Harper’s 8th career home run off Rafael Betancourt in the top of the 9th inning.
I knew Bryce Harper couldn’t get out of town without dialing one long distance in Colorado. He waited until his final at-bat in the four game series to put another notch in his belt. This one tied the game at 10-10 off Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt. The Rockies escaped with an 11-10 victory in 10 innings.
It was almost 100 degrees in Colorado. Factor in the altitude; do you think that everyone was happy to see Harper serve one off the AT&T sign in the back of the Rockies bullpen and silently announce that more baseball was to be played?

FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Harper's camp got in touch with the brewery who makes "Clown Question Bro" beer and now some of the profits will go to a fallen policewoman's memorial fund.
AIN'T NO CLOWN
Well, if the marriage proposal doesn't work out, maybe the young lady who proposed to Bryce Harper in Denver with a sign can settle for one of these? From Bleacher Creature toys, here's the Bryce Harper 14" plush doll.
Only thing missing is the eye black. Oh, and a cut above his eye with fake blood streaming down his face? On second thought, that might be too scary...
According to tweets from two Washington Nationals beat writers, a sign that brilliantly incorporated young megastar Bryce Harper’s infamous and now-trademarked line with a marriage proposal, somehow managed to find its way into prominent placement in front of Harper’s locker in Coors Field’s visitor clubhouse following the Nats’ 11-5 thrashing of the Rockies on Wednesday: [...]
He's found a home
Bryce Harper is young. Bryce Harper is a phenom. Bryce Harper has found his home. According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Harper has fallen in love with Washington D.C. and hopes to play his entire career in the city. Being born and raised in Las Vegas, Harper always considered Vegas as his home. Now, the 19 year-old man has found the place where he...
CLOWN SELECTION, BRO
As captain of the National League's Home Run Derby team, Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp has said he will not invite Nationals phenom Bryce Harper to take part in the festivities.
You may knock Bryce Harper for his perceived immaturity. Or for his inherent arrogance. Or for the way he handles the media. But what he’s doing for the family of a gunned-down police officer might make you want to change your opinion of him.
Celena Hollis, a seven-year vet of the Denver Police Department and a single mother to a 12-year-old daughter, was shot and killed on Sunday...
Available for $21.99 through the site Bleacher Creatures, the Bryce Harper plush doll is a 14-inch-tall testament to major league adorableness. Granted, it lacks Bryce Harper’s trademark eye black and often-seen steely-eyed look of determination. But then again, it is a doll, after all. And Bleacher Creatures does concede in the product description that the [...]
Sounds legit to me. Adam Kilgore via the Washington Post:
About three weeks ago, Harper talked to teammate Ryan Zimmerman about playing in the same city for the duration of his career. Zimmerman, who grew up in Virginia, signed a contract extension this offseason that ensures he will stay in Washington through at least 2019. Harper told him he wanted the same thing in his career...
If you had hopes that the Yankees would one day sign Bryce Harper, you may want to pull back the reigns a little. Apparently, he's pretty happy in DC:“You look at Cal Ripken. You look at Derek Jeter. You look at all the greats that played for one team their whole career,” Harper said last weekend, sitting in the dugout at Camden Yards in Baltimore. “I want to be like that...
In a brief interview with USA Today, Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp said that he wouldn't be choosing Nationals center fielder Bryce Harper to participate in the Home Run Derby in July, saying that there are plenty of other players capable of doing well in the Derby, and that he chose his four member team based on stats. Of course, some fans are getting up in arms about...
We have all heard the story of “That’s a Clown Question, Bro” — the phrase Bryce Harper made that is sweeping all of the internets.
Some of you may even have heard of a brewery that is making ‘Clown Question, Bro’ beer.
This is the story of a local DC resident’s journey, who after an interesting night….found the coveted spot that serves the ale:
Matt Kemp is the captain of the National League Home Run Derby team at next month’s All-Star Game, and he says he’s picked out his squad. Despite his prodigious power, Nationals rookie Bryce Harper didn’t make Kemp’s cut.
“It’s not because he’s a rookie. It’s just that there are other guys out there that are capable,” Kemp told USA TODAY Sports. “I’m not saying...
The big stir is all about the Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper this year, but Mike Trout is having one of the best rookie seasons ever for the Angels. He robbed the Orioles of a home run last night in the Angels 13-1 victory and added four hits. He is also currently leading the American League in batting average. I would say this is a little bit better than his counter...
I hate throwing around harsh language. I'm both a gentleman and a scholar (according to my mom) so only on the rare occasion would I stoop to calling someone that word. But Matt Kemp is , earmuffs kids, a jerkface. I said it. But why? Kemp, the NL Home Run Derby captain, will not pick Bryce Harper to participate in the event he was born to win..."It's not because he...
With about a month before we hit MLB’s July 31st trade deadline, let’s take a look at a few teams with closers who may be moved by that time.
Colorado Rockies: At 37 years old, Rafael Betancourt clearly isn’t the long-term option for the Rockies, but he has been extremely effective since being acquired from the Indians in 2009 (this season’s excellent 2.67 FIP and 4.14 K...
