Bryce Harper. What more is there to say about this up-and-coming, young, exquisite specimen?
He has only just started, and there is plenty more to come.
If possible, I think there has been more talk surrounding him and his play than when the phenom flame-throwing Stephen Strasburg arrived in the big leagues two years ago. He has been a blessing for the Nationals, and does not look as if he is leaving anytime soon.
Not only is it the way Harper has performed at the plate, but he has also carried himself like he has been doing this for years: like a professional.
Harper is only 19 years old and he is already taking the Nation’s Capital by storm; he has only played in eight games for the Nats thus far in his young career, but it seems like he has been at this level for longer than just eight games.
There has been non-stop gossip surrounding whether or not Harper will stay at the major league level or if he will be demoted with the return of slugger Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse.
I have compiled a list of eight reasons why the Nationals must keep Harper at the major league level (they are not in any particular order).
