From NY Daily News' writer Mark Feinsand's article entitled, "Yankees' Alex Rodriguez knows how it feels to be Nationals rookie phenom Bryce Harper":
"'I love big talent,' [Alex] Rodriguez said. 'I love unique talent. I’m just a baseball fan like you guys are. To see a 19-year-old do some of the things that he’s doing, it’s pretty darn special. I’m excited to see [Bryce Harper].
"'He’s the kind of guy I would pay my money to watch play. I’m sure well after I’m done, I’ll be paying my money to watch him play and break all the records.'"
• Game time 7:05 pm EDT. Gio Gonzalez vs Phil Hughes. We'll be at Nats Park all afternoon...
