Bryce Harper finally got one tonight

Harper’s second home run of 2012 A Friday night in Philadelphia and Bryce Harper is mired in what seems like a one for forever slump. There are whispers that he’s not catching up to fastballs, even some wondering if he has the ever-dreaded ‘diminished skills’ at age 21 from all the injuries. Nothing quiets these fears into a serenity momentarily like a nice bomb to right...

Bryce Harper Shows Off Softer Side In New ‘This Is Sportscenter’ Ad (Video)

Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper is actually a big softie at heart. Well, at least according to ESPN’s latest “This Is SportsCenter” commercial that debuted Thursday.

The commercial begins with the 21-year-old watching “Field of Dreams”...

Here's Bryce Harper messing with Matt Williams in the dugout

And so, Bryce Harper has no respect for authority, or something. There he is messing with manager Matt Williams in the dugout before Wednesday night's game in Baltimore with the old "tap you on the right shoulder and exit stage left" prank. Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post, one of the biggest Bryce Harper fans around, is probably working on a column about how...

Bryce Harper fails at breaking his bat over his knee (VIDEO)

WATCH: Bryce Harper tries to break bat over knee, fails

I’m an unapologetic fan of Bryce Harper, even if he sometimes is an emotional, childish wreck of a man at times. On Sunday, he showed off a very tiny bit of that childish streak when he tried to break his bat over his knee following a sixth inning strikeout. The key word, of course, is “tried”. Harper couldn’t do it, despite some tremendous effort on his part. And you know...

Bryce Harper thinks Nationals should change their lineup

TweetJust one game back from the disabled list, and outfielder Bryce Harper already has an opinion on how to improve the lineup card Nationals manager Matt Williams put together.
