Bryce Harper hit one a country kilometer in Toronto last night, offered a great quote

Bryce Harper hit his seventh homer of the season last night, and it was a doozy. Watch it here.

It was listed at 438 feet, but it was way high when it hit that sign next to the restaurant level and would have had a lot more distance in it if it had been able to fly free. All the more impressive: he had to reach out a little to get to that breaking ball, which could have sapped some of his power.

And the legend grows. And if the homer wasn’t enough to make the legend grow, his response to a reporter’s question did.

He was asked after the game if -- because it’s legal for 19 year-olds to drink in Canada -- he was going to go get a celebratory beer. His response: “That’s a clown question, bro.”

So, so good. And if you think I’m not gonna beat that one into the ground over the next few weeks you’re simply not familiar with my work.
