Found April 21, 2013 on FatManWriting:
Bryce Harper was supposed to be a big deal when he was drafted by the Washington Nationals out of junior college. There have been plenty of athletes that were thought to be the next big thing when they were coming through the ranks in high school and/or college (or junior college). So in that respect Harper is nothing special-- except he is actually backing it up. Last season he had a solid rookie campaign, and so far this season he is doing a tremendous job of building on it. As of the end of action Saturday he is batting .371 with seven home runs--two of which he added against the Mets--and 14 RBIs. Yeah. I think it is safe to say this kid is the real deal.

Just another day at the office for Bryce Harper on Saturday: 3-for-3, 2 home runs, 3 RBI, including that monster go-ahead home run in the eighth to bail out the Nationals against the Mets. According to hittracker, the ball travelled 433 feet. Here's Davey: "Harper was amazing today. He crushed a couple balls. What a day he had. That last one he hit off (Mets left-hander...

Bryce Harper Upset Nationals Sold His Opening Day Jersey

  Nationals slugger Bryce Harper was ‘less than enthused’ about the Nationals decision to sell his opening day jersey online for $13,025 without even asking him. Harper took to twitter to bash his team for the selling his sweaty…musty…dirty…jersey? Ummm Bryce…why didn’t you just take it home with you?   They just take my jersey away from me and don’t ask if I want...

Someone Please Buy Bryce Harper Some Curtains!

Bryce Harper may have a large amount of money, but he struggles with the same plight many folks do every morning when the sun rises.  Someone just needs to buy the phenom some curtains so we don’t have to see his dungeon of a bedroom anymore. #bbpBox_326356107184443392 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_326356107184443392 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }Hate...

It’s becoming aparent that Bryce Harper will be a Mets Killer

Bryce Harper launched home runs number 6 and 7 on Saturday afternoon. On Saturday afternoon at Citi Field, the Nationals needed a little something extra to slip by the Mets. Gio Gonzalez imploded, Ryan Zimmerman headed to the disabled list, and Bryce Harper hit two home runs, the second being a mammoth shot that won the game for the Nationals 7-6 (and won us yet another parlay bet...

Is Bryce Harper Turning into the Next Chipper Jones?

I had the privilege of catching a game at Citi Field this weekend between the New York Mets and Washington Nationals with some of my friends from Rising Apple. It was a fun day at the park, even if the Amazins weren’t able to complete a comeback, losing to the defending NL East Champions, 7-6. One of the bright spots for the Nationals was outfielder Bryce Harper, who went 3-for...

Harper Mashes, Stammen Impresses, Gio Melts Down, Nats Win 10th Game

Ryan Zimmerman was a scratch for the second consecutive game today, and he's getting an MRI on his hamstring. Never a good sign for the Nats franchise third baseman. The game itself was a roller coaster ride of a game throughout on the way to a Nats 7-6 victory. The Nats offense was able to get off to a quick start. Ian Desmond hit his third homer of the year on a first pitch...

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 50

It's finally here. The Nats Talk On The Go podcast has hit its first real milestone, and we've commemorated it with a really, really long episode. We were forced to take last week off, so we had a lot to discuss around the Nats recent struggles and triumphs. We talk about pitching, defense, and heap praise upon Bryce Harper, Ross Detwiler, and Jordan Zimmermann. There'...

Nats Lose Series and Drop Undisciplined Game To Mets

It was Anthony Rendon's major league debut on Sunday, which certainly didn't bring on the national fanfare that Bryce Harper's debut did almost exactly one year ago, but it certainly garnered a lot of excitement from Nationals fans. Despite some very strong pitching by the Nats, the offense couldn't come alive as they dropped a 2-0 game to the Mets. The Nats are now...
