Traffic? What traffic? Bryce Harper and the Nationals skipped all of that and took the subway back from their rained-out game against the Mets on Friday, posting a picture on Instagram.

The Nats have been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately, Harper in particular after his fight with closer Jonathan Papelbon. The team was heavily favored to make the playoffs but a pretty epic collapse down the stretch has the Nats eight games back of the NL East-leading Mets.

Friday night's game was canceled due to rain, getting pushed back to 1:10 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
