Noah Syndergaard mocks Bryce Harper's D.C. slip up

During his introductory press conference today in Clearwater, FL., Bryce Harper was introduced as the newest addition to the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

A day after he was officially introduced as the newest member of the Phillies and his jersey hit the team's store, Harper's jersey has broken the 24-hour sales record for a jersey launch in any sport. Harper and the Phillies agreed to a $330 million, 13-year contract, the largest deal in baseball history.

Harper had a little slip up during the press conference, saying he wants to "bring a title back to D.C.", which is decidedly not where the Phillies play. Even though he misspoke when he said he wanted to bring DC a win, we knew what he meant.

US General: No F-35 jet sale to Turkey if it buys Russian Federation system
Last month, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Ankara's purchase of Russia's S-400 missile defense system was a done deal.

The Mets will - again - have to face Bryce Harper 19 regular-season times, as they can not escape him and will not escape him for 13 years, barring a trade.

Syndergaard's Instagram post made light of Bryce's error. With Harper staying in the NL East, these two will see plenty more of each other going forward.
