Baseball analysis is difficult enough trying to decipher WHIP, WAR and OPS, but author Mark Judge took it to a whole new level with this political commentary, comparing rising stars Bryce Harper and Jason Heyward. Mr. Judge, who declared Harper a "conservative hero," points to one particular play involving the two, where Harper legged out an extra base on a would-be single, which Heyward lazily fielded:

Heyward's bungle showed a complacency, if not indolence, that Harper threatens to destroy, but it also could be a metaphor for the collapse of the old liberal order. Heyward was like one of those public school teachers who, because they are a union member, can't be fired and so are relegated to the "rubber room" to sit and read the paper and gather a check for the rest of their lives.

A commenter responded with this rebuttal:

The Nationals picked Harper first overall because they had the worst record in baseball. They didn't earn that pick through hard work, in fact they worked the least and were rewarded for it. That sounds like income redistribution to me. Bryce Harper is a socialist hero.
