Bryce Harper: Epilogue

MLB Network’s “Clubhouse Confidential” program did a segment on Bryce Harper today that reinforces my earlier post.

So, is it possible that Bryce Harper is a year ahead? He did get out of high school a full year early for his age, played a ton of summer-league ball–has a lot of reps. It is possible–it is possible–but you’re now expecting him to be a year ahead of Mickey Mantle, Ken Griffey Jr., Al Kaline, and A. Rod! Okay. Not likely.

Bottom line: it’s going to take a lot more than Bryce Harper–or a lot more from Bryce Harper–to justify starting his arbitration/free agency clock early by bringing him into the big leagues on Opening Day.
