    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Ryan Zimmermanwent on the DL for the Nats. With him and Morse out they had to do something. They don't have much pop in their lineup as it is. I'll be tuning in tonight also to see what this kid has got.

    They would be well served to leave him up for good. The kid can play. Sending him back down is delaying the inevitable. I think he's ready.
    Like he might be the "anti Branden Larson"?

    I need to ask... he is ready b/c he has not performed that great at AAA? I am not sure I am following that logic. He may perform well in the bigs, but if you are a bit overwhelmed at this time there does not usually equate to success at the MLB level. Nor does it mean that success at AAA means you will succeed at the highest level (Larson).

    Unlike a guy like Larson (who struck out a lot and didn't walk much), Harper isn't getting the hits in AAA, but he has 9 walks and 14 strikeouts in 82 PA's. Those are pretty good ratios for anyone, much less a teenager in AAA. He gets the strikezone fairly well. I would be surprised if we saw him come up and struggle because he can't put the bat on the ball. He could have some spots exploited where he makes weak contact though.

    He does hit the ball hard. I saw him make an awful, embarrassing play in center, but that happens at 19.

    He also has one of the lamest tattoos in baseball

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "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 looks excellent tonight. Double off the base of the CF wall and gunned the tying run out at the plate but Ramos dropped the ball.

    Did he knock his helmet off on purpose running to second on his double?

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Were fans mooning the pitcher/camera when Harper hit his double? The answer is yes.

    It had started to fall off on its own. Easy to knock it off than pull it back on. Not sure what's relevant about it either way.
