    This is the same Harper that was beaned for going too hard/stealing too many bases arrogantly?
    Same guy that runs full speed into walls to try and catch balls?

    Just checking.
    True, but the ball could have bounced away from the fielder. I've seen guys turn popups in front of home plate into doubles, so that is why I'm saying that you just don't know what can happen.

    But I guess I figured out why Papelbon got into Harper - Harper ripped him to the press. You just don't do that.

    You're certainly right, but that percentage is so minuscule that I'd fathom a torn hamstring would have better odds.


    You wanna know who is the SLOWEST down to first in all of baseball?

    It really shows the lunacy in Papelboner's thought process.

    Back when I played in high school, if I started out of the box like Harper did on that pop fly, the coach would likely pull me from the game and have me spend the next few innings doing pushups.

    What do you suppose Pap is doing on his 4-day vacation?

    It would have been nice had Harper slugged him in the nose. I bet he's really pissed off still.

    I imagine the whole team thinks Pap belongs in a mental hospital.

    Not if you hit the ball like Bryce Harper...

    Rules don't apply to the good players? Great lesson to teach the kiddos.

    I'm not a Harper fan or a hater but the dude has played is heart out all year. He's the only bright spot the Nats really have after a disappointing season. If Harper had just slammed his bat and walked straight into the dugout I think the whole team should keep their mouths shut. Paps of all people should just leave him alone after all it the collapse started when that ahole went to Washington
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.
