I have no criticisms of Harper, I just think the hype machine latches onto certain prospects and blow expectations completely out of proportion.
I can see that. I mean no one should be considered the GOAT until they prove it in the majors. I'm just saying that Harper is a beast. Based on what he did in college (mostly with a wooden bat) and his overwhelmingly successful stint in the AFL I would say that as of now, he is 100% living up to the hype. The same thing could have been said about Strasburg last year who was the #1 cure for erectile dysfunction among baseball scouts. The rest is history.
