Bryce Harper's Power Has Never Been More Prevalent Than This Season With Phillies

With all the flak Bryce Harper has been receiving this season about barely being able to hit over .250, his power certainly hasn't abandoned his vicious uppercut swing.

In fact, it's become even more important to his game.

As someone who's been heralded for his power since the age of 15, the six-time All-Star continues to carry some god-like power in his bat, even if it may not make contact with the ball most of the time.

Every single ball that Harper hits in this clip has an intensity to it that's difficult to match by any other MLB player. However, that hasn't helped the Phillies a ton, as they sit three games back of the second Wild Card spot in a playoff race that's sure to heat up.

Maybe if Harper continues to hit these moonshots more consistently, the Phillies will have a chance to sneak into the playoffs, an atmosphere Harper has notably struggled in.

If anything, at least Phillies fans always have a chance at seeing one of Harper's bombs every time they watch him play, like they just did against the Braves.
