Everybody hates Bryce (Harper)

I love Bryce Harper. A player like that has the potential to be great for the game. He’s still a very raw talent, but there are plenty of tools to work with and he plays the game like his hair is on fire. There’s a lot to like. And yet, he takes home a very negative reputation. The stigma surrounding Harper almost leaves a bad taste in your mouth. How has he managed to receive...

Anonymous Scout rips Bryce Harper, says Nationals may look to trade him

Baseball Prospectus has a new feature that might be enough to get us to ante up for a subscription. The new feature is called “What Scouts are Saying”, and this morning in the Washington Post we were clued into an interesting tidbit offered by an anonymous scout. Here’s the dirt: He’s only 21 years old and there is a lot of talent there, but we are starting to reach the point...

Bryce Harper's 417 ft. home run last night: "That's one of the best balls I’ve hit all year" (Video)

So it looks like Bryce Harper might be starting to find his stroke after scuffling for most of this injury-shortened season. According to Hit Tracker, Harper's fourth inning blast (his third against the Mets in the past week) last night at Citi Field traveled 417 feet before touching down. Here's Harper: "It felt great. That’s one of the best balls I’ve hit...

You can’t knock Bryce Harper’s power to all fields

In the Nationals 7-1 victory on Tuesday evening, Bryce Harper hit another ball out to left field. It was the fourth in his career at Citi Field. It should be no secret that he absolutely kills the Mets. And when you scroll back through Harper’s career homers, he’s hit a fair number of home runs to straight away left field. Of all the parts of Harper’s game that you wish maybe...

Bryce Harper Kicks Dirt On Braves Logo Three Times, Later Denies It

Over the years, the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves have found themselves near or at the top of the NL East division standings. In fact, this season the Nationals have the lead in the division by just a handful of games over the Braves. As a result, it’s only natural for the two teams to develop a rivalry. Bryce Harper might have escalated the new rivalry to another level...

Bryce Harper upsets Braves fans by dragging foot through logo

What was a more ridiculous controversy involving Bryce Harper this week? Was it the question of whether or not the 21-year-old should be sent to the minors when he was hitting .249 with an OPS under .700? Harper quickly scotched that question by hitting a walkoff home run in the Nationals’ 5-3 win over the Mets on Thursday. Or was it the supposed indignity of Harper dragging his...

Braves Call out Bryce Harper After Incident at Home Plate

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has been somewhat of an enigma since making his MLB debut at the age of 19 back in 2012. Seen as somewhat immature by those on the outside, this five-tool player has struggled to an extent this season. He’s hitting .254 with just four homers and 16 RBI’s.  It remains to be seen if Harper’s latest incident is a sign that he’s frustrated...

Watch Bryce Harper drag his foot across Braves emblem behind home plate in Atlanta

And so, Bryce Harper created a stir last night in Atlanta (Nats beat the Braves 4-1 in 11 innings after a 3 hour, 41 minute rain delay) when he was seen dragging his foot across the "A" in the dirt behind home plate at Turner field last night before three at bats. Apparently the Braves TV guys referred to this act as "desecrating the A", and the official Braves...

Did Bryce Harper intentionally disrespect Braves logo?

Bryce Harper showed some disrespect to the Atlanta Braves by scuffing up the team’s logo behind home plate as he went to bat each plate appearance in Saturday’s 4-1 win in extra innings. The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore says Harper did it each time he went to the plate during his 2-for-4 game. Vivlamore […]
