    I find the notion that Harper faked an injury to avoid having to face Fernandez a ludicrous proposition. The guy lives, sleeps and breathes baseball. He epitomizes a "gamer" for this generation.

    He's also one of the biggest narcissists in the game. If there's someone that might care enough about his own stats to do something like that, it would probably be him.

    Given how big an ego the guy has, I don't find it ludicrous. I'm skeptical, but it's not at all ludicrous.

    On its face it seems like one of the more ludicrous propositions about one of the game's young stars.

    That not a nice thing to say about me.

    Bryce Harper is faking another injury. Sitting out today so he could avoid facing Andrew Cashner. He was so scared he faked an injury yesterday and left that game early. - Tom Boswell, probably.

    Boswell got those quotes from his team mates is my guess, he's not really known for being a combative writer nor a guy that spouts off unfounded things of that ilk.

    Haven't you ever heard of the saying "don't let facts get in the way of a good argument"?

    Well. Don't.

    Newspaper guys report, Boswell has more credibility with me than you. That's obvious.

    Harper however is not infallible to me either because he's young and has talent.

    I think you missed my point. Which was don't let facts (Boswell's facts, assuming he actually got quotes from teammates) get in the way of me making a good argument.
