I don't think he belongs to that branch.  But then, I don't really know.

I was just being a wise-ass. I know mainline Mormonism doesn't preach polygamy anymore (except, I believe, in the afterlife).

Being a Mormon doesn't stop Harper from having a girlfriend

Neither can he.  (Mormon, remember?)

Please. He's unbelievably restrained as far as I'm concerned. I see nothing wrong with anything he's done. I would be hypocritical to say otherwise.

greatest poster in the history of boards.  now we can close the thread.

and p.s. youk is a douche.

Since Rizzo has shown he doesn't care if we make it into OCTOBER....

They should send Bryce down and let him grow up!

For what, like three days?  The MiLB season is nearly over, hell the playoffs all start next Wed-Thur-Fri depending on the league.

Been a long time since I was 19 but I do remember it vaguely ....  having a girlfriend and not getting laid is probably worse that not having a girlfriend.

I'd rather see him show anger and frustration from not getting the job done rather than just accepting it meekly. That said, he should tone it down a bit, but he is who he is. Get used to it.

But there's a lot of room between being Manny Acta and throwing your helmet and having it end up anywhere near the ump. If Bryce tosses the helmet down the line towards the outfield corner, as opposed to back and near the ump, maybe he doesn't get run. OK, CB still probably runs him for that, but many other umps would ignore it.

No, he's gotta work out his current big-boy streak up here first.

I imagine NY'ers are outraged that he was kept up until he passed the Mick.  They're still simmering over how the Orioles allowed Ripken to break Gehrig's record.

Meanwhile, the spirit of #7 just raised a cold one in his honor.

I think Bryce has read this board... He's driving like a bull on a mad parade.

Actually, the LDS church doesn't preach or practice a doctrine of polygamy in the afterlife. 

As far as Bryce is concerned, he is quoted in the Nationals Journal section of the Post online as recognizing that he needs to grow up a bit:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/nationals-journal/post/bryce-harper-ejected-for-first-time-nationals-address-his-frustrations-i-just-need-to-grow-up-in-that-mentality-a-little-bit/2012/08/30/26cad5dc-f286-11e1-892d-bc92fee603a7_blog.html

Harper is fully aware of his behavior. Though he thought there was one out and was grounding into an inning-ending double play, Harper knows he tossed his helmet down and that caused the ejection. And he knows he can’t continue reacting so forcefully when the result doesn’t go his way.

“I just need to stop getting [angry] and just live with it and there’s nothing you can change,” he said. “I just need to grow up in that mentality a little bit. Try not to bash stuff in and things like that I’ve always done my whole life and those need to change.”

I'll add this to the Bryce maturity argument;

I watch a lot of SEC baseball. SEC baseball is high quality, the stands often are full, and there is definite pressure. Lots of freshman have laced up on SEC teams past few years, and I'm pretty sure no coaches would put up with half of Bryce's antics.

I like him, but you can tell his high school and JUCO coaches never drew a line in the sand with him. I hope that Zimmerman or Davey Johnson has a sit down with him and tells him to chill out. You can play hard and go 100% while not breaking bats every strikeout, throwing your helmet down, and throwing tantrums in the tunnel.

Actually you don't know crap.

I can prove to you that his JUCO coach, Tim Chambers drew the line in the sand with him. Just let me know.

Proof in an Internet argument? That'd be different.

His current streak is obviously inspired by Mitt Romney.
