Found June 16, 2012 on Nationals Enquirer:
Above, a photo of Bryce Harper in a tuxedo with CNN's Wolf Blitzer at Saturday night's Washington Nationals Dream Foundation Gala (photo via @wolfblitzer). Wolf is, like, old enough to be Bryce's great, great, great, great grandfather or something. Of course, this photo was taken just a few hours after Harper's worst game as a pro, in which he went 0-7 with 5 Ks and ended the 14 inning heartbreaking loss against the Yankees with a first-pitch-swinging ground out with the tying run on first. Yeah. Here's Davey Johnson on Harper's awful day at the plate: "This is probably his first really tough game where he was overanxious. That's showing some of his inexperience. He was really amped up against Pettitte. I've never seen him swing at balls out of the zone and he was chasing balls. You get in that mode where you try to make something happen and that's part of youth." (Davey Johnson, via MLB.com, 6/16/2012) Befriend...

A "Bryce call me maybe?" sign at Nationals Park...

It was only a matter of time before someone went out on a limb and held up a "Call Me Maybe?" sign for Bryce Harper at a baseball game. And it finally happened during Friday's Nats-Yankees game at Nationals Park. Boom.

Harper’s Bazaar

The Washington Nationals are without a doubt one of the best stories of the year.  And, of course, you can’t talk about the Nationals without inevitably turning to the direct youth infusion that is Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper.  Probably the most amazing thing about these two guys is how well they seem to be handling the pressure at their relatively young ages. Ever since...

Dustin Pedroia planning to let ‘clown question, bro’ reporter have it

Bryce Harper’s hilarious “That’s a clown question, bro” response to a reporter in Toronto led to one of the catchiest phrases of the year. Although Harper has been the object of our scrutiny here at LBS, we can’t say we blame him for his response; he was being set up with a dumb question by a reporter who was insensitive to the youngster’s religious beliefs. Another...

According to ESPN.com, the Red Sox second baseman knows which reporter asked Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper about whether or not the 19-year-old was going to have a celebratory beer following a game...

Bronx Bummers

(Bryce Harper looking dejected after Sunday's loss to the Yankees. Screencap via YES Network/MLB.com) Yankees 4, Nationals 1: Bronx Cheer. If this weekend's series was a measuring stick, then the Yankees beat the Nats over the head with the damn thing. Swept. Michael Morse & Ryan Zimmerman go a combined 0-9 on Sunday; 5-27 for the weekend. "...

Rookie Rating: Harper vs.Trout

This season is great one to see two amazing rookies go through the season battling it out for the rookie of the year. To my understanding, both Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are amazing prospects who can produce tremendous power at the plate. Both are outfielders as well and they are not to shabby in the field. Trout who is a year older at 20, was drafted at the 25 spot to the Angels...
