Can he really decline if he's just 21? He's adjusting.

Yeah but what will he do after he adjusts and then the league adjusts again?

Players can't go backwards? Happens all the time.

Just saying I feel it's too soon for them to say he's declining. Go backwards, yes, but declining would indicate a long period of success followed by a downfall.

Only one player has that skill...

You're the worst at evaluating young players.

I didn't evaluate Harper, the author did.

No. You do not get to do this after months of you making the most illogical and mindblowingly stupid arguments for Casey fucking McGehee and your trademark "people can improve" schtick. No. Just fuck you.

Regression and improvement are both realities of every sport. There's plenty of time for Harper to rebound, and a likely culprit is all the injuries he's had makes it hard to play consistently well. I just hate Bryce Harper, I think he's a douche.

Harpers young, was probably rushed to the majors and is doing it on a competitive team.


He'll pull around. Even if it means a "rehab" stint to do it. He's already proven to be an average MLB player when he had expectations that would normally break any 17 year old.

FFS- he was on the Sports Illustrated cover at 16!
