Washington Nationals: Top 5 Most Anticipated Series in 2019
April 2 &3: Home Series Against the Philadelphia Phillies
You probably could have guessed that this series is #1.
Like it or not, a ticket to see the Nationals vs. Phillies on April 2 will be a hot commodity in the D.C. area as Bryce Harper will make his return to the team that drafted and developed him.
The question is whether Harper will receive cheers, boos, or a mixture of both?
It appeared that most fans would accept Harper leaving to a west coast team, perhaps the San Francisco Giants or the San Diego Padres.
However, signing the most expensive contract in North American sports history with the team’s division rival may have been a deal breaker.
What makes this series even more exciting is the potential matchup between Harper and Nationals ace Scherzer.
After Scherzer’s scheduled start on March 28, he will have four days of rest before April 2, and five days of rest before April 3.
Should those two square off, it would be a fan’s dream.
Hopefully, for the Nationals fans, it would end in Scherzer stalking around the mound, or simply walking off of it and into the first-base dugout.
