Papelbon vs Harper in dugout fight


No matter where he goes he'll still be a jerk.......



WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals season began to unravel around the time they acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies and pushed Drew Storen to the setup role.

On Sunday at Nationals Park, the Phillies happened to witness the ugliest moment of this disastrous Nationals season. Not surprisingly, it featured the Phils' former closer.

In the eighth inning of the Phillies' 12-5 win, Papelbon and star Bryce Harper fought in the Nationals dugout. Papelbon had words for Harper when the National League MVP front-runner returned to the dugout after flying out, and when Harper chirped back, Papelbon shoved him against the wall by his neck before teammates separated them.

Matt Williams pulled Harper from the game but permitted Papelbon, who recorded the final out of the eighth, to come back out to pitch the ninth. Asked after the game why, the much-maligned Nationals manager responded: "He's our closer. In a tie game, he's in the ball game in the ninth inning."

Re: Papelbon vs Harper in dugout fight

Papelbon has been suspended by the Nationals for the dugout fight with Harper. His Jerseys have also been removed from their stores at the stadium. Looks like Pap will be looking for another team soon.

That's ashame.

Just goes to show what a ME...ME kind of player he is.
Would have loved to see him try that with Jayson Werth.

Re: Papelbon vs Harper in dugout fight

He is a member of that rare species that, even when they get smashed right in the mouth, continue to aggravate people. Someday that mouth of his and his attitude will cross paths with someone who is long on action and shot on words. Jerk is too kind of a descriptive word for him; but this is a family board so it will have to do.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

I give Washington credit for addressing quickly.
