"What about the kid?"

Well, Bryce Harper did even more stuff Wednesday night. 3-4 night, 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, RBI. Near-miss 1st HR -- thisclose. A rocket double to start the 9th (another near miss HR). Got picked off 1st base for the first time on a botched SB attempt. Saved a run on a potential sac fly just because his arm is so scary late in the game. Scored the tying run (at the time) by stripping ball from the catcher on a close play at the plate after hustling from 2nd base (video here)?
And then there was his accidental barehanded catch of routine fly ball while falling down in the sixth inning after taking a somewhat Lastings Milledgesque route on the ball. Can't wait to see what he does tonight.
