    Bryce Harper.....WOW!

    In a game to go to the JUCO World Series, future #1 pick Harper went 6 for 6 with 4 HR's, a double, and a triple. This kid is still only 17 and should be a junior but he went JUCO so he could get to the league sooner. Will be the #1 pick for the Nats next year and will probably be in the bigs by the time he is 19. Incredible stats.

    Re: Bryce Harper.....WOW!

    Heard the scouts hate his attitude so much so as it may affect his draft status. But I've been following the kid since he burst onto the national scene a couple years ago...No doubt the Strausburg and Bryce Harper combo would be a good one for the Nats.

    Price tag just went up. Have fun Nats negotiating with this kid and Boras.

    Price tag has always been high.

    He has the most violent swing I've ever seen. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the majors.

    I see a J.D. Drew situation happening again. I don't understand why baseball players turn into head cases but I'm pretty sure Bryce Harper is a "can't miss" prospect.

    Re: Bryce Harper.....WOW!

    There was a huge article on him in SI a year or two ago. Won't he be eligible for the draft this year?

    Yes, he'll be the number one pick if the Nationals can afford it.

    There will be a lot of younger guys that will try to do the knee turn he is doing.

    Not going to happen. The Nats would face as much criticism as if they would have passed on Strasburg.

    I've read where they are cash-strapped from all the up-front money given to last years draft (including Strasburg). Much of it is me hoping they pass but I wouldn't be shocked if they did. His attitude has been criticized too.

    Re: Bryce Harper.....WOW!

    The Nats have pretty much already decided they are going to take him. That team has a chance at being pretty good in a couple of years. The question is, do you keep him behind the plate, or do you make him a corner outfielder?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
