Yup, both good points Harper is on fire but even last year's awful season

he was April player of the month in MLB. I think Zimm being hot makes Murphy and Harper even more dangerous. The Grand Slam that Zimm hit on Wed was after they intentionally walked Murphy to load the bases. Don't see that happening again now after Cubs did it effectively last year to him.

It sounds like Murphy could play tonight even but I am worried this is a continuation of his nagging injury from last season. Turner coming back will be huge but sounds unlikely to start tonight or maybe all weekend. Werth groin is a bit scary too but if he is okay that lineup will be scary good once Turner is back.

No need to rush any of them right now with the way the starters are pitching and with Harper and Zimm carrying the team in the meantime.
