Cam Newton says he's on a "rapid" pace to recover from ankle surgery.
Feels like we've heard all of this before. To quote a little Shakespeare, "Methinks thou doth protest too much," Cam. The procedure Newton underwent last month to tighten the ligaments in his ankle needs a decent recovery time. While we admire his desire to get back on the field, Newton shouldn't be rushing anything right now. Whether he recovers at a "rapid pace" or not, he'll still be ready once training camp opens, so why not just take it easy? No one is taking your job away, cam. Rest easy now and be healthy for the season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
