Harper's Ferry: Consensus #1 Pick Sets Sail for Majors

Bryce Harper. Phenom. Destroyer of baseballs. The 2010 version of Stephen Strasburg, as expected, was drafted #1 overall in Monday night’s 1st round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft which took place in Secaucus, New Jersey.

'Nova Avoids Shame: Quasi-March Madness Avoided

Sorry Robert Morris, but Cinderella’s slipper does not extend to size fifteen. A fifteen seed has only advanced four times and each of those teams immediately lost in the second round.
