Am I missing something? Why is it that other MLB players look down on Bryce Harper?
According to ESPN, Bryce Harper is the most overrated player in baseball according to a poll conducted anonymously of MLB players. Of the players who voted, 24% said Bryce Harper was the most overrated. Coming in second was Yasiel Puig. And in third was Alex Rodriguez.
I know Bryce had a bad reputation coming up through the minor leagues, but it now looks like a lot of that was exaggerated. Since coming up to the big show, Bryce has been quite mature and did not play into the likely media-hyped and manufactured story that he was a cocky teenage player.
Nonetheless, he is still trying to shake off the image that the media portrayed. Hopefully this is the year he shuts everyone up.
