Bryce Harper just got ejected from his first tournament game, arguing a called third strike.

This ejection, Nightengale continues, might also cost Harper the next game in the tournament he is currently playing in with the College of Southern Nevada due to a mandatory suspension.

Great way for Harper to dispel the rumors of having the worst makeup ever for an amateur player, right? You would think he would be extra careful to control that negative energy after the Baseball America article was published a little over a month ago.

The Nationals still have to draft him with the first pick in the 2010 draft and I wouldn't call it a warning sign yet, but it is something for the Nationals to keep an eye on in light of the past instances where he has shown he cannot always control his emotions.
