On Tuesday night, Bryce Harper forgot to mention the Yankees in the same Tweet as Dallas, Duke, and the Lakers (via @BHarper3407). Good news.
But more importantly, Davey Johnson continues to make perfect sense on the topic of the possibility of Harper starting the 2012 season in Washington. Here's Davey, via Thomas Boswell/Washington Post:
“Harper is going to be competing in the spring. That will speak volumes,” Johnson said. Shouldn’t Harper be brought up in midseason, like Stephen Strasburg, so he will become a free agent a full season later in his career?
“I never get involved with contracts. That’s their decision. I make my recommendation on what makes the best ball club,” Johnson said. “But you can shoot yourself in the foot making decisions just for contract reasons”
