Bryce Harper missed a lot of time last season -- 44 games to be exact -- due in no small part to a knee injury. The 21-year-old required surgery on his left knee to treat a case of bursitis, a condition that was most likely spurred on by a collision with the outfield wall in late April of last year. With such a bright future in store for a healthy Harper, the Nationals and their fans are very concerned about the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year's ability to avoid injury in the future. This fear has ignited a debate about the all-out way in which Harper plays the game.
Bryce Harper is not willing to participate in this debate.
