Harper makes huge fall impression

Bryce Harper has played in only seven games so far in his professional career. He has just one home run.

And scouts can't stop talking about him.

"I haven't ever seen a guy that young swing a bat that hard," said one scout just back from the Arizona Fall League, where the just-turned-18 Harper is playing for the Scottsdale Scorpions. "I could see him in the big leagues at 19 or 20."

Said another: "He's unbelievable, walking in like that and facing Double-A and Triple-A pitchers. Just to watch him in batting practice is a pleasure. He's hitting balls over the light towers."

Harper, the first pick in the June draft, signed with the Nationals on Aug. 16, so this is his first game action as a pro. Because he was a late addition to the Scorpions roster, he only plays two games a week.

In his first seven games, Harper has hit .357 (10-for-28), but also has struck out 10 times.

It's not just his bat that has impressed the scouts. Harper was a catcher in high school and college, but the Nationals have moved him to the outfield and it's apparently been a smooth transition.

"One game I saw, a guy hit a ball that was going to be a triple," one of the scouts said. "It was in the right-field corner, 340 feet away. He got there and threw a clothesline strike to third base. The ball never touched the ground."

Give the Nationals a couple years to develope all their young talent and if the management doesn't get stupid the Nats will be a force to deal with in the National league. If the owners don't get cheap and they keep all the young players they have they'll be a playoff team within 2 years. As a Phils fan living in Nats country they are becoming a scary good team.
