turner Field.

  8. Swing and a miss

    May 9, 2011, 2:34 PM EST

    US Presswire photo Michael Morse has struck out in a whopping 28.6 percent of his plate appearances. There is perhaps nothing more frustrating in baseball than the act of striking out. Or, specifically, watching someone from your team strike out. Which may explain in part why the Nationals have been particularly frustrating to watch so…
