My colleague Chris Cillizza has a great weekly feature called “Worst Week in Washington,” where he spotlights a political figure who has landed on the wrong side of the press. I’m stealing a page out of his playbook, and it was my original intention to award a “Worst Week” to a D.C. sports figure every Friday. But I’m generally not a cranky person, so I decided that the Bog version should be all puppies and chocolate-chip cookies. So here’s “Best Week in Washington Sports.”
Chris Cillizza awarded his Worst Week today to the Nats, for a week full of losses, roster changes and trips to the DL. But one of those DL appearances might be Dr. James Andrews’s gain.
The Nats announced that 20-year old Bryce Harper would be paying the famous doctor a visit on Monday to consult on the injury he suffered to his knee after running into the outfield wall in Los Angeles last month. It will be the second knee attached to a beloved D.C. athlete that Andrews has come in contact with in the last six months. Someone get that man a Nats winter hat.
Also having a good week? Whichever reporter Harper scoffed after comparing the outfielder’s situation to RGIII’s. Not such a clown question now.
