That's the thing, you're 17 so it's cool if you admire Harper and can't see past the numbers. Proceed with what you are doing, I'll be moving on.....

Harper isn't near as athletic. He will hit more HR , but all around player is Trout. Harper has AB's .. where's his bases , plays in the field ? Harper is completely overrated. The only people talking about him is ESPN .. players and managers are in awe of Trout. Just reality.

What ??
LOL
You clearly did not collect baseball in the 90's
Chipper was as BIG a dick as Harper is.

When I look at the NL list I find it sad the closest person to being worthwhile of a vote is Bourne


Bot...right.
So you DL'ed Kbot and call it "writing" ??



Did Freese and peavy

Everyone,good luck to your player choices

Identical OPS this year. Take off your Bryce Harper pajamas and actually look at the numbers before you spout off unfounded assumptions like that.

Does anybody really think Harper deserves to be in the All-Star game? I sure as hell don't.

Talked to some of my friends, who tell me they have (all told) voted for Harper over 10,000 times as of now. They're continuing to vote as we speak.

Jeter makes the all-star every year (not this year?), so Harper is just as deserving.

I would love to hear the logic behind this.

What a short memory people have.

People are backing their selection or non-selection of Harper with stats. How do we explain Jeter? Last year, at the break he was batting .256 2 HRs, 20 RBIs. Defensively, he is one of the worst SS's. Most will agree he is not the same SS as he once was. However, he did pull of the game because of injuries I think. Nevertheless, he was still voted in as a starter.

It's a popularity contest, Harper is popular and will get in, like Jeter in previous years.

So Harper deserves to get in because Jeter didn't always deserve to make it?

OPS isn't the only stat that shows how good a player is. Look at the other stats. Even then, Chipper has significantly lower amount of at bats than Bryce. So, of course right now, Chipper's batting average will be higher than Bryce's. But, it's been dropping lately, so when Chipper catches up to Bryce in at bats (if he even does), then expect his batting average to be much lower than Bryce's. Chipper also hasn't made many great defensive plays like Bryce has, or extended regular singles into doubles like Bryce has, or steal home and many other bases like Bryce has. Overall, Bryce has been the better player.

I'm going to vote for Chipper because he should be a all star in his last year. His average has not been dropping he's got a 7 game hitting streak. He was hitting the best when he got hurt so he's number would have been a lot better if he didn't miss a month.

It's the internet age...People have no idea how players back in the day would have acted if they had access to smart phones, twitter, etc. The media never portrayed people like they do today......Who's the say Chipper Never was cocky when he was drafted? Espn didn't nitpick every little thing like they do now

Exactly my point. I agree. That's why I always hate when people point out every single little thing that Bryce has done, that is negative.

To all you people who think Bryce isn't a good guy, or a great baseball player, or doesn't deserve to go to the ASG, here are 12 reasons why to vote Bryce Harper for the ASG...

1. He's got pop (500+ feet home runs).
2. He always hustles (stretching singles into doubles many times).
3. He doesn't take his at bats into the field (Going 0-7, but making a great catch anyway).
4. He's got a flair for the dramatic (walk off single against the Mets).
5. He woke up early in the morning after an extra-inning walk-off to read to children. Where was Harper the morning after that historic event? At Bonnie Brae Elementary School in Burke, VA, reading to third graders.
6. He's a fast learner (striking out to Livan Hernandez's eephus pitch, but then homering off him the next at-bat, and the same kind of pitch).
7. One great young player deserves another. Mike Trout, the Los Angeles Angels 20 year-old outfield phenom, has already been selected to the game. Trout and Harper have become nearly synonymous in the weeks leading up to the game. For one to be there without the other just feels… Wrong.
8. He’s clutch. After rallying from a 7-0 deficit, the Nationals trailed 10-9 entering the ninth inning in Colorado last week. They didn’t trail for long. Solo home run to tie the game.
9. He’s charitable. When a Colorado brewery tried to capitalize on his “clown question, bro” phrase by naming a new offering after it in time for the Nationals recent visit to Colorado, Harper asked that they donate proceeds from sales to the family of Celena Hollis, a Denver police officer who was killed in the line of duty.
10. He’s not content getting just one out. Always looking for a chance to stretch his talents, Harper gunned down the speedy Juan Pierre on May 23 in Philadelphia, turning a failed hit and run into a double play.
11. He’s got swag. After getting intentionally plunked by Cole Hamels, Harper went first to third on a single to left field, then took off for home on Hamels pick-off throw to first base, swiping home for his first Major League steal.
12. He’s a genuine superstar. At age 19, he’s already a national attraction. He plays the game right, and has become one of the most popular players in the sport. Isn’t that what the All-Star Game is all about?

Your hero and idol should not be a 19 year old baseball player, no matter how good he may be. End of thread.

I have nothing against Bryce Harper, but for all those who say he deserves it more than Chipper, when statistically they are virtually tied. 20 years from now when Harper is looking at trying to make his last ASG are you going to say he deserves it over the new hot shot?

Seanie, no offense you are 17, thats less years alive then Chipper has been in the game, heck Harper was born barely before the year Jones made his debut. I am not too far removed from being 17, but I don't understand how you can admire Harper. I have respect for the way he plays the game and I understand he is young, I don't think he has done anything overly stupid. Jones has my respect and admiration, as much as I disliked his braves in the 90's, because of the way he handled himself in his career. I don't just mean, publicly, he has had great devotion to his team, teammates, and baseball in general. Now just because I say Jones has these characteristics doesn't mean I am saying Harper doesn't, what I am saying is Jones is a proven Vet, who deserves one last curtain call for a great career. Harper will have the next 20 years likely to play his way into the ASG.
