Bryce Harper had 114 RBIs. He is 11th among league leaders in that category. How is that leaving a lot on base? Sure, Iíd like to see him drive in 150 but 114 ainít bad, especially when the goofy manager bats him at the top of the order and not in the three or four spot.
As far as the amount of games he has played in his career.........he played in 1084 games out of a possible 1296 over 8 years. Thatís an average of 26.5 games per season he has missed. You could chalk up some of those games to days off given by the manager. No where near your comment of missing half of his years.
I will agree that his contract is too long and heís probably overpaid but who wouldnít take that deal if it was offered to them? The Phillies and other MLB teams could just say no, weíre not going to pay a ridiculous amount of money to play a kidís game. However, they donít do that because itís a business and they can make money by bringing in big name players. Until the fans say, ďenough is enough, Iím not overpaying for a ticket,Ē it will continue. And those of us who watch at home could do the same, if fans donít watch, teams will take notice, sponsors will go elsewhere to sell their product and prices will come down.
Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious
