Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals’ lineup on Sunday

Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper sat out Friday and Saturday after undergoing a procedure to remove an ingrown toenail from his right foot, but he’s back in action for Sunday’s series finale against the Cubs.

Harper felt some lingering discomfort in his toe while taking batting practice on Saturday afternoon, but he’s a trouper and it’s not like you can aggravate an ingrown toenail that has already been removed.

Harper, 20, is sporting a .302/.383/.629 batting line, 10 home runs and 21 RBI in 33 games this season. He has also scored 22 runs. The Nationals entered play Sunday with a 20-16 record — one game back of the Braves in the NL East standings.

    The Nats announcers are very happy because now they can climax while masturbating in the booth during games again.

      Harper is amazing. How he could handle that pain and still play eludes me. What does concern me and is not adequately discussed by the on-air talent is the status of RZim’s shoulder. That does not look right. He’s not throwing with a fluid motion and, if it continues, could lead to further damage. I’m wondering if the team is properly using that player or protecting him for the future.

        sounds like the Nats broadcasters aren’t the only ones climaxing to Harper, eh ennurudy? Got a thing for him, do ya?

    “Harper felt some lingering discomfort in his toe while taking batting practice on Saturday afternoon, but he’s a trooper and it’s not like you can aggravate an ingrown toenail that has already been removed.”

    Maybe you can’t aggravate an ingrown toenail that’s already been removed, but it’s still painful as hell!

    P.S. It’s TROUPER, not trooper!

    Having had that procedure, I salute the young man. He’s much more adverse to pain than me. That hurts like hell, but it didn’t seem to bother Harper that much. I would have been fearful of fouling one off that toe and be carried crying back to the dugout.
