Jay Bruce at age 19: 444 ABs. 16 HRs. 106 Ks. 44 BBs. Slash line: .291/.355/.516/.871. Harper at age 19: 437 ABs. 17 HRs. 98 Ks. 47 BBs. .259/.330/.449/.779.
Pretty even - except one did it in the majors while the other was in low-A. That was the 286 of player comps.
Which is what every Nats fan said about Harper when clowns on here were LOLing about him getting called up to replace Xavier Nady.
In a way, a point has been made.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Lol Harper has never put up numbers like that at any level. Bruce seems like a good comp.
I'm trying to think of a single baseball topic 286 has been right about this year and I'm struggling.
Harper _is_ becoming a very good defensive OF, especially considering he's played the position for a total of 2 years. He makes decisional errors (i.e. being overly aggressive on choosing which base to throw to) and every now and then he takes a bad line to fly balls, but he's so freakishly athletic - his speed is incredibly underrated - that he usually tracks them down anyway. He also has 6 OF assists this year.
As he learns how to actually play the position and use his natural gifts, he'll become a Gold Glove-caliber defensive player. He has all the natural ability that guys like Ken Griffey, Jr and Devon White had.

Please point to where I've ever posted in an O's threads? You can't find any. In fact, you troll more in non NL-East threads than I do in non-Nats threads.
Yeah but over his last 25 ABs he has a .450 OBP and a OPS near 1.000 so clearly pitchers havnt figured him out.
If this isnt the pot calling the kettle black I dont know what is.
MadBum, Manny Machado will pray for you.

Yes I've been horribly wrong about predicting the Nats as a playoff lock in April, defending the Harper callup and suggesting Edwin Jackson is a better pitcher this year than Tim Lincecum.
I'll hang up and listen.
Harps last 30 AB:
4 BB / 4 K
Yeah but over his 16 AB he only has 4 hits.
month of september:
anymore brain busters?
Would you like to try the word "buzz?"
But in his last 3 AB's, he has 2 HR!
lol nice sample size bro
hahaha, I'm dieing at the past 5 or so posts. Good work
I think that even though Nats and O's fans don't always see eye to eye, and there's disagreement as to whether each team's young stud prospect should have been called up this year, we can all agree that Rick Porcello sucks a high hard one.
Is this real life?
It's not real life. Harper actually has 6 hits in his last 16 AB's. What Majopa really meant was that Harper has 4 XBH in his last 16 AB.
check and mate
i would like to surprise buttsecks the last 2 pages
