Remember that Barry Bonds-Bryce Harper comparison we profiled a few days ago? Bonds claimed that Harper is a "beast," but "not even close" to him in terms of career stats.
That may be true, but Harper's numbers keep getting stronger. A great example came on Thursday against the Braves. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning, Harper smacked his first career grand slam to put his team up 4-1.
The Nationals won the game 6-2. Harper is the eighth-youngest player in MLB history to reach 100 home runs. The reigning AL MVP is off to a fast start this young season, batting .259 with two homers.

There are no signs of Harper letting up. After all, it's still April.
