Despite Young Stars Nats Not Drawing a Crowd

Even though the Nats are in first place they are still only filling about half the stadium:

This is unfortunate.  They are a really exciting team right now.  Even with a slew of injuries to some of their best players, they are winning.  Two of their young phenoms are also electric to watch.  19-year old Bryce Harper brings an intensity to the game, which few can match.  Pete Rose (aka Charlie Hustle) would be impressed.  

Harper has a canon of an arm (here he is throwing a strike to home plate from the outfield: and is proving to be quite fielder in the outfield.  All this even though he was trained as a catcher!  In addition, the guy hits the ball hard every time.  He hit the game winner last night and is batting .375. 

Stephen Strasburg was also National League pitcher of the month in April.  He's 2-0 with a 1.13 Earned Run Average.  What do these guys have to do to get some attention?  Have Robert Griffin III throw out the first pitch?  

Eventually people will start to believe this team is legit and this will be a tough ticket to get.  Get out there and give them a look before that becomes true.
