Everyone’s least favorite man-boy with a dog named Swag will be in town for the next few days as Bryce Harper and the Nationals take on the Phillies (weather permitting) at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. After the Nats beat up on the O’s yesterday, Harper said that he hopes to bring out the boo-birds while he’s in town. “Hopefully, I get a couple of boos. That would be awesome,” he said. “I’m excited to get in there and play and hopefully they won’t throw any batteries or whatnot at me.” Well Bryce, beggars can’t be choosers.* [Philly.com]
* The last thing Philly needs is another incident like that to play 15 times a day on SportsCenter. So, let’s all agree to refrain from actually throwing batteries at the kid.
