Bryce Harper: NL Rookie of the Month

He also won best picture on the log flume.

Bryce Harper has been named the NL Rookie of the Month for September. He beat out other qualified candidates like…uh…sorry I don’t know of any since ESPN doesn’t seem to acknowledge other rookies exist aside from Harper and Trout.

Harper had 26 runs, 7 HR, a .651 SLG, 14 RBI and 4 steals en route to helping the Nationals win the division. He really showed up in September after a late summer of some disappointingly low productivity at times. But can you blame him? High school aged kids get lazy during the summer. At least he’s back into form in time for the school year.

Final Score: Nationals 4, Rockies 1

Dame of the Game:

Gio Gonzalez: 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 6 K. Gio’s ability to pitch effectively in extreme heat is surprising only until you remember that he is constantly giving off energy he channels from the earth’s hot magma core.

The Giology Professor is out for the day with some kind of conference or terminal illness, they didn’t tell me which. I’ll be your substitute teacher for the day. My name is Mr. Neptooth. Here, let me write that on the board for you like it’s pronounced:

“Mr. Grrapfth-SHUHHNK-sog”

Say “hi, Mr. Neptooth.” No, that’s not right at all. Let’s just move on.

Now I know this is supposed to be a Giology class, but I don’t know much of anything about Giology. I am, however, an expert in Giometry, a related field, so instead I will give you a Giometry lecture.

I assume you are all familiar with Gio Gonzalez? Good, good. Yes, he is the most important area of study in the scientific and mathematics fields. You already know about his role in the the earth, its evolution, and its rocks. I will now tell you how he participates in the world of shapes. Continue reading
