It's time for Bryce Harper to become the greatest sports villain of our age

Bryce Harper could destroy the Nationals season :-)

I like Bryce ...

Being a Phillies fan since the 70's, Michael Jack Schmidt use to strike out with winning runs on, and hit Home Runs when the game was already decided. He drove us nuts, but they always had to know when he was up because he was a threat. When he got older he became more consistent. Not a terrible problem to have....I don't draft Harper usually because he goes for too much in the drafts I am in!!!

Struck out with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th ... to send the game into extra innings.  On a 95 mph fastball right down the middle of the plate.

Came back from paternity leave to hit another homer last night. In his last 15 games he's touched them all nine times.

He's also walked back to the dugout 18 times.

Imagine where the Phillies OPS+ would be *without* Harper, Segura, JT and Mccutchen.  Yikes.

Herrera was terrible.  And Franco has been mostly terrible with a few hot stretches scattered about.

Funny stat of the day.

Remember how everyone was so excited about Harper, Realmuto, McCutchen, and Segura joining the Phillies offense?

Yeah ... McCutchen and Herrera have been lost for the season.  And Segura spent a bunch of IL time.

But the powerful Phillies rank 10th in the NL in OPS+, per Baseball Reference.

First, third and fourth, no surprise - Dodgers, Braves, and Cubs.

Second and fifth?  Mets and Pirates.  A bit surprising.

Three more knocks this afternoon. Suddenly, after little more than a third of the season, his prorated stats don' look so bad.

His batting average is actually a tad above the league average.

Should score around 100 runs, drive in 120.

The power department... that has to be called disappointing. Surely he was expected to hit more than 30 homers? Especially when you consider that 54 hitters are on a pace to hit more than 30.

Interesting long analysis on Harper at fangraphs.

Conclusion is that he's probably trying to sell out for power at home, to impress the fans after his big signing ... and that's completely messing with his approach (for example, at home he's swinging at a LOT of stuff outside the zone).

I'm wondering how to adjust various predictive algorithms to inject a "head case" factor?
