Bryce Harper is already men's mag fodder
Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals' highly regarded outfield prospect, is profiled in this month's GQ magazine.
So it's not entirely surprising that Harper is already the subject of a profile in one of those magazines that smells like cologne. GQ, to be precise.
Therein, writer Will Leitch teaches us that, among other things, Harper quite enjoys the F word, that he intends on sliding uncommonly hard into second base, that he characterizes one notable incident as an "‘eff you’ from the mouth," and that he compares hand pain to something ... odd. As you can see, there is also compelling photographic evidence that Harper can fit a regulation-sized baseball in his mouth. (For the sake of context, please note that I just tried this and failed straighaway.)
Hall of Famer and greatest third baseman ever Mike Schmidt also provided his $0.02 on Harper's approach to baseball, the game that makes a fetish out of decorum: ""I would think at some point the game itself, the competition on the field, is going to have to figure out a way to police this young man."
Bryce Harper: You can't stop him; you can only hope to police him.
