Name Your Bryce

This story is from Wednesday morning, but it made me so happy, I wanted to post about it here. Bryce Harper, the overpaid, overrated baseball star, left the Washington Nationals and signed with the Philadelphia Phillies during the offseason. Harper had a mediocre year, while his former team, uh, didn’t.

The Washington Nationals and Bryce Harper both celebrating on Wednesday. For Harper, it’s his 27th birthday and for the Nats, they relished in the moment of clinching their first-ever trip to the World Series.

This past offseason, Harper sent shockwaves through the league when he left the Nationals and signed a $330 million contract with division-foe Philadelphia Phillies.

After the Nationals’ pennant-clinching win Tuesday night, many wasted no time taking to social media to troll Harper and even brought up the superstar’s blunder during his introductory press conference with the Phillies in March when he said he couldn’t wait to “bring a title back to D.C.”

Phillies fans are about as despicable as Eagles fans, so my smile is from ear to ear.

Now, most of you know I’m an Orioles and Yankees fan, so if New York goes to the series, I’m obviously cheering for them. That said, I think the Nationals fans’ trolling of this epic douchebag is beautiful, and it’s made even more delicious on Harper’s birthday!

Since baseball is in full swing, I figured I’d post Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.

Bryce Aron Max Harper (born October 16, 1992) is an American professional baseball right fielder for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball. He stands 6’3″ tall and weighs 220 lbs. The Nationals selected him with the first overall pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.

He won the 2010 Golden Spikes Award, awarded annually to the best amateur baseball player. He made his MLB debut with the Nationals on April 28, 2012 at 19 years old. Harper was selected for the 2012 All-Star Game, becoming the youngest position player to ever be selected. He has been touted as a “five-tool player”.

Heh, heh, “five-tool.”

He won the NL Rookie of the Year Award in 2012, and tied for the NL lead in home runs in the 2015 Major League Baseball season. He was named the National League Most Valuable Player for 2015 by unanimous decision of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, the youngest MLB baseball player to ever do so.
