Mookie Betts Is FenwayNation's 2015 Rookie O' Year

(MLB.com)How do you summarize the rookie year contributions of one Markus Lynn Betts? How about a spectacular leaping grab on Opening Day at Fenway (robbing likely NL MVP Bryce Harper of a HR)? By the way, Betts himself also hit a 3-run HR in that game. Or the fact that he led the team in stolen bases (21) and placed third in HRs (18). Maybe you'll point to the 145 games played nearly flawlessly in various OF positions. Or the 174 hits—including 42 doubles and 8 triples. Mookie's speed also helped him score 92 runs—another number one ranking on the team. Oh, and did we mention that the...

The likely list of replacements for fired Nationals Manager Matt Williams

When Matt Williams was hired as the sixth manager in Washington Nationals history two Octobers ago, there was no way to know anything substantive about his style and strategy. How would he act in the clubhouse? How would he run a game? We could ask questions, and he could answer, but until he rolled out his first lineup (remember that one, with Wilson Ramos hitting cleanup and Bryce Harper hitting sixth?) and began pushing buttons and pulling levers, certainty was impossible.Read full article >>

Bryce Harper gave Nats one of the most valuable seasons of all time

Bryce Harper deserves to be named the National League’s most valuable player, but the numbers he put up are among the best in major league history.Bryce Harper tied for the league lead in home runs (42) with Nolan Arenado, and was just five off the MLB leader, Chris Davis (47, including two to cap off the season yesterday). While Harper may not have crushed the most home runs in the majors, but his 12.4 at-bats per home run was the best rate in the league. The last qualifying batter in the NL with fewer AB/HR was Albert Pujols (12.1) when he won his second consecutive MVP in...

Nats Journal: Bryce Harper loses NL batting title, still finishes season with historic numbers

Even though he suffered a badly bruised shin on Saturday, Bryce Harper wanted to play the final game of the Nationals’ season. He had 99 RBI, a number he didn’t want to get stuck on, and he held a minuscule lead over Dee Gordon in the race for the National League batting title. Harper also wanted to play with his mentor, friend and shortstop Ian Desmond, a pending free agent, one final time.Read full article >>
