Nationals Bryce Harper Named to All-Star Team Replacing Giancarlo Stanton
Strictly a PR move since his numbers suggest that he isn’t anything but a very solid player at this stage of his career, but the ratings needed a boost, so MLB made sure he got into the game.
Bryce Harper is an All-Star, replacing injured Giancarlo Stanton. He is youngest position player in #ASG history.
