Watch: Bryce Harper throws bat in meltdown after getting ejected

Bryce Harper became the only player to be ejected from a game twice this season after letting home plate umpire Chris Segal hear it after he struck out swinging.

In the bottom of the eighth inning during his at-bat against the Brewers, Harper argued two called strikes before flipping out at Segal after Josh Hader struck him out.

Harper kicked dirt in the direction of Segal and threw his bat in disgust after being promptly ejected. He then got in Segal’s face before Nationals teammate Daniel Murphy intervened.

A bit of a rise here for Smith from No. 7 to No. 3. What it comes down to for me is that, outside of Fultz, Smith has the most upside of any lead guard in this draft. He’s the best, most explosive athlete of the group, particularly seen by the fact that he’s making over 60 percent of his shots at the rim in the halfcourt while getting to the basket for 32 percent of his attempts there.

He’s hitting 37 percent of his 3s, which is impressive Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping given that about two-thirds of his attempts come off the dribble. Those two skills are extremely important when it comes to efficient NBA scoring. My major concern earlier in the year was effort level, and while that’s still a Cheap Jerseys Direct Coupon Code concern consistency-wise, he’s turned it on when necessary.

Overall, Smith has the kind of talent to be a top point guard in the NBA for years to come as long as his skinny frame holds up.
