Bryce Harper tries to sell Giancarlo Stanton on the Nationals

Patrick McDermott

Bryce Harper risks the wrath of MLB by telling the disgruntled Marlin to "Get some red, white, and blue."

So, this has been a busy week for Bryce Harper. On Monday, he was voted National League Rookie of the Year by the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA). Then on Tuesday, as the Miami Marlins engaged in one of their semi-regular fire sales, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton Tweeted this.

To which Harper responded with this tweet (since deleted because OMG ALL THE TAMPERING VIOLATIONS)

For the record, here are Stanton's numbers in 39 games and 161 plate appearances against Washington: .341/.429/.739/1.168, 14 home runs, 32 RBI, and a tOPS of 156. Maybe there's a good reason for Harper to want Stanton on his side.
