The kid has a cannon for a arm.

 

He threw out jerry hairston jr in first game in LA, but hairston made a great play and knocked the ball out of ramos' glove, and the one at nats park on the sac fly, was just a bad blown call by the home ump, with him ankiel and werth in the OF there won't be to many extra bases taken on hits.

if that '>' is referring to their age, or years of experience, then yes, you are correct.

Harper has accomplished nothing in the MLBs that approach what these guys do.

I think the Nats are taking a huge risk playing Harper this early. If for only being the fact they will lose him to the Yankees or Dodgers a year sooner because you know Harper is going to leave for the highest bid. Harper gave a stiff shoulder bump to an ump in his secend big league at bat after a fly out. The guy acts very arrogant. He did make a nice throw in that game. But Ramos dropped it. Hairston didnt swat at it until it was already on the ground and it was rolling over home plate. He would have been out if Hairston had touched it while swatting. But Hairston missed the ball so he was safe.

From the Ripken story:

 

“So he is confident. I’ve had a chance to talk to him. Some would say he’s a little bit cocky. And I would rather have someone that’s a little bit cocky coming to the big leagues, that’s not scared, than someone that’s scared.

 

“I mean, I think I was scared a little bit, coming into that environment, not knowing what to expect. The crowds, 50,000 people, what’s that gonna feel like?"

 

Guess Harper doesn't have to worry about the crowds!

What's the risk, if they had held him back than he wouldn't be able to go to arbitration as soon, and this is the nats we are talking about, not the O's, they have been more than willing to shell out money since bowden was fired, yeah he might end up a yankee, but that won't be for at least 6 years.

Do you know of anyone else who believes that? No one on MLB.com believes that nor on baseballamerica, sports illustrated or any reputable journalist.

 

That is an unreasonable and irrational statement made to invite vitriolic responses.

I salute you, Sir Troll. You have lowered the integrity of the internet

Clearly you are impressed by or scared of him. Otherwise, why would you compare a kid who's been in the bigs for a week versus players with 3+ years of experience. :confused:

Harper brings with him the same very high expectations that came with Matt Weiters when he was first promoted to the O's. If either Harper or Weiters were on the market, practically every other team in MLB would want them. They're very special talents and that's obvious to almost anyone remotely familiar with baseball.

Game winning RBI double last night...hitting .375 and 4 doubles in 6 games, and they need to move detwiler up a spot in the rotation, jackson has been the most vulnerable.
