Smash Mouth calls Phillies’ Bryce Harper a ‘jackass’ for spurning Giants

Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper is a money-hungry “jackass” who deserves the boos he received at Citizens Bank Park the other night, according to 90s rock band Smash Mouth.

The Giants’ offer was shunned. Bryce might as well be walkin’ on the sun.

ESPN - Keown - Bryce Harper is One Very Big Deal

When Harper told his agent, Scott Boras, that he wanted a lifetime deal—with a no-trade clause and none of the agent’s signature opt-outs—Boras said, “Well, teams don’t want to employ you at 35, much less 39, so we’re going to have to give something up to get that.” The casualty, to use the term loosely, was the average annual salary—$25.3 million. Manny Machado’s, to pick one, is higher. Harper didn’t care.

The Bryce Harper saga has gotten so ridiculous Smash Mouth now claims to have inside info

News came down early Monday that the Los Angeles Dodgers had re-entered the race to sign Bryce Harper, which most frustrated fans of the rival San Francisco Giants. Giants fans want Harper hitting dingers into McCovey Cove, and if not, they certainly don’t want him in Dodger Blue.

If you don’t believe us, go ask Smash Mouth.

No, that’s some weird Twitch user or some newfangled social media platform you’ve never heard of. We’re talking about Smash Mouth, the band. You know, the one that sang “All-Star” back in 1999.

Mind you, it’s only slightly more ridiculous than taking Jon Heyman seriously….
