    That was a straight bullet from LF that Bryce threw. If only Ramos could have held on.

    I like this kid a lot. Hope he's up for good. Very exciting to watch. He can do it all.

    I love deadspins humor, but I was struck by a comment in another Harper thread.

    (paraphrasing)

    "Vin Scully called Bryce Harper's first game tonight. He also called Mickey Mantle's first game."

    Let that one sink in.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    He looked like a young Charlie Hustle with those socks.... and the way he ran the bases.

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    He's only three years older than me. Wonder who the first MLB'er younger than me will be?

    And that double was smashed to CF. It was a great throw too. What surprised me most was his speed though. He's very fast for a power hitter/ former catcher.

    That tells me a lot about this kid.

    Does he tattoo his own name on his torso in case he forgets who he is?

    The only game this season I watched every pitch. Exciting on many levels. Harper was impressive. I was really impressed with the way Strasburg neutralized Kemp, only to have Kemp put his Superman outfit back on in time to win the game.

    Strasburg is "wildly effective" with that stunning fastball. I love the fact that he didn't use his curve until he had too and then didn't throw a change up until the 6th inning. His mechanics will not allow him to be consistent as he needs to be, but it almost becomes a non issue when he is showing this much dominance. Very reminiscent of a young Ryan.
    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...

    I have to laugh at the people who were like "How can the Dodger fans boo him?" Uh, anyone who has followed Harper knows he's had a tendency to act like a jerk at times. Think that might have had something to do with it? Can't expect to be a jerk and be loved by everyone. He played his one season of "college ball" somewhat near LA, so I'm sure the fans there are well aware of him. And, yes, some of the fans were just being jerks themselves, but I thought the whole thing was funny. Here is this cocky kid coming up for his first AB in the Majors and the Dodger fans were having none of it. This is why it's good for players to make their debuts at home. Ha. Then he would have received a standing O. I'm sure he still will when he comes up for his first AB in DC.

    Well with that double last night by Harper, Cozart is no longer in the lead for ROY unfortunately.

    We all have a tendency to act like a jerk, sometimes. The difference is, we don't all have eyes on us every second of the day.

    I think he is cocky and am not a fan...

    But if he hustles the rest of his career like he did last night I'm sure I will come around.

    I have never done most of the things the Harper has done that has given him a bad reputation, nor would I ever do them. Neither have most major leaguers.

    True ... and I'm sure Harper doesn't have a problem with the reaction from Dodger fans. He seems like the kind of kid that feeds off the hate. And if it does bother him, too bad. Want to be loved by everyone? Don't act like a jerk. Course, he might not care in the least about being loved by everyone.
