Bryce Harper hears the jeers

Nationals rookie Bryce Harper must be good--he's getting lip it from the fans. 

Someone was yelling "overrated, overrated"  at Harper, but the 18-year-old said he didn't mind. 

"I heard it, you can hear everything out there," Harper told the Washington Post. "You can't really get into that. I've been hearing it since I was in high school, college. It doesn't get old because I love it. I love hearing it. I love people saying that stuff about me. I like all the bad stuff."

Harper is batting .308 with four runs batted in. He is likely to start the season in Class A.
