Harper out of lineup again

Associated Press
Bryce Harper watches last night's game from the dugout.
His big toe still in pain after a procedure yesterday to remove an ingrown toenail, Bryce Harper is once again out of the Nationals' starting lineup for this afternoon's game against the Cubs.

Harper hoped to return today after missing the series opener, but his toe hasn't healed quite enough yet.

"Harp's still a little tender, and he wanted to wait until he hit on the field," manager Davey Johnson said. "If it's that tender, I'm not starting him. So he's not in the lineup."

With Harper and Jayson Werth (who was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list today) sidelined, Johnson is forced to again cobble together a makeshift outfield that includes Tyler Moore in left field and Roger Bernadina in right field flanking Denard Span.

At least he can pinch-hit if needed, and we now have the full 25 in the dugout. Lets hope we don't need him

Go Nats!!

After I got back from the game yesterday, I replayed the game on DVD amd FP made a comment about an article Kilgore wrote on Bryce Harper and how he developed his swing. I've looked in the Post's Nats Journal and can't find the article. Anyone else looked for it? If you found it, where was it located and what's the title?
