Braves organist won't stop trolling Nationals star Bryce Harper over free agency

Atlanta Braves organist Matthew Kaminski expertly trolled Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper on Tuesday night, playing “Go Cubs Go” before the outfielder’s final at-bat of the evening.


Kaminski’s keystrokes were an obvious ode to Harper’s impending free agency. The former National League MVP has long been linked to the Chicago Cubs through trustworthy sources and flirtatious dalliances, with his close relationship with Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant serving as a catalyst for it all.

Kaminski lined up a solid soundtrack, covering the Yankees as potential Harper suitors, too. The Braves organist played Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” before Harper’s first at-bat Wednesday:


And there’s more up his sleeve:


Harper grounded out after Kaminski’s rendition of “Go Cubs Go,” so the Braves organist was fortunate not to have been bitten by his own troll. Harper homered earlier in the game — his fourth in the past three games — but by the sixth inning the Braves were well on their to a 13-6 victory on Tuesday.

Given the financial boon coming Harper’s way, “Mo Money Mo Problems” might be the most apt song.

Other hecklers haven’t been so lucky early this season, as Harper jacked a home run just seconds after a Cincinnati Reds fan yelled “overrated” from the Great American Ball Park crowd on Sunday:
