Man I love that kid :lol: He'll make aggressive mistakes, but there will be breathtaking plays too. I'm also anxious to see him rob some homers once he becomes more confortable in the field.

bryce loses way to many balls in the sun.  I get that it happens, but it seems to be happening ridiculously often for him.

I get what you're saying, but at least today, everyone was having trouble with it.

Hasn't been a catcher for too long (compared to the older gentlemen on the field) but even with this "hinderance" he's still way better than Morse or Werth. I'd imagine it'll just come with age and experience. And he can probably get some tips from Werth, Brown, or Bernie.

Why get tips from Werth if he's already way better than him?   :shrug:

Because he might have tips but can't execute them - many successful coaches are not strong at their sport but have the ability to teach it well to others. He also may know what other people do, that's all.

I'm just busting your balls LO.  :lol:  But I disagree with you that Harper is a better OF than Werth.

He might be one day and he is more talented than Werth, but he's not there yet.  Check back this time next year.

:) You could truly argue for either, Werth has way more experience, sure, but Harper is just a speedy little bugger with more potential (again, my opinion). I'd love for him to turn into a Bernadina level OF.

Hopefully we can agree they're both better than Morse :lol:

Also it's probably been mentioned more than once in this thread but I realized today that one of the reasons Bryce is hot again is that he's more patient during his ABs. He doesn't seem to swing at the first pitch like he used to. Glad to see that Bryce back. Lots more fun to watch than an impatient, frustrated Bryce.

Definitely.

But if you keep saying that you want him to turn into a Bernadina level Of Linty is going to rip you apart.   :)

If Harper can accumulate 1 WAR in the next 20 games, he could have the greatest teenage season of all time:

As of Thursday, Cliff Corcoran of SI.com didn't have Bryce Harper in his top 3 NL Rookies, and he apparently didn't merit a mention.  Laugh here



Tell Cliff to suck it



Or better yet, to start recognizing a historically great season.

Anyone know where to get the best deal on a Harper jersey?

I found it cheaper to buy jerseys on the MLB store or another online store - when I went to the team store in the stadium the Women's jerseys cost $110, but they were $75 online.

And MLB.com is having a 10% off jerseys today (not their greatest sale but it's a sale), so Replica BH Jerseys are $90, Authentic BH Jerseys are $228. Other places to shop include Dick's Sporting Goods, Modells, and any other local sporting center.

But all in all, if you can catch the MLB store when they're offering a 20-25% discount, that's your best bet. I'd just hop on that website every couple of days to see if they're offering a good, useful deal.

EDIT: I have no clue about knockoffs :shrug: but they're obviously cheaper, but of questionable quality - make sure you find a site/company that has good replicas before you spend money on it, of course.
