Marlins’ Ozzie Guillen calls Nationals rookie Bryce Harper ‘unprofessional’ – BostonHerald.com
July 16, 2012 in Regular Season
MIAMI — Since the Nationals arrived this week, Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen had been heaping praise on their 19-year-old rookie outfielder Bryce Harper, who was coming off his first trip to the All-Star Game.
However, after Sunday’s 4-0 loss, Guillen’s compliments turned to contempt as he felt that Harper had shown him disrespect when he stepped to the plate in the fourth inning. While Guillen didn’t want to elaborate, Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison said it had to do with Harper having an illegal amount of pine tar on his bat handle.
