Bryce Harper 2017 Outlook

This is hilarious.  A baseball to the hip isnt causing serious injury, as you can see Harper is fine.  A blunt object to the face, be it the bat or the helmet has much more of a chance of causing serious injury.  Harper is going to get the amount of games you get for charging and throwing punches PLUS extra for taking his helmet to the mound and attempting to strike Strickland in the face with it, no matter how poor the execution of the helmet throw was.

 

Are you kidding? You don't understand the point is that throwing at somebody can end seasons or even careers? It doesn't matter where it hit him, the point is it's dangerous as hell, not "as you can see Harper is fine". He could have broken his wrist like freddie, or Stanton when he got hit in the face, or a hundred other guys. Guys have been killed by pitched baseballs.

This.  And I wouldn't put too much trust into a guy with a 1.41 WHIP being able to locate his FB on my hip versus my wrist or face.  Poor command is the reason he's beaning Bryce in the first place - don't throw taters down the middle and you don't have to revenge bean a guy for hitting HRs off you.

Played for many years.  I know what its like to be hit by a pitch.  Im definitely choosing that over letting someone strike me in the face with anything. 

That's the wrong video you were watching. And even that hurt less.

1 major leaguer. I remember two different high schoolers in the last 10 or so years.

Lol. I am neither an owner nor a fan. How many have been killed by batting helmets, lol? You can't even figure out that you're holding Harper to "hitting him in the face" for missing him, while dismissing Strickland who actually did hit bryce because "as you can see Harper is fine". Both were dangerous, the pitch much moreso in my opinipn, but whatevee. Thanks for the laughs this morning ace, have a good day

I never knew that people would choose a hit to the face over the hip, with any object.  Interesting. I bet Stanton would choose the hip.

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I find it quite interesting the media's take on this, especially ESPN. Considering all the past love they've given the Nationals/Harper over the years I am not surprised, but the amount of attention they're giving it is interesting. Trout's injury is bigger news worthy IMO. I can already predict the big fit they will throw on the amount of suspension he gets vs Strickland.

Trout's injury has bigger implications sure but a benches-clearing brawl is way more interesting than a guy who got hurt sliding into 2nd.  Full coverage of Trout's injury takes like 5 minutes and that would be really dragging it out.  Lots to discuss and dissect when you have two full teams on the field going at each other.

Odor sucker punched Batista who wasn't expecting it. What a great move. Role model 

Following the shove from Odor, Bautista was expecting it. He started to wind up to Throw a punch himself but odor was too quick lol regardless of any of this baseball players can't fight better than anyone else! ?

Is this a play through the appeal situation or would he start serving the suspension right away?

I may be confusing sports but my understanding is you can play through an appeal

Sharks first pitch to bricey tonight needs to be behind him, could see Shark shrugging his shoulders saying, well, it was an attempt at a distraction, wasn't trying to hit him, it slipped.
