Having watched the play occur live and then a couple dozen times on replay I’m not sure how Bryce Harper could possibly have avoided some sort of significant injury while crashing full speed, face first into the outfield wall last night. But apparently he did.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that X-rays came back negative and Harper has been diagnosed with a bruised left shoulder and left knee. He passed a concussion test immediately after the collision, didn’t lose any teeth, and was only bleeding from a laceration on his neck.

If you haven’t seen the play yet, here’s MLB.com’s video:

      Theres a fine line between playing hard and playing dumb.

      What a meat head. You can’t play if your hurt. What was his last tweet?
      “NERDS!”

    You can’t play hard from the DL, kid. I’m not saying he should morph into Bobby Abreu, but play smart first.

    Yeah, the landscape is littered with those who played hard and shortened their careers: Eric Byrnes, Rusty Greer, et al. None had Harper’s talent. Maybe next time do what the seasoned pros do and count the steps on the track to the wall before the game. Or , as Doug Glanville puts it: “Ball, wall, ball”.

    Dude needs to grow up ….love watching him… but at this rate his body will be a shell of its former self by the age of 25 ——

    He’s 20, only player outfield for a year.

    The read and his route were silly, and he didn’t know where the wall was. The new Super Dave Osbourne?

    The warning track was under his feet. He ignored it. Clown play bro. No really, it was stupid.

    This board wreaks of Jealousy but it smells great. Just like ben’s chili bowl.
