Washington Nationals Fight Night: Jonathan Papelbon vs. Bryce Harper

The only unacceptable action occurring during yesterday's Washington Nationals home game against the New York Mets was Jonathan Papelbon grabbing Harper by the throat and pushing him against the wall.  It doesn't matter who started it, Papelbon was wrong and has received his punishment.

Papelbon came to the Nats ballclub on July 28th in a trade with the Phillies.  He still doesn't even have a Nationals Topps baseball card yet.  

Although still a young player, Harper is already in his fourth season with the Nationals, having come up through their farm system. 

Harper was a major part of the Nationals past two post-season appearances and has a good chance winning the NL MVP award this year.
