I wonder whether it would be Harper or Ankiel if a position player had to pitch. Probably Ankiel.

Bryce is going to be the first player to go 40/40 in multiple seasons

id go with harp cuz he was pitching only a few years ago in CF.  Actually i take that back, i want ankiel to come in and blow out his arm so we can put him on the dl and never hear from him again.

You think he will be beaned?
Nah, Gibson is old school enough that he'd tell Kennedy to stay below the shoulders.  Thigh if Kennedy has good enough control.

I never heard that? Do you have a link or idea when? Obviously I understand if you don't.

That was a while ago of course.

No links. Just more along the lines of the story you linked. That he didn't want to pitch unless it was in earnest

I like how you're sticking to your guns on this :lol:

Not saying I don't believe you - I didn't see the play - I just find it amusing what some people get riled about sometimes :)

When I saw the replay last night, it definitely looked like self defense, the catcher's glove was going to smash him in the face.

i'm actually hoping for a long extra innings game so harper can go all wilson valdez.  except he'll be throwing mid-90's.

wow - Harper pitching in the bottom of the 16th would be something.

The only thing I can come up with is "Harpo" which is pretty lame. I'm sure someone will come up with something suitable.
I hope Bryce didn't get too attached to the town of Syracuse........he ain't going back!

I think "the chosen one" is a pretty good nickname.

i can't imagine anyone getting attached to Syracuse. :)  I just hope he likes D.C. better than NYC for the next 20 years.

there really isn't much left to say about him, just sit back and enjoy.  I'd love to hear from folks who went tonight what it was like when he came up to bat.

MLB Tonight talking about Bryce Harper.  Unfortunately, I missed the first few minutes because they started talking at the end of one hour and into the beginning of the next.   >:(
