Incidentally, it's pretty amusing that this is the program they handed out at this game.
The second is the knee-jerk reaction by Harper fan-boys to once again demean anyone, including his own manager, who might insinuate that Bryce Harper did something less than perfectly.
If calling Matt Williams an idiot is wrong, etc.
FWIW, it's come out that the team has had concerns over Harper on these sorts of plays. They're not manifestations of hustle, but personal frustration.
But the idea that Harper is an innocent victim of mean old Matt Williams and his stupid old school mentality is just wrong.
Maybe it's me, but there seemed to be quite a bit of douche in Harper
A lot of agreeing with Greg K but Harper exudes douche where ever he goes. I have no idea if he's a douche or not. But I can certainly understand that if all you had ever seen of him was him walking around or standing there talking to someone you'd think so.
Maybe I’m wrong and Boswell is just beating up an attractive target for the hell of it. Maybe someone — or many someones — on the Nats is suspicious of Harper. Maybe it’s the totally unhinged thoughts of one player on a bad day. Maybe there’s an undercurrent of anti-Harper sentiment on the team. Maybe Harper is legitimately reverting to some of the stuff that made him look a little bad when he was 16 or 17 or whatever and it’s rubbing people the wrong way.
But we can at least say that it’s not that often a veteran team which many think is playoff-bound gets catty like this in front of reporters. Implying that a guy oversold an injury in order to duck a tough pitcher is a pretty serious accusation, be it made anonymously or not. It’s something worth watching.
