RT @ChristianYelich: Hopefully Bryce Harper's bat doesn't admit that it hit him on purpose and get suspended that would be unfortunate
RT @JeffPassan: Dear Bryce Harper: Hitting yourself with a bat in the head is so passe. Use me next time. I'm the new hotness. Sincerely, Fire Ext...
Baseball wunderkind Bryce Harper clocks himself with bat5/12/2012
Remember "Le Chiffre," the weak-kneed villain from the otherwise awesome Bond movie "Casino Royale"? He cried tears of blood, and last night it looked like Washington Nationals teenager Bryce Harper was channeling the role. Harper tossed a bat during a slump-inspired temper tantrum, and it ricocheted off a wall and socked him in the face. While manager Davey Johnson wanted to pull Harper, the phenom insisted on staying in the game after taking 10 stitches, leading to the totally surreal sight of a major league batter staring down a pitcher while bleeding from the eye. It was pretty badass. Not as badass was his 0-for-5 line, but the kid's gotta avoid getting so shaken or stirred over one measly May game.
Do you like the passion, or stupid move?
