And so, Bryce Harper's favorite baseball team is in town for a weekend series against the Nationals. The series couldn't be set up more perfectly - battle between two first place teams, and the first time since 1969 that a winning baseball team from Washington faces the Yankees.
Meawhile with talk of whether Byrce Harper should be an All-Star this year or not, it seems that Bryce Harper Fan Alex Rodriguez would vote for Harper if given a chance (via Washington Times):
"I love everything [about Harper]. I’m a huge baseball fan above all, even being a baseball player. He’s the kind of guy I would pay my money to watch play. I’m sure well after I’m done I’ll be paying my money to watch him play and break all the records." (Alex Rodriguez, via Washington Times, 6/14/2012)
"I am very supportive of young players, not just on our team. They call or text, and I am always available." (A-Rod, via NY Post, 6/15/2012)
