​Two towering home runs in two days. Yeah, it's clear that ​Philadelphia is buying into ​Bryce Harper: The Myth, and Bryce Harper: The Man is delivering. Look at this absolutely beastly shot, careening up towards the rafters in right at Citizens Bank.

Three games into the contract, this man has given the city new life.

Harper's shot off Shane Carle made this one 4-1, which feels insurmountable at this juncture, with so much momentum flowing Philly's way. The entire offense contributed to Thursday's Opening Day victory sans-Harper, and we spent the whole evening theorizing about why it was so important that the Phillies proved they could do it without him.

Just three days later, how quaint do those musings sound? He can do it all himself, folks.
