This was one of Harper’s more impressive home runs of the season, his 17th of the year. This one will be much more memorable then the first one he hit off Teheran this year for a couple of reasons.
And that, led to this:
I’m all for playing the game the right way, but no one did anything to Justin Upton or his teammates after he slow-walked his home run the previous night.
Have to commend Harper for not charging the mound here – his worthless team needs him right now. And I cannot believe the Nationals didn’t have the stones to retaliate. That’s honestly as big of a sign that exists that the game has passed old Davey Johnson by.
And then there’s this:
Nothing like a few Official team twitter accounts throwing barbs at eachother; most likely a couple of college interns who will be relieved of their duties soon. Would love to ask the Braves teen that is running the control deck on twitter what Harper is supposed to do differently there?
