To quote Craig Calcaterra:
It’s a sad day when a cocksure young man who doesn’t have the best filter in the world decides that having a forum to instantly share his opinions is not a good idea. But, alas, that day has come. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com:
“This may qualify as the biggest news of Nationals camp so far: Bryce Harper has deleted his Twitter account … Why did Harper delete the account last night? ”I just wanted to,” the 19-year-old outfielder said. “I was done.””
This has Scott Boras, National’s front office and corporate America written all over it. There was no way on Earth they were going to let this kid pipe off any time he wanted to lol.
Because simply put this kid is a douche bag.
Like, “one scout called him among the worst amateur players he’s ever seen from a makeup standpoint, with top-of-the-scale arrogance, a disturbingly large sense of entitlement, and on-field behavior that includes taunting opponents. He’s just a bad, bad guy,” one front-office official told Baseball Prospectus. “He’s basically the anti-Joe Mauer” kind of a douche bag.
Nope, it’s time to give him the Arod/Tiger Woods sterilization treatment before anybody beyond baseball diehards finds out.
