    Harper to debut tomorrow


  2. #2
    Nats offense was depleted by injuries to their two best bats. I like the move and hope the kid proves to live up to his hype

    $#@! Harper. Little douche can suck a $#@!.

  4. #4
    They promoted him just after the deadline that means he can't become a free agent until 2018.

    It's too early. He can't hit lefties yet. I imagine 2011 Trout-like struggles.

    he's really been setting the world on fire with his .250/.333/.375 slashline in AAA

    Will be interesting to see what happens to him today.

  8. #8
    You guys know that everyone has said these things about him every time he's jumped a level, right?

    *Too young to play juco ball, needs to finish HS, 2010 Golden Spikes winner as the best player in ALL OF College baseball, while @ Juco
    *Too raw for the pros, won't perform this early - .319/.407 in instructional league, and led the team in hits, HR and RBI, 2nd youngest player ever to be promoted to the Fall League, where he proceeded to hit .343/.629.
    *That's just rookie-ball, the minors will be too much too soon - not only did he hit .389 in Spring training with the big club in 2011, he hit .480 with 7HR, 10 doubles, and 23 RBIs in his first 20 games that year. AA-all star, Futures Game representative

    We always complain about scouts, GMs, and coaches ignoring production as a measure of a player, but all this kid has ever done is produce. IF you don't think he's a multiple-time All Star with HOF potential, then I don't know what to tell you. It's not too soon, but it's also not an accident that his free-agency date just passed. Good job by the Nats - these are the things that small-market teams MUST do to be competitive. The Nats know they're going to have Strasburg and Harper for 3 years (together), and they need to make hay while they can.

    He's had a few run-ins with umpires, but the vast majority of interactions and reports on him is that he's a great kid, from a great family who plays with passion and loves the game.

    I'm a fan.

    Kid's gonna tear it up. He's got "it". I don't get why people want to hate on him. The Nats are going to be a strong team for years to come.

    Some things the boxscore doesn't show; in the 7th last night leading 1-0 Harper made perfect throw to nab Hairston at the plate but the catcher dropped it. In the 9th, with the score tied, Harper's sac fly was a rope to LF. That drove in the go ahead run. He played well, and he played well in clutch situations.

    The ball he hit for a double was a 'pro' swing, too. As a lefty, it's TOUGH to get on top of a ball that's up in the zone. Lefty's are traditionally "low ball" hitters. Not only did Harper get his hands above it, but he was able to square up a major-league fastball up and turn a pop-up into a solid line drive. The ball was flat-out hammered. And probably my favorite part; as he was rounding first, the kid was CLEARLY thinking triple and had to be held up by the coach at 2nd. Love that mentality.

    The throw to the plate was a strike from 250 feet. I love Wilson Ramos (really, he's a damn good catcher), but he cost Harper an assist and his team a run by not being able to hold onto that ball - a ball that quite literally can't be thrown any better.

    So in his MLB debut, Harper had an extra-base hit, an RBI in the late innings, didn't strike out, and should have recorded an assist. I can't see a lot to complain about there.

    A fan behind the plate mooned the camera on Harper's swing on the double he hit...hilarious.

    Seeing him bust ass down the line on his first ab was hilarious and pretty impressive in terms of pure speed. Dude can fly

    I went to the game last night. Very impressive debut, particularly on that throw from left field. Harper put it right on the money and had him by a good two feet but Ramos couldn't finish the play.

    This should not be underrated. It's impossible to find any talent evaluator who isn't blown away by Harper's ability on the field, but it's equally difficult to find one who doesn't genuinely dislike the kid. One scout called him among the worst amateur players he's ever seen from a makeup standpoint, with top-of-the-scale arrogance, a disturbingly large sense of entitlement, and on-field behavior that includes taunting opponents. "He's just a bad, bad guy," said one front-office official. "He's basically the anti-Joe Mauer." How this plays into the negotiation or future evaluation is yet to be determined, as history has shown us that the bigger talent a player is, the more makeup issues teams will deal with. Bench players can't afford to be problems, but plenty of teams happily put up with difficult superstars.
    yeah sounds like a great kid. He'll be an absolute stud regardless though. Just don't make him into something he's not.

