If Washington DC's mayor is any indicator, Bryce Harper should expect a traitor's welcome at Nationals Park on Tuesday night. Harper put Nationals baseball on the map and brought publicity and attention to baseball in D.C. that they could only dream about before his arrival.

Harper went on to be named National League Rookie of the Year in 2012, was a six-time All-Star and won the NL MVP in 2015. He put up historic numbers for a player his age and helped the Nationals reach the postseason four times, though they never advanced out of the NLDS. That offer, of course, was not $330 and included deferrals, lowering the present-day value. Another fan had a sign that read, "Pardon Papelbon". "Because I want to get it done, be back in D.C., and be done with it'". Before his first at-bat, Harper was welcomed to the plate with a chorus of boos.

Harper was greeted by boos during a pregame video tribute. Point blank, period. That statement is fact, and if Ted Lerner and the Nationals ownership wanted it as badly as Bryce did, he would be running out to right field in the top of the first inning tomorrow night giving a bow to the Nats fans in the outfield seats.

The emotions surrounding this game are higher than any in recent Nationals history, and the atmosphere at Nationals Park is going to be electric. Again, the fans were ecstatic with the result.

Officials said that the Indian Army retaliated "befittingly" to cross-border shelling by Pakistan on Tuesday also. However, he said the Border Security Force ( BSF ) is giving befitting replies to Pakistan.

It seemed like the hate only made Harper stronger. In the fifth, Harper did his best to start a rally, swatting a Scherzer curve into right field for a double, but Segura was unable to score all the way from first base.

"The city of DC was home", Harper wrote in part of the lengthy post. He was very happy. I got it. We can build off that. But during the eighth inning, Harper crushed a monster home run to the second deck in right-center field, quieting the jeers he had been hearing all night.

With Nationals fans screaming their lungs out in joy, the Nationals' official Twitter account sent out the overplayed Ariana Grande "thank u, next" tweet. Cheering for your guys and booing the other guys is fun and makes the game more interesting. According to the column by Svrluga, the offer was for 12 years and $250 million, and the last payment of the deal would not come until 2072.
