Bryce Harper, last year’s number one overall pick by the Washington Nationals, is in trouble.

In less than 24 hours, according to the Nats Enquirer blog, t-shirts have appeared with the saying “Dropping Bombs, Blowing Kisses.” This is the stuff that raises a player from ordinary to legendary.

Bryce that’s the way the game is played.
