Latest Dodger Stadium Items
The not-so-subtle implication racing through the Internet of a concussion conspiracy by the Nationals makes as much sense as, well, running into walls. What could they possibly gain by pretending Harper didn't have a concussion or engaging in a game of semantics to avoid using the word?
In the Nationals' brief history, Greinke represents one of their greatest "What if?" questions. What if the right-hander hadn't nixed the rumored trade that would've brought him to D.C. instead of Milwaukee before the 2011 season — and possibly cost the Nationals multiple members of their core?
Harper's second unsuccessful encounter this month with the physics of smacking into an outfield wall led to him doubling down on the hair-on-fire approach. He told reporters "I'm trying to kill myself out there" and, really, that's what the collision looked like.
Bryce Harper has left the game in the fifth inning after the Washington Nationals star ran full-on into the scoreboard in right field at Dodger Stadium on Monday night.
