PLAYERS: Bryce Harper
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
From the moment Bryce Harper put a reporter in his place for asking a dumb question during the Nationals recent trip to Toronto, everyone knew great things were on the horizon. As you have likely heard, a reporter asked Harper on Tuesday if he planned to have a celebratory beer after Washington’s win over the Blue Jays since the drinking age is 18 in Toronto. Harper, who happens to be a Mormon, simply responded by telling him, “That’s a clown question, bro.” The quote became an instant classic, and the Denver Beer Co. has already put it to good use.

Video: Bryce Harper asked “Clown question”

Hear that, Squawker Jon? That...

What if Trout and Harper are better than the Three Bite Rule?

When my grandfather passed away last spring, the family had to clear out and sell the wonderful little house in northern Virginia that he had lived in (with my grandmother, until 2008) since sometime in the sixties. Among the few things that I ended up with, being the baseball guy, was my pick of whatever I thought was salvageable of a large, worn stack of sports magazines that had...
