The season is over for the Washington Nationals and outfielder Bryce Harper.
Harper does not plan to watch the post season since the Nationals are not in it telling the Washington Post he will watch College Football instead.
The 20-year-old outfielder is also planning to work out, a-lot.
“Body-wise, I felt pretty good except for when I did run into the walls,” Harper told the Post. “You’re going to have your aches and pains. I think everybody does. That’s just how it is. I think going to the offseason, it’s going to be very nice to take that month off and get recovered, then hopefully get my workouts in and get big as a house and go to spring training.”
I’M NOT TEBOW: Harper does not want to push religion
Harper’s workout plans have a lot to do with how he feels about himself.
“I’m never satisfied with what I do. I don’t think I ever will be. I never have been. I’m not going to sit here and tell you I’m satisfied. We’re not going to the playoffs. We’re not doing anything I set out to do every single year. That’s hard, not being able to get into October and play in the postseason. I’m not satisfied at all.”
Harper was selected to his second All-Star Game and finished the year with a .274/.368/.486 line with 20 home runs and 58 RBI over 118 games. His ability to stay on the field for the full 2014 season will go a long way to the success of the Nationals.
The Nationals finished 84-78 in 2013, manager Davey Johnson’s final season.
