E-Mail Bag: Brett Harper

Isn’t Brett Harper a career minor leaguer? I had always thought as much but was never sure and then with your post on him getting the player of the month award in the Minors it brought him back into my train of thought. Please let me know so I can put this question to rest.

Jessica via E-mail

Well Jessica, you must be getting Harper mixed up with Andy Tracy for some reason because Harper has been in the Mets system since, only, 2001. It looks like Harper is surly going to be the Mets first baseman of the future and with each passing day it looks more apparent that he is ready for the promotion, but with Delgado sitting on first until 2009, it looks like Harper is just going to have to wait his turn.

I hope that answers your question.
