Another Reason to Hate Bryce Harper
Nationals rookie outfielder Bryce Harper has made headlines this season for numerous reasons. From his hot start after getting to The Show, to refusing to answer "clown questions," the 19-year-old thinks he has everything figured out.
Sunday afternoon, Harper was up in the 4th inning with a runner on and a four run lead. So can someone explain to me why he throws a tantrum and breaks his bat after striking out in a meaningless at bat? His immaturity is the reason he was sent down so early in spring training last season, and now that he's up, it doesn't appear much has changed.
I'll give him a few points for having the strength to shatter the bat, but take more points away for being a tool.
