Good story from Bryce Harper's point of view by Las Vegas Review-Journal's Matt Youmans this morning. Here's Harper:
The kid looks sharp in a Nats cap, eh? MLB.com's Bill Ladson reported that Harper will be introduced in D.C. sometime during the next homestand, which begins next Monday.
"I knew everything would go down to the wire..."
"I've been waiting for this my whole life. I'm really excited about it. I'm going to enjoy it with my family. I'm really thankful for everything that has happened. This is awesome."
"I'm really excited to go prove myself. I want to prove that that's what I'm worth."
