Just a few short days after appearing above Bryce Harper's upper lip (again), Bryce Harper's mustache is gone. There's Harper above as seen on TV in his first AB Monday night. Maybe it was just pine tar? Good news: Harper didn't get beaned by Carlos Zambrano in his first AB. It helps that Zambrano couldn't really find the strike zone (Harper walked on five pitches).
Even less importantly than the state of Harper's facial hair, Ozzie Guillen went off on Harper prior to Monday night's game, lobbing verbal grenades in the general direction of Harper and Davey Johnson.
"I like this kid. I think this kid is good for baseball. He's going to be better. But if this kid continues to do that [BLEEEEEP], he might not make it. Because they're going to fool around with the wrong guy, and that wrong guy will kick his ass. He might not make it."

Maybe Ozzie was referring not to Harper, but to Harper's 'stache, when he said: "he might not make it"?
