Kick off the New Year right: Noah Syndergaard calling Harper a douche on Instagram: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/noah-syndergaard-leaves-unflattering-comment-on-bryce-harpers-instagram-230051028.html

 

I thought it was a fake account. 

 

Welp. Syndergaard was just listing all the injuries from last year. Replies were brutal. Calling him a whiner.

I love it! Add some spice to the rivalry. Now EVERYONE will be gunning for Noah next year.

 

And his first start of the season at Nats Park I hope the fans serenade him with a douche bag chant...

Kind of ironic...Harper never goes on completely unrealted Instagram post to call someone a douche.

 

Maybe Syndergaard should concentrate on holding baserunners instead.

Harper might be one. See pics of him as a really little kid with his brother. They are wearing Cowboys or ND or Duke or Yankees gear. I put that one on Dad for teaching that you root for the front runner. 

 

But end of the day, Bryce has embraced DC even if he still loves the teams that I listed. He doesn't rub in our faces. That counts for something.

It's incredibly easy to come off as a douche when you are a confident, good looking young guy who's great at what he does and is unapologetic about it.

 

I still have yet to see anything that suggests to me that he us truly a dickhead.

If you've had any actual interaction with Harper, you wouldn't call him a douche.

Like Sinister said, he's confident, maybe a little hot tempered, but he he isn't a douche. Grayson Allen is a douche. Jonathan Papelbon is a douche. Brian McCann is a douche.

The single personal interaction I've had with him was incredibly positive. I ran into him spending a day at the National Zoo with his fiancé, and not wanting to make a scene, I approached cautiously and asked him how his thumb was doing (he was on the DL at the time). He was very gracious and chatted with me for a second, and as I was walking away he shouted at me so I turned back around just to say, "Hey, thanks for asking."  Don't even care that he was wearing a cowboys hat that day, he was great with me as a fan during a random encounter in public.

I'm ready for MLB to start. At least the Nats are nice enough to have kick ass regular seasons before breaking our hearts.

Totally depressed. Went to Skins game today. Sat 3 rows from the field. In a sea of Giants fans. 

 

DC sports will gut you...

Good to hear.  Hope MASN Dan Kolko is back on board, too.

Spring training single game tickets are not on sale until January 14.  There will be three price tiers of tickets, depending, presumably, on the opponent -

"Regular," "Prime" and "Marquee." For example the best seats, called Home Plate Box, will cost $42 for Regular, $55 for Prime, and $65 for Marquee.

$65? We paid 1/3rd that last year for 4 rows behind the plate. Sitting among scouts, which was really cool.

 

Looking forward to Spring Training, even if I am worried about this year.

Yes, no doubt that's why the price almost tripled. I don't disparage the upping--gotta pay for it somehow right?
