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.
