Dusty Baker talked after last night’s win over the Braves about Bryce Harper’s hot start and what’s different for Harper early this season... Though he had already started to slow down some (before super-genius Joe Maddon and the Cubs walked him 13 times and hit him once in four games in Chicago) Bryce Harper put together an impressive April last season, finishing the month with a .286/.406/.714 line, six doubles and nine home runs in his first 96 plate appearances, earning an NL Player of the Month nod.

Nationals vs. Mets: Injuries arrive just in time for New York’s toughest test

Anyway, the Mets may be getting great pitching from Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom, but they sure as heck aren’t healthy. Lucas Duda has a hyperextended elbow. Travis d’Arnaud has a wrist contusion that he...
