This video from CSNWashington.com shows Bryce Harper, who plays in the Washington Nationals minor league system, hit a bomb then blow a kiss at opposing pitcher Zachary Neal. As you can imagine, Harper isn’t trying to flirt. He just picks a romantic gesture as a way to be a jerk. Moron.
USA Today baseball columnist Steve Gardner presents an interesting take with statistics:
“And we wonder why the Nationals have resisted the urge to promote Harper beyond low-A ball, despite his .342 average, 14 homers, 42 RBI and 1.058 OPS in just 56 games.”
Another case of dumb-athlete-itis.
