Found August 30, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Washington Nationals rookie outfielder Bryce Harper was ejected from Wednesday night's game against the Miami Marlins when he tossed his helmet to the ground after grounding into a double play in the ninth inning.

Your browser does not support iframes.

Despite the fact that Harper had already hit two home runs in the game and the Nationals had an 8-4 lead in the ninth, he let his frustration get the best of him. Harper tossed his helmet to the ground, and first base umpire CB Bucknor tossed Harper from the game. It was the first ejection of Harper's career.

We've seen Harper slam his bat and shatter it several times this month, and now this. Hopefully Nationals manager Davey Johnson can get Harper to work out his anger management issues in time for the postseason.

Cardinals meet Bryce Harper, your Nail in the Coffin just landed in the Bullpen

With one thunderous swing of his bat, the St. Louis Cardinals season went from bad to worse. In fact, stick a long overdue fork in these guys. They’re finished. I don’t care that they were 10 games out at this point last year. I don’t care that they got a ring last year. The 19-year old phenom just buried them. And I of course was stupid enough to stream Jaime Garcia on my...

Bryce Harper In Gangnam-Style MLB Postseason Commercial

Despite this very helpful Know Your Meme page, I’m not entirely sure what Gangnam style is, but if it entails Bryce Harper getting humped by Derek Jeter on national television I’m all about it (via Big League Stew). The commercial: Also, why they used Jim Thome for the O’s instead of Adam Jones is beyond me, but I’m glad Baltimore’s still in the picture.
