He should be cut tomorrow. Bryce Harper is a ****y piece of trash who disrespects the game and will live a life of pure suckitude because he can't hit .300 at 19.

For the love of the gods, take your pills Smithian. ;)

As an observer with no baseball expertise, here is my opinion on Harper;

Pettite owned his soul on the low and away pitches. Harper that game and the next few chased those pitches. He eventually made an adjustment to let those pitches go. Although the adjustment was made, umpires rang him up a few times on borderline low and away pitches. He is basically damned if he does and damned if he doesn't on those pitches. He can't hit it but isn't getting the calls when he takes.

NBA that is apparent birdman's car- I was looking for a picture of Karl Malone's truck since I vaguely remember him driving a tricked out tractor trailer cab

I used to live in Poway where a lot of the San Diego Chargers lived. They were all bowling at the place down the road from me and I saw some in there at the bar. Once of them was driving one of these, but it was Silver and all tricked out with TVs and a system and what not.

Hm, well with those rigs he might want to set aside at least a few million for gas, so maybe he should look for a 1.5 billion dollar truck instead  :mg:

Bo Porter told me before the game that Bryce runs the bases like the tenth batter on a t-ball team where he knows he's the last guy to bat for the inning so he never stops running.

Good analogy. I love t-ball batting orders where it's basically reverse order of skill.

you know, it's pretty rare when a game goes by without harper doing something spectacular.  I've never seen a player who changes a game like he does.

I'm officially offering him a 20 year, $400 million dollar deal. Flat $20 million every year. I don't even know if you can buy out pre-arbitration years but I just did.

Greatest post ever on the Internet. Shut the forum down immediately. This is high watermark of this place.

Also, that contract should include a provision whereby members of this Forum, (who have posted praises of Bryce in this thread), should collectively receive 10% of that contract, or $2 million per year divided amongst us.  (I'll take an extra share for coming up with this idea.)

They called that a triple in the 10th and not a double and taking 3d on the error?  OK, I guess, but he looked dead to us if the ball did not get away. 

I'll take the psycho dash for 3d there, though.  1 out, so it is important to get to 3d to set up a potential score on a fly, and if he failed, it was low cost because we were already tied.  I don't know if it was simply aggressiveness or just a really sharp eye for the OF's likelihood of making the play and his situational awareness.  Harper does not seem stupid aggressive when he makes these plays, or at least he does not seem stupid more than once.  I think he has a fantastic sense of the game.

Fielder never had a chance to make a play on the ball until after it bounced away.

That was a clean triple. If Wright had made the catch at 3B it would have been extremely close. The ball got away from Wright but Harper did not advance an extra base - to home which would have ended the game right there, so no error involved.

Seats are in the S&S club over 3d base, so it looked like wright could have made the catch and gotten the out, but frankly, my perspective was not the best and I did not see any replays. I can see where I could be wrong, but I thought he should have been out at 3d, thus a double and an E on the throw (or maybe Wright).

I thought interference should have been called on Wright. He basically pinned Harper down

Wonder what Wright and Harper said to each other right after the play?   There was a short dialogue and Wright had his glove over his mouth.    In my mind, it was probably along the lines of,  "Are you OK, bro?"
