Morning Pixels: Stop comparing Bryce Harper to LeBron

For some reason it’s irresistible to some people to compare athletes to other athletes. Calling someone the Michael Jordan of this sport or the Tiger Woods of that sport.

A disturbing trend of Bryce Harper/Lebron James comparisons has popped up recently. For instance:

STOP IT. Stop it right now. He isn’t the LeBron James of baseball. He’s Bryce Harper, and that’s plenty.

 

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER

* Nats shut out the Marlins.

* Caps move at the deadline makes their playoff intentions clear.

* Beal will miss the rest of the Wizards season with a leg injury.

* Jason Reid says Rutgers managed to do the right thing, eventually.

 

TWEET OF THE NIGHT
Biggest stretch for a RT ever.

 

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Ryan Mattheus on the Nats shutout:

“It’s not really hard to fathom. I look at this staff, and that’s what I expect. I see one through five, and then the bullpen, the seven guys we got, I think there’s going to be a lot of shutouts.”

PEEP SHOW OF THE DAY
In an effort to give fans at the stadium something fans at home don’t, the NFL is mandating that all teams put cameras inside their locker rooms and provide footage for fans in attendance at games. They’re leaving it up to the teams to decide what they’ll actually provide. I vote for Redskins singing showtunes.

 

BLUTH NEWS OF THE DAY
Arrested Development’s Netflix release date is apparently May 26. Fifteen new episodes available just after midnight. Who’s hosting the marathon? I’ll bring the unlimited juice.
