Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper
I've seen quite a bit in my career but the exploits of Harper are minor compared to the exploits of Aaron Boone, Adam Dunn, Austin Kearns and a few select others on a near nightly basis at Have a Nice Day cafe and JAPS in downtown Cincinnati several years ago. Were cameras following them? No. Would you classify their behavior as young guys just having fun? Probably. Even though they crossed the line on more than one occasion I would just say they are privileged athletes. Harper is cocky. Good for him. I don't have issue with that. Has he done things he regrets. No doubt, just as all of us have.
It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
