He does seem to be ridiculously streaky......he's either super insanely hot or not hitting at all.  No middle ground.

Single season base-on-balls:

1. Bonds 232 (2004)

2. Bonds 198 (2002)
3. Bonds 177 (2001)
4. Ruth 170 (1923)
5. McGuire 162 (1998)


Harper is on pace for 190-200 base-on-balls. The guy isn't being pitched to. Ryan Zimmerman is hot garbage.

Rendon,Eaton,Murphy will help one day.In the meantime,there is an old dead guy covering him.Can't wait until he joins Jayson Werth on on the all time former Nats who suck list.

Is the fact he's not really being pitched too a reason why he is also badly slumping?   He's still getting his walks but I wonder if at other times he is expanding the zone too much.  I feel like every game for him now is 0-3/2 walks.

Saw this a few years back when Maddon walked him 5 times in a game, and then he slumped badly for 3 months.

I feel like this guy hardly has had guys on base ahead of him this year. And when he does, he always goes after the first pitch and hits it right at someone. I would love for this guy to take a pitch or two and work the count like he usually does when there are no guys on base. A little frustrating to watch bc you know the damage this guy can do but it seems like he gets trigger happy with guys on base.

I agree, just an injury would be far worse and that was my 1st thought.

It will be night and day once those guys come back to give Harper some protection.

Harper should be in the lead off spot while these guys are injured

He's very frustrating right now.  Every game is 0-3/1 walk, 0-2/2 walks.   1 XBH the last 2 weeks.  Not hitting for AVG or driving in runs.

Help will be coming in the next couple of weeks. Eaton, Rendon and Murphy all seem to be coming back soon and he'll have a whole lot more protection.

Yes, a lot. Saying that he’s not getting a $500M contract isn’t being s Debbie downer, it’s discussing the player who said that amount would be selling him short. I’m sorry he’s not hitting enough.
