Things are going downhill fast in Washington.
Steven Strasburg has already been lit up, serving up a three-run homer in the first to the Mets’ Andrew Brown.
And then it got even worse. In the top of the second, Bryce Harper took a knee to the head while sliding in to second.
Harper was able to stay in the game, but still, a pretty scary moment for Nationals fans.
I can already hear the debates firing up. How can we stop knees from hitting players’ heads?
It’s time for MLB to take a good hard look at the knee-to-head scourge. Something must be done to soften players’ knees.
Or harden players’ heads. Or maybe sliding should be outlawed.
Any way you slice it, between Strasburg serving up a homer in the first and Harper taking a shot to the melon, things have already gotten tense for the Nats.
