Reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper is passionate about winning, and on Monday he used some strong words to describe how he approaches every game.

"I’ve always said if my organization likes me and the guys on the team like me, then that’s all I care (about)," Harper told 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier. "I think going onto a field every single day, I want to kick your teeth in. I want to beat you by 100 runs and do everything we can to win every single game we play. You might like me after we get out of the field, but in between the lines, you’re probably going to hate me. And that’s fine. I don’t care."

Since the beginning of the season, the Washington Nationals outspoken 23-year-old outfielder has been an advocate for making baseball fun again, while getting away from the old school way of playing the game. And although he's happy to promote a new way of life in baseball, his main focus is still on winning.

"Everything I do in between the lines is to win ball games," he explained. "I try to respect my opponents as much as I can and do everything I can, but at the end of the day, I just want to win. I just want to do everything I can to win for this organization, put my heart and soul into every single game, every single pitch and hopefully at the end of the day we can win and do things we need to do to get to that next level."

Harper's ferocious approach seems to be working, as he's hitting .271/.385/.659 with nine home runs and 24 RBIs for the NL East-leading Nationals.
