I'm sure someone somewhere will say he ran too fast.

Showing off his speed. It's not showboating... it's motorboating. Arrogant bastard. How dare he motorboat Tim Stauffer.

I like that Bob said, "There's number one" instead of his normal call.

The line so far: .238   .319   .460   

Harper's .780 OPS trails only Werth and LaRoche among starters, (he's also behind Tracy, Strasburg, and Gorzy)

His .460 slugging percentage trails only LaRoche.

This kid is a complete and total freak of nature.

Complaining about him running too fast?!? What a load of bollocks! He wouldn't have scored that run if he stopped at second. More people should be busting their a$$ like he is every game. Half the time your just waiting around anyway. When you have to run, RUN!!!!!

Bryce at a UFC event at the Patriot Center this week:



"It’s good to be Washington Nationals’ outfielder Bryce Harper these days. You would figure hitting his first Major League homer would be the biggest thrill he would receive this week, but au contraire my friend. Bryce Harper went to UFC on Fuel 3 fights – which I am assuming is the UFC’s equivalant of WWE Superstars – and got his picture taken with ring girl/Playboy playmate, Brittney Palmer.

I have no idea how old Palmer is – but considering Bryce Harper is only 19 – job well done, Mr. Harper. Even though they took the picture together, Palmer insisted there was nothing more than that. In fact, she called out Terez Owens on Twitter for even insinuating something could happen, stating “Watch your wording, buddy” Right from of your/you’re, and a comma after wording!? Beauty and brains, apparently.

Man, I love Bryce Harper. Even if I wasn’t a fan of the Washington Nationals, I’d still be a Bryce Harper fanboy. He just oozes out so much greatness on the field and off. Now, I’m assuming Brittney Palmer isn’t lying about hooking up with the phenom, but you know Bryce Harper is slaying some dragons right now. I’m sure rumors will be abundant about who he is dating soon. I just hope he chooses wisely, because he gets to pick anyone from the litter.

Enough of Bryce Harper off the field, let me pontificate about him on the field. At 19, no one should be this good. I don’t care if his swing has holes, nor do I care how much torque he has when he swings through the zone. He just has the raw power and ability to do anything he wants with the baseball, plus he’s equipped with a laser-rocket arm and amazing speed. Most players would be happy to have just one of Bryce Harper’s attributes, let alone the five tools he possesses.

Coming into tonight’s game – where he already hit a triple – Harper has a .742 OPS in 68 plate appearances. Not bad for someone who can’t even gamble or drink yet."

Pretty sure he's a Mormon and can't gamble or drink ever. I wish him all the Playmates in the world, though.

The one bright spot in all of the injuries is having to bring Harper to the major leagues ahead of schedule.  There's an air of excitement to any ballgame with his presence.

Bryce Harper quite literally lives THAT life. When I say THAT life, he just has it made. He's 19, and can pretty much get any female he wants in the world, which is about all any 19 year old would ask for.

Yeah I heard this too. I definitely also heard him drop a couple of F-bombs after striking out at one point.

Complaining about him running too fast?!?

By far the stupid remark I've heard about Harper so far (and, not surprisingly, it came from that tool Ken Rosenthal on MLBN) is that "some baseball people think he swings too hard and he may end up hurting his back."

It's called bat speed and quick hands, dimwit.

Anyone here mildly concerned about him getting sent down when Morse returns? I hope he is up to stay.

They aren't sending him down unless his BA is under .200

Why would you be concerned they aren't going to send him down so that Nady or Shark or Derosa can start! Once Morse comes back Harper will move to RF and have Morse at LF... I don't think Davey is in favor of starting his old vets over potential superstar youngsters.

Harper already is in RF on a nightly basis.

And it might not be a Davey decision but more a Rizzo decision.
