There's video of Bryce Harper striking out swinging on a huge cut Saturday night in Lexington; calmly places bat and helmet on the plate against a backdrop of jeers and makes his way to right field. The kid even looks good striking out these days.
But the strikeouts have been few and far between these days for Harper (7 in his last 10 games over 40 ABs -- 6 of those collected over his last 20 ABs; and 4 of 'em in his last 2 games.) But even more striking than the dearth of strikeouts during Harper's recent demolition-job on SAL pitching? The hits keep on coming...Harper extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a 2-5 performance Tuesday afternoon. All told, just a .377/.459/.679 slash line through 30 games (106 ABs). Guess he's feeling hitterish.
Eh, so when's Harper going to be promoted (to the P-Nats?) anyway? Maybe after June 21? Has to be sooner, right?
