Each salad wants some dressing.
Bryce Harper’s flowing mane has been one in all baseball’s most analyzed heads of hair since his arrival within the sport in 2012. With 242 profession house runs, there is a respectable probability he is doubled that in bottles of hair gel he is used over the course of his big-league profession.
As with anybody who’s used some form of gel, pomade, mousse, wax, hairspray or different, that stuff can get sticky (and sizzling and itchy), particularly throughout the summer time months.
So it is no shock that, in a light-hearted second throughout Wednesday’s Phillies-Nationals matchup, Max Scherzer and Harper’s former teammates in Washington wished umpires to test the outfielder’s hair for sticky substances.

Harper had a very good snicker about it, so all’s effectively that ends effectively.
Loads of drama has ensued from the Phillies-Nationals sequence amid the league’s first few days of inspecting pitchers for overseas substances. Scherzer was checked 3 times on Tuesday evening, as soon as that was requested by Phils supervisor Joe Girardi.
Nats GM Mike Rizzo wasn’t pleased with Girardi requesting the substance test, calling the Phillies supervisor a “con artist” in a radio hit on Wednesday. (Extra like radio hit job.)
After the strain earlier within the week, it is good to see a little bit little bit of levity with gamers amidst this sticky scenario.
Somebody please move the pomade.
