Harper might not have made a lot of friends along the way, but he still looks every bit as advertised, a long-term star, if not a legend in the making. In order to make it through the hype and expectations you have to be a little bit cocky. If his confidence is any indicator, Harper is going to be great right away. Manager Davy Johnson is determined to have the 19-year-old wunderkind make the team this spring and all it will take is a spring as good as the first a year ago. Harper shouldn't be expected to hit .300, 30 homers or steal 30 bases as a rookie, but he is talented enough that nothing should surprise us. A .290-20-80-80-15 line would do nicely relative to draft position.
