Blooper fools Bryce Harper into signing away his money

Blooper is a master prankster.

On Sunday, before the Braves drilled the Phillies for 15 runs, he egged Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper into signing a declaration marking June 16, “Bryce Harper Day.” (Like that would ever happen.)

Harper acquiesced. The Braves’ mascot immediately revealed Harper had just signed an oversized check in Blooper’s name  for $330 million. Harper, playfully, chased Blooper and reacquired his moola.

It’s the second time Blooper has pranked a major leaguer out of some record money. Earlier this season, he duped San Diego’s Manny Machado out of $300 million.

Blooper has mad-scheming skills and $630 million clams.
