Open Thread: Bryce Harper wants to be a YankeeBy
He even guarantees he’s going to play in The Show. There is no other plan.
“I’ve always wanted to put on the pinstripes,” he says.
Of course the kid then goes on to say he loves Boston too, and that college would be a really cool experience as well. And I suppse he could be talking about Colorado Rockies pinstripes, but that seems unlikely. You can tell Harper’s a wunderkind, he’s got Boras-speak down despite only being a high school sophomore. This also gives me an excuse to post this:
My favorite quote of the piece was Harper saying: “I’d play anywhere, even Kansas City.” Hope that makes you feel good Royals fans, a 16 year old would be willing to play on your team if things didn’t work out with the other 29 clubs. Heh.
Anyway, here’s your open thread of the night. The Knicks and Nets are both in action tonight, but otherwise talk about whatever you like here. Just be nice.
Oh, last reminder to vote in this week’s Fan Confidence Poll.
