The Nationals took home a big win on Wednesday in their final home game against the Marlins 9-3. However, fans might have just said their final goodbyes to Bryce Harper along with it.
“This is my home. This is my city.”

Harper made his MLB debut with the Nationals in 2012 at merely 19-years old, but his time may be coming to an end as he is due to become a free-agent at the end of the 2018 MLB season. The 25-year old outfielder put on his white Nationals uniform more than three hours before the game started, but went 0 for 4, along with two strikeouts.
Before the game began, Harper spoke about his emotions going into what may be his last game in Nationals Park.
Harper is unsure of what the future holds, but is heart will always lie in Washington. The future is still bright for the 25-year old MLB player as he collected his 100th RBI for the first time in his career. Harper expresses that he’s not scared of what the future holds.
Reports claim that top prospect outfielder Victor Robles, could be Harpers replacement. On Wednesday’s game, Robles went 4 for 5, including a three run homer and a two run double. With Robles being a large addition to the team, the future of the Nationals team looks bright.
Victor Robles has 3 hits. Adrian Sanchez has 3 hits. Spencer Kieboom has 3 RBI. Who says this lineup needs Bryce Harper?

During his time in Washington, Harper went from 2012 National League Rookie of the Year to 2015 National League MVP, playing in more than 900 games. After a devastating season for nationals fans, could this be his final goodbye?
