Nationals manager Matt Williams “pissed” at the thought of demoting scuffling Bryce Harper

Nationals manager Matt Williams was asked on Wednesday evening whether there has been any talk of sending struggling outfielder Bryce Harper to Triple-A Syracuse. CSNWashington.com has the video:

So, yeah … not gonna happen. Harper is hitting .207 with a .616 OPS since July 4 and .249 with a .692 OPS overall, but this isn’t a typical slumping 21-year-old. It’s a 21-year-old with 1,299 career plate appearances in the major leagues and a world of raw talent. He’s going to have to figure it out in Washington, not Syracuse.
