Bryce Harper is super-excited to be heading to big league camp. He is determined to make the most of things and, if he can at all help it, break camp with the big club. And how’s he gonna do it? He told Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post:
“I’m going work as hard as I can, keep my mouth shut and play”
I give Harper a 66.7% chance of making the big club.
A lot of teams do funny promo videos during spring training. The Seattle Mariners have led the league in this category for years now, with their marketing and p.r. folks producing and a lot of game and sometimes hammy players starring in some excellent clips. They’re doing them again this year, if you’re curious.
The Milwaukee Brewers have hopped on the humor train in 2018, and their latest entry in this category of commercials is excellent. It’s their riff on “The Sandlot.”
The biggest difference: Smalls really could kill you in this one. Brett Phillips is a lot more jacked than the kid who played Scotty in the original was.
The Beast, however, is just as terrifying now as he was in 1993.
