Bryce Harper baseball phenom: SI cover story

Really interesting cover story from the latest Sports Illustrated.

From Senior Writer Tom Verducci, "Baseball's Lebron" is a extremely well written look at a guy that many scouts are viewing as a can't-miss prospect. The subtitle pretty much tells what the story reveals in greater detail:

"His name is Bryce Harper. You don't know him, But every big league scouting director does. He hits the ball a desert mile, clocks 96 on the gun, and he's only 16, more advanced than A-Rod and Junior were at the same age. and his ambition is as great as his talent."

Good stuff.
