Inside Bryce Harper's Mind

Our own Dan Hellie sat down for a chat with Bryce Harper during a recent break in spring training.

Near the end of the interview, Hellie got the answers to some of the questions we’ve been dying to ask the Nats' young phenom. The whole interview is worth the five minutes, but if you don’t have the time we’ve pulled out the highlights.

Some of the answers might surprise you, and most will remind that he’s only 18 years old.

...probably my brother
[Ed. note: D’oh!]

Your brother? I was looking for a chick. Pretend you’re single…
I’m single? Probably the girl from Tokyo Drift.
[Ed. note: We assume he’s talking about Nathalie Kelley. Damn good choice, Bryce.]

So there you have it, a deep look into the mind of Bryce Harper. Now, if we could only get in on that golf foursome…
