Bryce Harper: I'd Boo Me Too

Ryan Glasspiegel

Bryce Harper was booed by Phillies fans during a 3-1 loss to the Tigers on Tuesday, and he had a succinct message for everyone who reacted that way: “I’d do the same thing.”

Harper was 0-4 on Tuesday; in his last 10 games, he is 4-33. The silver lining here is that at least the Phillies are atop the NL East by a game, so his slump has not really spread to the rest of the team. Nonetheless, this is a situation that warrants monitoring considering that Harper is about 15 minutes into a $330 million contract.
