Cue the complaints from fake tough guys:

“Harper is missing games because his wife had a baby? What a pussy! He’s not a team player!”

You know that some cornball is thinking that right now.

But congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Harper, who were expecting a baby boy. Bryce will be replaced temporarily by Maikel Franco, who was called up from Triple-A:

Harper has been raking in August, posting a 1.029 OPS with 20 RBI, nine home runs, and 19 hits. The Phils have won 6 of 8 games and now face the dreaded Marlins, who suck against everybody but our guys, so go figure. Vince Velasquez is on the mound tonight opposite Hector Noesi.
