Is Bryce Harper worth $330 million? It’s too soon to tell

When the Dodgers courted Bryce Harper this spring, they spoke to him about the possibility of him playing left field for them. Harper went on to sign a $330-million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Dodgers stayed with Joc Pederson in left field. Pederson launched his 17th home run of...

Bryce Harper’s huge series vs. St. Louis

Bryce Harper’s huge series vs. St. Louis

He’s getting hot. What changed, and how long can he keep it up? This was the kind of series we’d been waiting for since the season opener against Atlanta, and the hot streak might only just be beginning. Bryce Harper stepped to the plate 12 times over the last three days, and almost single-handedly powered the Phillies to a sweep of the Cardinals at home. They settled for just 2-of-3 (they’re 3-0-1 in their last four series), but not without Bryce doing his damnedest to avoid a loss on Thursday. The raw numbers from this series can make you sweat: 8 hits (.667 AVG) 5 doubles...

Delayed gratification: Phillies 11, Cardinals 4

Cardinals starter Genesis Cabrera was making his major league debut, and the Phillies welcomed him to the big leagues with two runs in the first inning. Unfortunately for Cabrera, things didn’t improve after that. After Cesar Hernandez drove in the first two runs, Bryce Harper took...

Bryce Harper’s totally baffling 2019 season

Bryce Harper’s totally baffling 2019 season

Some of the numbers being put up by Harper this season make absolutely no sense. It seems inconceivable that, on May 28, Bryce Harper would be carrying a .227 batting average and a .438 slugging percentage into a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. No one expected Harper to have an OPS over 1.000 right away, but his OPS+ of 109 through 234 plate appearances indicates he’s only been a slightly better than average offensive player thus far. He’s aided by a healthy 15.8% walk rate (although that is down from the 18.7% he had last year) and his 31.2%...
