Bryce Harper Make-Up

What we mean when we say 'makeup' - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN: "It's impossible to find any talent evaluator who isn't blown away by Harper's ability on the field, but it's equally difficult to find one who doesn't genuinely dislike the kid. One scout called him among the worst amateur players he's ever seen from a makeup standpoint, with top-of-the-scale arrogance, a disturbingly large sense of entitlement, and on-field behavior that includes taunting opponents. 'He's just a bad, bad guy,' said one front-office official."

Wow. Not a nice thing to say about a 17-year-old. Good job, Mom and Dad.

Bryce Harper will ultimately be his own worst enemy, not the critics. Bryce Harper's parents, coaches and advisor's, including Mr. Boras have all prepared him for success. What no one has prepared him for is Failure. His arrogance and cockiness is a manifestation of his genuine insecurity with himself. That insecurity is derived from the manufacture of the Bryce Harper "Icon", that he may ultimately feel he cannot achieve or sustain in the future. It is the same icon created by "The Natural". His quest for the holy grail is misdirected. Bryce Harper needs to search his soul and discover who Bryce Harper is. Once he has found that, he will then become truly confident and will realize he has no need for arrogance or the feeling of entitlement. It is at that point that he will begin to be loved. Bryce Harper then needs to stop seeking to be the "greatest player that has ever lived". He needs to be directed towards becoming the greatest Bryce Harper that he can be. It will be at that point that he may have a chance to become the icon he has dreamed of becoming through his god given talents and hard work ethic. If Bryce Harper does not understand what is talked about here, tell him to go see Mr Jeter. He'll explain it too him.
