Poor Bryce Harper doesn't like hitting in Camden Yards

Who doesn't like Camden Yards?

Bryce Harper, apparently.

After Saturday's 7-4 win over the Orioles in which he crushed a home run to right center, Harper told Washington reporters that he's not a fan of Camden Yards.

"I can't stand it, actually," Harper said. "I can't see very well, so hopefully in the daytime (on Sunday) I see it better. I feel like it's a little dark."

He roped a double Sunday and is now 6-for-30 with 10 strikeouts at Camden Yards.

His feelings for Camden Yards didn't change after the Nationals captured the series with Sunday's 3-2 win.

"I don't like hitting here," he said. "I just really don't. Plain and simple. I mean, I hate it."

He probably should have been thrown out of the game Sunday after whining about a strike call by Ed Hickox. In fact, we're not sure how he stayed in the game. The Blue Jays' Jose Bautista got tossed -- finally -- for mouthing off about balls and strikes Sunday against the Kansas City Royals.

Poor Bryce. He's only hitting .339 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI this season.

We think he'll be OK the rest of the regular season. But you never know, a Beltway Series isn't out of the question.

He could receive quite a reception at Camden Yards.
