Bryce Harper Sounds as if He Was Bored in Class-A Hagerstown

Bryce Harper, the future Washington Nationals’ superstar, tore up Class-A Hagerstown and was recently promoted to Class-AA Harrisburg. Here’s what the 18-year-old had to say about the end of his tenure in Hagerstown:

“Those last 20 games, I was really, you know, really not too focused,” Harper said. “You know, I was wanting to get out of there, doing things that I shouldn’t have been doing. And once I got [to Harrisburg Monday night], baseball was fun again. It was a lot of fun being out here, being in this kind of crowd, this type of atmosphere. You know, that’s what you live for.”

Until, of course, he gets bored of Class-AA by the end of August. Then we’ll do this all over again. For the hardcore baseball fans who have a firm grasp on Super-2 status and Harper’s arbitration clock, we won’t see him in the majors until 2012, right? So the Phillies will win the NL East this year and next, and then maybe in 2013 the Nationals – with Strasburg, Zimmer and Harper leading the way – make a run at the division crown? [DC Sports Bog]
