Bryce Harper is Not Exactly Tearing Up Class-AA

We update you when Bryce Harper arrogantly blows a kiss to a pitcher and it’s kind of a big deal when he gets new (bad) tattoos … so here’s an update on his struggles in Class-AA:

Through 9 games, he’s 6-for-31 (.194 average) at the plate with zero homers, six RBI and seven strikeouts.

Fans in Harrisburg have been booing him lately. What’s with the early funk? He can’t possibly be bored already, can he?

Nah. It’s probably that he’s 18 years old, and the kids he went to high school with graduated last month. By the 25-game mark, he’ll probably be up to .300 with half a dozen homers. Also, Harper is facing a lot of lefties. Interestingly enough, two of the best lefties in baseball are in the NL East (Cliff Lee, Cole  Hamels). And Johan Santana of the Mets isn’t bad, either.

Because you want to see it first!
