Hall of Famer
- Jul 30, 2006
I don't think I've ever seen anything like this in my 20+ years of watching baseball. Harper has absolutely assaulted the league and opposing pitchers over the last 11 games. I wonder how long he can keep this up?
Baseball is a game of streaks - a true combination of mental focus and physical ability. I imagine me and you are around the same age - I cant recall anything like this either. This is total domination. Typically as the weather gets warmer the bats heat up but what Harper is doing is unprecedented.
Rizzo is having a quietly dominant start to the season as well. Both Rizzo and Harper seem to have refined their plate discipline as opposed to years past.
Kris Bryant has been pretty amazing as well. He has a great eye and discipline at the plate as a rookie. I think he is the most natural pure hitter I have seen.
