      Nationals' Bryce Harper: Open to contract extension

      Harper said Thursday that he's open to a contract extension with the Nationals, the team's website reports. "I'm definitely excited to be part of the Nationals organization," said Harper. "I think that being able to play in [Nationals Park], this city, this town, around the fans, it's such a great place to play. Baseball is up and coming... I'm very excited to further my career with the Nationals. I have a couple of more years in D.C., and then hopefully at the end of that, we can do what we can and I can be a National for life, hopefully." He's not eligible for free agency for another three years, but Harper is headed for some big arbitration awards before then if he isn't locked up. Mike Trout signed a six-year, $144.5 million extension in 2014 that bought out his arbitration years, and given his numbers last year and the fact that Scott Boras is his agent, you can expect Harper to look for something better than that if the Nats want to follow suit.

      Nationals' Bryce Harper: Wins NL MVP Award

      Harper was named the 2015 NL MVP by the Baseball Writers' Association of America on Thursday, reports. Most fans saw Harper as the only logical winner, and that was reflected in the voting, as Harper was the unanimous choice with all 30 first-place votes. Harper exploded with a .330/.460/.649 slash line in 2015, leading the NL with 42 homers and finish second with 124 walks. A case can be made to take Harper, who is younger than NL Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant, with the first overall pick in drafts in 2016.

      Nationals' Bryce Harper: Wins first Silver Slugger award

      Harper was named an NL Silver Slugger on Thursday, the first time in his career that he's won the award, the Nationals' website reports. "I just think I was healthy this year," Harper said. "I think that's the main thing. I was able to stay on the field this year and not have those little nagging injuries, like sliding into third base and [hurting] my thumb or running into a wall in Dodger Stadium. Just trying to be as smart as I could out there and just play the game the right way. It just comes with the experience of knowing when to go hard, when not to go hard, and just being able to be smart about everything I do." The 23-year-old joins Andrew McCutchen and Carlos Gonzalez among the NL outfield winners and he could add to his hardware this offseason, as he's one of three finalists for the NL MVP award thanks to a .330/.460/.649 slash line and 42 home runs, 99 RBI and 118 runs in 153 games. Harper's 2015 season was historic for any number of reasons, ranking him alongside names like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire in various metrics and categories, and if he avoids the injuries that limited him earlier in his career, he could just be scratching the surface.

      Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon, Bryce Harper involved in altercation

      Nationals pitcher Jonathan Papelbon was involved in a dugout altercation with teammate Bryce Harper during Sunday's loss to the Phillies, The Washington Post reports. The incident overshadowed the result of what was ultimately a meaningless game after the Nationals were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday. Papelbon appeared to be displeased with Harper slowly jogging out an infield ground ball in the eighth inning, and he confronted Harper in the dugout following the at-bat. Shouting quickly escalated into a physical altercation, as Papelbon grabbed Harper's neck before the pair were rushed by teammates and separated. W hile Harper was removed from the game and replaced in the field for the final inning, Papelbon was on the mound in the ninth inning. He gave up a two-run home run to Andres Blanco and was charged with five of Philadelphia's eight runs in the final frame. Papelbon is currently appealing a three-game ban for hitting Baltimore's Manny Machado earlier in the week, and it remains to be seen whether he'll be disciplined internally following Sunday's dustup.

      Nationals' Bryce Harper collects three hits, including game-winner

      Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper supplied almost all of the Nationals offense Saturday in a 12-inning, 2-1 win over the Phillies, going 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, a run scored and an RBI--which came on a walk-off single to secure the victory. He's now three doubles shy of a 40 2B/40 HR season and four RBI shy of a century, so Harper will have a couple of milestones to chase over the season's final week even though the Nats were officially eliminated from playoff contention Saturday.

      Nationals RF Bryce Harper leads the charge with two HRs Tuesday

      Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper was 3 for 3 with two homers, four RBI and a walk in Tuesday's 4-0 victory over the Phillies. There likely isn't a superlative that hasn't already been attached to the 22-year-old phenom, who appears to be peaking during the stretch run of what has been an absolutely dominating season. Harper is now 18 for 43 (.419) in September with eight homers and 13 RBI. He accounted for all of the Nationals' scoring on Tuesday, breaking a scoreless tie with a two-out solo shot in the first and then adding a two-run dinger in the eighth. Harper has also notably notched 14 walks in 14 September games, which adds yet another element to his seemingly inexhaustable offensive repertoire and is a contributing factor into the absurd 1.444 OPS that he came into Tuesday night's contest.
