This is a Bryce Harper Highlight

by Sam Miller

It's always important to adjust for era. There are 30 pages of Ken Griffey, Jr. highlights on MLB.com. There are 20 pages of Bryce Harper highlights on MLB.com. So has Bryce Harper already accomplished two-thirds as much as Griffey? No, of course not. Maybe half. But not two-thirds.

Still, there are 20 pages of Bryce Harper highlights on MLB.com. And, like the old expression goes, they can't all be walk-off singles

No matter where he is in the house, when the phone rings Bryce Harper always wants to answer it.

Better that Harper dive for the phone than play it like those George Bailey's dang kids.

Put Harper in CF and Dee Gordon at SS on the same team and there would be several collisions per game.

Or Adrian Beltre, who took out 2/3 of Boston's outfield in 2010.
