The Orioles 2011 first round draft pick, 18-year-old pitcher Dylan Bundy, had strong words in reaction to Nationals’ prospect Bryce Harper’s blown kiss on a home run Monday night. 105.7 The Fan’s Steve Davis asked Dylan how he would respond if Harper blew him a kiss after going yard to which he responded, “If I was pitching the next game, I would hit him all four at-bats.”
Dylan’s brother Bobby, who pitches for the Orioles at Single-A Frederick, agreed with the comments. “That was a little over the top,” Bobby said.
Harper’s blown kiss has the whole nation talking about baseball etiquette and the gigantic target he has put on his back at just the low-A level. From the Ultimate Warrior facepaint, to the mustache and mohawk, Harper has found ways for fans outside of D.C. to cheer against him.
As the Sun’s Matt Vensel points out, Dylan Bundy predicted that both him and Bobby would be called up on the same day in 2013.
