Nationals

Nationals manager Dave Martinez held a private meeting https://www.rockiesedges.com/colorado-rockies/gerardo-parra-jersey with Bryce Harper after the outfielder failed to run out a ground ball against the Mets on Saturday night.The Natinals lost 4-2, their fourth lo s in the last six games. But the Nationals had a chance to halt the scoring if Harper ranout of the box in the fifth inning with two Mets on base. He didn’t, and the Mets were able to turn a double play.The situation was bad enough that Martinez met with Harper privately to discu s the situation.”I’ve spoken to Bryce and that’s a conversation that will stay between Bryce and I,” Martinez said, via the A sociated Pre s.”He wants to win, that’s all he cares about,” Martinez said. “Regardle s of his average, he has 23 home runs and 53 RBI. I believe that he’s going to hit 40 and drive in 100. I’m a big fan of Bryce. I love https://www.rockiesedges.com/colorado-rockies/charlie-blackmon-jersey the kid because of what he brings every day. He’s a good kid, that’s all I can say.”Unsurprisingly, Harper didn’t want to discu s his conversation with Martinez, nor the mistake he made.Harper was frustrated to be asked about not running out the DP ball last night and whether Davey brought it up today like he mentioned he would.After I hit the ball 108 miles per hour?He ended the conversation shortly after.
