Who do you take 3rd overall in a roto OBP + BB's league. Is it Harper?

 

Yeah. He's kind of like Votto with more counting stats.

Guarantee you as Harper just muffed that Duvall liner, he was heading back to the wall thinking of his payday at the end of the year.

 

Previous years he'd have crashed into the wall making a brilliant catch, holding the ball in the air while lying on his back then being taken off the field by trainers.

2 homers today, great way to get the momentum going to start the season. Praying for health.

I nearly took Harper in such a league but went with Nolan. If you could guarantee me Bryce plays 150 games this year, I'd have taken him, but I don't want to worry about injury risk with a #3 pick.

I own no Harper stocks this year, but there's just something about this guy that screams "you are watching a historically great player" 

 

He has that Kobe Bryant like tenacity to be great too (the guy that sleeps in the gym after not leaving all night because he has to make 500 shots before going home just because). Raw talent + being the hardest worker in baseball is going to make for some special production. 

 

He's going to put it altogether for 155 games one of these years and put up the type of numbers that might not be matched for several decades down the road. 

 

Don't get me wrong, Trout is clearly the best player in the game, but Trout is more just a really safe/high floor type of player. 

 

Harper could put up 60 bombs, and an OBP that pushes .500

Zimmerman has been awful. No Need to pitch to Harper with someone that bad behind him. I wonder if the Nats ever dabble with batting harper 2nd.

The Nats need their top 5 to look like this, which will offer Harper some legit protection;

 

Eaton

Turner

Harper

Rendon

Murphy(once he's back in action)

Harper doesn't need protection.
