Spring training isn’t the most thrilling time in a baseball reporter’s year, but that hasn’t stopped the Washington Post‘s James Wagner from finding his muse in between Bryce Harper‘s deltoids. Below, how to say over and over that Harper is ripped:

  • “His muscular body.”
  • “Athletic, growing and built.”
  • “Broad shoulders and unspeakably high expectations.”
  • “Harper built his body as big and strong as he could.”
  • “Chiseled, linebacker-sized.”
