Nationals star Bryce Harper hit his league leading 6th homerun on Sunday night against the Mets. His monster start to the season at the plate helps overlook his defensive mistakes.

Harper followed up his homerun with a pitiful attempt at a foul ball. He seemed to have no idea how close to the stands he actually was and turtled up instead of attempting to catch the ball.
*The ball is lava*

But at least his face was warm. This is a play you have to make, no matter how many homeruns you hit. That is unless you’re planning to make the switch to the American League in free agency so you can become a DH.
