Those who were expecting nonstop quotes mixed in with a solid amount of controversy once Bryce Harper got called up to the big leagues have been extremely disappointed. Harper has said and done all the right things since joining the Nationals. That is, if you ask anyone besides Ozzie Guillen. The Marlins manager was furious with Harper on Sunday but would not say what had him so fired up after the game. According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Ozzie “spewed a torrent of profanity” toward Harper in the fourth inning and complained to umpires that the rookie was applying pine tar above the label of his bat, which would be illegal. “First time, it’s going to stay between us,” Guillen said after the game. “I could have said a lot of (stuff) about this kid. I’ve been praising this kid like everyday. The last three times they asked me about him, the only thing I said was he’s a great player. What he did (today) was unprofessional. I’m not going to tell you guys what he did becaus...

Bryce Harper's mustache is gone.

Just a few short days after appearing above Bryce Harper's upper lip (again), Bryce Harper's mustache is gone. There's Harper above as seen on TV in his first AB Monday night.

Is There a Harper and Trout Remix?

I want to hate Bryce Harper and Mike Trout.  Maybe if they played for the Tigers I’d love them but two guys that young, that talented and that successful who aren’t on my team?  Honestly, I really want to dislike them. With Trout it’s a little harder because somehow he comes across as a good guy and great teammate despite only being 20 years old.  Harper, it’s a little...

Marlins 9, Cubs 5

As much as he hates Wrigley Field, Ozzie Guillen had to enjoy this one.

Generation Next: Top Ten Outfielders 25 and Under

We could separate outfielders into separate positions, but quite frankly not every position has enough players to make the list of five. When we make it ten outfielders for the three position we really see a compelling list of outfielders. The best two young players in the game happen to be in the outfield. They are both center fielders, so center field is obviously...
