Nationals

Bryce Harper is on a tear to begin the 2015 season. But, according to a report, even he doesn't think he's the best player in the majors -- yet.
Fresh off a 2-1 victory Monday, the Nationals try to beat the Cubs at Wrigley Field again Tuesday night behind Jordan Zimmermann. Join the conversation on Nats Insider!
