There has been no confirmation from Camp Boras that this Bryce Harper Facebook page is real, but I will say this: If it's a fake, the mischief maker behind it has kept it rather mundane for the past few months before dropping the two contract posturing status updates above, as well as the "If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin,'" missive from July 14.
The No. 1 pick of the Washington Nationals has until Aug. 16 to sign a professional contract and I assume Scott Boras won't even pick up his dedicated line to general manager Mike Rizzo until that day arrives. Until then, explore the predictable social media presence — complete with "your"s instead of "you're"s — that the 17-year-old baseball phenom is apparently keeping these days.
