Nats Edge Closer to Bryce Harper Signing

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

The Pirates and Orioles are turning in Herculean efforts to catch the Nats in the Bryce Harper Sweepstakes, but it’s almost impossible now. After losing six in a row, the Pirates won Friday. The Orioles have lost an impressive eight straight, but even if they lost their remaining nine for a 17-game losing streak, the Nats would have to go 8-1 for the O’s to tie it. Pittsburgh’s win put them back to 5.5 behind with 10 games to go, meaning they would have to lose seven to tie an 8-1 Nats finish.

Nats One Step Closer; Reds Eliminated?

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

As the Nats moved one step closer to winning the rights to draft The Chosen One, Bryce Harper, by losing for the seventh straight game, their three closest pursuers kept pace by dropping their games as well. But they each have one fewer game to lose. And bye-bye Ohio: the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians effectively removed themselves from the race by tripping up and winning games, falling 15.5 and 13.5 games back.
