There's something very wrong with a 2016 Nats team calendar

When scoring a baseball game, an error on the shortstop goes in the book as "E6," and an error on the right fielder is written as "E9." But does anyone know how to score an error committed by the person in charge of putting together a team calendar? If so, let us know, because whoever assembled a 2016 Nationals calendar made a monstrous mistake while doing so.

Take a look at the cover of the calendar here (UPDATE 10:30 a.m.: This is not an official team calendar. The headline has been changed to reflect this.), and see if you can spot what's wrong with it (hint: it should really not take you long at all):

Yeah, uh, that is not Nationals Park, and that is not Washington, D.C; that is actually Fenway Park, and that is actually Boston, Mass. Well, whoever did this at least put a baseball stadium on the front, right?

Obviously, unless there's some secret deal going on between the Nats and the Red Sox in which Boston is going to give away their historic park to Bryce Harper and Co., the cover is totally wrong. Can Dusty Baker fix this, too?

Bryce Harper wants Tony Romo to predict his future after AFC championship game

Bryce Harper wants Tony Romo to predict his future after AFC championship game

Bryce Harper has been having a little fun on Twitter lately with his fans, who are still anxiously waiting to hear which MLB team the coveted free agent will sign with this season. 

And the 26-year-old slugger's jokes continued through the AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. 

The Patriots' 37-31 overtime win over the Chiefs was broadcasted on CBS, so former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was calling the game, along with Jim Nantz. Since Romo joined the broadcast booth for the 2017 season, he's repeatedly proven he can read a defense before a quarterback does and predict a play before it unfolds. 

He did it again during the AFC championship matchup, and fans watching were stunned at his accuracy. And that brings us to Harper, who chimed in with a joke about Romo's spot-on predictions.

So, does this mean Harper knows what his future team is?! Maybe he's growing as tired of the anticipation as fans (especially Nationals fans) are. 

Recently, he's been responding on Twitter to discussions about where he'll end up with shrugging and questioning emojis -- making light of the offseason's biggest mystery. 

After Romo's proven history of being able to predict the future on the NFL side with incredible accuracy, maybe he does know Harper's future too. Here's a look at some of his predictions from the Patriots-Chiefs game, as well as from his first couple seasons in the booth.

Bryce Harper's longtime friend Kris Bryant says Harper isn't headed for Cubs

Bryce Harper's longtime friend Kris Bryant says Harper isn't headed for Cubs

After weeks of twists and turns and not enough information for any Nationals fan's satisfaction, the Chicago Cubs seem to be out of the race for free agent Bryce Harper.

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant seemingly confirmed the news on Friday night from the opening ceremonies of the 2019 Cubs Convention.

"He's not signing here," Bryant said as he sat down with NBC Sports Chicago. 

Though there have been no official reports of whether or not the Cubs are completely out in the race to sign Harper, a word from one of Harper's longtime friends shouldn't be brushed aside.

Bryant and Harper took the field together in the 2016 MLB All-Star game, and faced off in the 2017 NLDS Cubs-Nats matchup. 

The pair have known each other since grade schoool, and played for rival high schools in Las Vegas. But despite their history, Bryant says that they haven't chatted much about the situation otherwise, choosing to focus on preserving their friendship.

"I never bring it up to him," Bryant admitted. "I try to be a good friend to him, and not talk about baseball when he doesn't want to talk about baseball."

"Whatever happens, I wish [him] the best."

You can see more of Bryant's interview with NBCSC below.
