There was a morning this spring that Washington Nationals hitting coach Rick Eckstein and outfielder Bryce Harper found themselves in a conversation about opposing starters in the National League East. Eckstein, who recalled the conversation on another morning in Viera, Fla., listened as Harper detailed exactly how he thought one particular pitcher in the division might attack him.
When Harper was done, all Eckstein could say was: "I think you're right."
Eckstein declined then to name the pitcher the two were discussing. But when Roy Halladay's curveball came looping in to Harper in the third inning Tuesday night with runners on second and third, the Phillies up by a run, the 19-year-old was all over it. Secret's out.
