If baseball is known for its lengthy list of unwritten rules, then Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is known as the guy who doesn't mind breaking a few of them.
In a recent interview with ESPN The Magazine, Harper, the 2015 MLB National League MVP, was critical of some of those unwritten rules, calling baseball a "tired sport."
"It's a tired sport, because you can't express yourself. You can't do what people in other sports do. I'm not saying baseball is, you know, boring or anything like that, but it's the excitement of the young guys who are coming into the game now who have flair."