    I was there last night as well (2nd row behind the Nationals dugout-- thanks, Dad!), and he was impressive. He was soundly booed by Dodger fans and I didn't really understand why. Strasburg looked great. Matt Kemp had an off game, until he hit the monster game-winner of course. Cool night at one of my favorite places on earth...

    That's new information for me - thanks for sharing. Of course, if my picture was overly rosy to begin with, I'm betting yours is overly negative. The truth often lies somewhere in the middle. That said, if someone is willing to go on the record to say something like "he's a bad, bad kid," I would say it's safe to assume he's not going to win any teammate-of-the-year awards. Bummer to learn, that's for sure.

    He did look kind of douchey throwing off his helmet as rounded first to show off his douchey haircut.

    Don't forget this little gem from last year.

    Tuesday night, 18-year-old slugging sensation Bryce Harper, the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft, crushed his 14th home run of the season.

    Great story, right?

    Well, after the ball flew from his bat like a torpedo, Harper stood in the batter's box admiring it. He added in a bat flip for added effect before starting his well-practiced home run trot.

    Just a kid having some fun, right?

    Well...on his way from third base to the plate, Harper blew a kiss to the opposing pitcher, who must have been viably shaken at the fact he was being shown up so blatantly. Never saw the Bambino do that.

    i noticed that too. i dont think i have ever seen a baserunner intentionally discard his helmet before. and yes, that haircut is extremely douchey. still, im rooting for him just because he's fun to watch.

    We were actually really big on the whole eye black thing when I played as a kid. Didn't have any idea people thought of it as douchey until they started criticizing harper for it. I think he's just an over grown little league player

    I like that he smears a $#@! ton of eyeblack on instead of putting on one of those pussy-ass stickers most players wear.

    Great catch today. Even if they get healthy, the Nats might have to have him in the lineup for his defense alone. Two great plays in two games.

    My good friend and a guy I've known my entire life played with Harper at Hagerstown last year and said he's not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Yeah, he's $#@!y, but he (my buddy) said he's definitely had worse teammates. I also got a game used bat and and some bathing gloves from him for my birthday last year. His nickname is Mondo, which is stitched into them. I'll post pics later when I'm off the phone. End of cool story bro.

    to clarify, it's my buddy's bat, Harper's bathing gloves:

    Hopefully this was a required rookie move forced on him from the veterans. Both the helmet and the douche king haircut. If not, the kid is $#@!

    The kid has done pretty well. He went 3-4 the other night and had the game winning rbi last night. Frankly, when Morse and Zimmerman get healthy, this Nationals team will be a force in their division, if not the whole NL

    I'm actively rooting against him. Once a d-bag, always a d-bag. A d-bag can't change his spots. D-bags of a feather flock together. Etc. He and Teixeira are neck and neck for most punchable face in baseball.

    I am not doubting your d-bag meter, I am just curious what he has done that makes you say this? I haven't followed him very much.

    The (sad?) fact is that he'll get that hustle beat out of him in a few years ... and probably for good reason. Management doesn't want to see him hurt, they have too much $$ in his bat to have him go all Ken-Griffey-Jr on them, and hurt himself five different ways in five years. We need to enjoy the product on the field now, while we can.

    2 outs, he was going on contact and Pierre's arm has always been piss pureed. Just got retribution and got out of the inning hahahaha.

    "Where can I get this 'Pierre's Arm' you speak of?"

    Blew a kiss to some minor league pitcher when he took him yard. Then the throw off the helmet so everyone thinks you are flash Gordon. Both scream dude who is full of himself. Two bad incidents before any good is enough for me.

    Context is important, Patron. In that minor league game, the opposing pitcher was being a HUGE d-bag himself, and Harper's entire team wanted to get back at him. Harper looked like a guy defending his teammates and "winning" a team smack-talk battle, rather than a huge dbag who was happy for himself. I'd heard the same version as you, but if the above version is more accurate, then it REALLY changes what that story tells me. I'm sure it's not 100% accurate, but it's interesting to consider a situation where that kiss could have brought his team closer together - instead of a cancer, he's a "great clubhouse guy." Context.

    I'm taking a wait-and-see approach. I'm pulling back on my fanboyism from earlier in the thread, but I'm not ready to write him off just yet either.
