Wire Taps: Nationals’ Bryce Harper back in MVP form?; Trea Turner’s cycle; Koda Glover to DL

With one game left on the Nationals’ ten-game road trip, their 8-1. You read that right. One more with the Rockies then it’s home to face the Mets.

Okay, so holding on isn’t always impressive, but is it wrong to feel really really proud that the team managed to hold on to a Coors Field lead?

Here’s what’s cooking at Coors Field.

Is Bryce back in MVP form?
Nats fans anxiously waited for 2015 Bryce Harper to return last year. Only problem there: he never showed. Even though it's just April, is it possible, if not likely, that the swag is returning?

Turner hits for the Nats' first cycle in nine years
Single, double, homer, triple was the way the hits fell for Nats shortstop Trea Turner.

Because things weren't bad enough, Koda Glover is now hurt
Koda Glover felt pain in his left hip two nights ago, the same one that hurt him all of last September. The Nats played it safe and immediately sent him to the 10-day DL.

Former Nats GM among cuts at ESPN
ESPN fired about 100 people yesterday (yikes). Former Nats GM Jim Bowden was among those let loose.

The Nats' bullpen is... not good
It's rough all over for the Nats' pen. And when we say all over, we mean ALL OVER. Except for our lord and savior Matt Albers.

Who is this Daniel Murphy?
Murphy was good for the New York Mets. Keyword: Good. Murphy is incredible for the Nationals. Keyword: Incredible.
