So much is made of the Washington Nationals Pitching people forget they also have one of the best young offensive players in the game. Bryce Harper is probably as good as he thinks he is and that's saying something. Harper is brash, cocky and a little arrogant but man can he play. He and Mike Trout should be the faces of baseball for the next decade plus. Here's the "good" news, the Yankees get to see Harper up close during this two game series and oh yeah the Yankees bats have gone cold.

Good luck Nathan Eovaldi tonight's your night. Place those high 90's pitches and the Yankees have a chance to get back on track. Leave those pitches up in the zone against Harper and the ball will leave the park. The real good news the Yankees have played up to their competition for the most part this season.
