Does it get any better than this video (via CSN Washington.com) of Derek Jeter and ex-Nat Adam Dunn gushing about Bryce Harper? Well, yes, it does. But, still, it's pretty cool to hear Jeter talk about Harper. Dunn, too. Won't be long before Harper hits one up into the third deck at Nationals Park like Dunn used to, you know?
"You know what I like about him is he plays hard. He plays everything hard. He runs out everything. Which a lot of times you don't see with young guys - with older guys. You don't see guys hustle all the time. And I always like to see guys that come up and hustle...play the game the way its supposed to be played...he's one of those guys."

"I mean he's the real deal. I mean, you know. Obviously you hear all about him, but you know. You never know. But he's as good as advertised, for sure."
