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.

But hope springs eternal, so we give you the Top 5 Reasons for Nats Fans to be Optimistic.
