Bryce Harper's August just went from bad to worse.
Harper, whose ball club is currently mired in a 4-12 slump and just saw their record dip below .500, was already having a rough first 2 1/2 weeks of the month. But at least he was still 'dating' a supermodel.
That all changed on Monday, however.
Back in June, Nina Agdal, a model from Denmark, appeared in an entertaining video alongside the Nats' outfielder for New Era, and the two showed some nice chemistry together. She even posted a couple of photos on her Instagram showing support for Harper and his team:

But then, out of nowhere, Agdal did the most hurtful thing to #34 possible: She dropped him for the man Harper is compared to seemingly every day, the guy he'll battle for the next 15 years, and the player she knew would affect him the most.
That's right folks: She left Bryce for Mike Trout.
See for yourself:

Man, that's cold.
No one really knows what inspired Agdal to do this sinister deed -- especially considering the Angels are having just as difficult a time staying afloat as the Nats -- but sheesh, she certainly showed no remorse in 'cheating' on Bryce. Life comes at you fast, doesn't it?
Maybe this is the thing that finally gets Harper and his teammates going. If the 22-year-old hits 10 home runs in the upcoming three-game series in Colorado that starts Tuesday, we'll know why.
