USA Today reporter Ted Berg was at Citi Field as the Washington Nationals took on the New York Mets in the Opening Day contest. He interviewed the Nats’ young phenom Bryce Harper and received an interesting answer to one of his questions.

Harper burst onto the scene a year before Puig did and both have the same kind of energy and zeal for the game they play. Both Harper and Puig play all out and both have been criticized and praised for doing so. They both tend to raise some eyebrows and rub players and fans the wrong way.

But both are destined to be in the game for years to come.
