Earlier today we talked about how Orioles number one draft pick Dylan Bundy said that he would throw at Bryce Harper if he blew him a kiss. Today, Bryan Harper took to twitter and reacted to Bundy’s comments.
So what is the full story then? An entire country thinks that Bryce Harper arrogantly blew a kiss to a low-A pitcher after sitting and admiring a home run he hit.
I’m not naive enough to think that the pitcher in question didn’t yell something to Harper, but I know that happens to athletes in every sport and it’s rare to see an athlete respond in such an arrogant way.
I’m sure Albert Pujols has had a pitcher yell something smart to him after he trotted around the bases, but I’ve never seen him blow a kiss to anyone.
If you wanted a O’s/Nats rivalry, you might just have to wait a couple years. So far, here it comes.
