Yesterday the controversy in Washington was over some random Matt Williams comments that suggested he was maybe sorta possibly considering sending Bryce Harper to Triple-A to figure things out. Whatever you construed his comments to be about that it was certainly the case that Harper and his struggles have been the hot topic in the land of Nattitude for the past couple of days.
What a difference a day makes: The Nationals and the Mets battled for 13 innings today, but it all ended when Bryce Harper hit a 0-1 pitch over the left field wall with a man on to give the Nationals a 5-3 victory. Watch:

Overall Harper was 2 for 6, with his other hit being a single. One swing doesn’t fix a season, but one swing can change the subject. So, gentlemen: change your narratives. Start here:
