Right field: Bryce Harper vs Curtis Granderson
- Edge: Nationals
Granderson has been great this year. He is getting on base, hitting homeruns, and doing just about everything the Mets asked of him when he signed that big deal a season ago. He is once again a threat at the plate.
Unfortunately for Granderson his competition is Bryce Harper, and Harper is quite good. He is a certain MVP candidate and Triple Crown contender (only 73 RBI’s make it a long shot). While Harper maybe the most disliked player in baseball, his ability ranks him in the top-five in baseball. Harper can have maturity issues which sometimes boils over onto the field which he demonstrated by getting into with an umpire and getting ejected in an important game against the Mets. If you read about his path to becoming a professional, that maturity issue sort of makes sense.
Harper’s maturity aside, the guy is an amazing talent. He may not win any congeniality awards but he certainly gives the Nationals the edge in right.
