WE learned that Bryce Harper is back to his 2015 magical form. After becoming the youngest unanimous MVP winner in 2015, Harper fell off slightly in 2016. Feat not Nats fans, he has reached base in nine straight appearances and smoked the Cardinals for 4/4, 3 RBI’s and two walks on Monday.

WE learned that history is on the Dubs side. Clemson, North Carolina and the New England Patriots all faced the heartbreak of just falling short last season in winning the title, but rebounded to claim honours in 2017. As they near full strength look for the Warriors to make it four from four on the revenge tour.
WE learned that Frank Mason is officially the Wooden Award winner. Mason was named the award winner on Friday night, becoming the consensus national player of the year after sweeping the awards from various media outlets.

WE learned there is now a clear MVP favourite. People are saying that just cause Russ can put up triple doubles that shouldn’t take away from Harden’s success because Harden is only two rebounds away from doing the same thing. But you know what, he is still two rebounds away and people may think it’s a small difference, but it’s still a difference.
AND finally we learned that Tim Tebow might not be a flash in the pan. After creaming a homer in his first minor league at bat, Tebow back it up with his 2nd one just two games later. It is worth mentioning that Tebow is batting at an average of just .200, but he could still turn into a decent ball player with practice and more at bats.
