Katie Ledecky wants Bryce Harper to hang out by pool if suspended

The Nationals, as second baseman Daniel Murphy described it, felt the plunking three years after Harper hit a pair of towering postseason home runs off Strickland was "completely uncalled for".

To put things in some context, this was the first time Hunter Strickland had faced Harper since the 2014 National League Division Series when Harper hit two monster home runs off him, as Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan notes. "Posey, the source said, was drawing unfair criticism for failing to defend his teammate when in reality he was adhering to his teammate's - or perhaps manager Bruce Bochy's - wishes". He stared Strickland down as he rounded second and yelled back at the mound as he took his gear off in the dugout.

Posey told reporters after the game why he didn't get involved in the brawl, but did not mention a deal between Strickland. Posey is the most respected player on the team, he's basically the team captain, and generally has his teammates' backs in these types of situations. Next time, Bryce, work on the helmet throw a little bit. The MLB will likely try to send a message to both teams that fighting is not going to be tolerated at this level.

"I know he (Harper) took him deep in the playoffs a couple of times". Dusty Baker praised the way the Giants coaching staff handled the incident, and lauded the fact that the umpires ejected only Harper and Strickland, the two main combatants.

Matt Wieters is fourth among NL catchers in his first season in the National League, behind the St. Louis Cardinals' Yadier Molina (303,857), Chicago Cubs' catcher Wilson Contreras (355,289) and San Francisco Giants' backstop Buster Posey (559,428).

"I think it's more risky than people realize", Francona said.

An enraged Harper charged the mound, threw his helmet (he was way off target with the toss) and the two exchanged punches as the benches cleared. There was some speculation that Harper was reacting to Strickland saying after Game 1 that he would throw Harper more fastballs. Harper said. "You never want to get suspended or anything like that, but sometimes you just have to go get 'em".

"Well I mean after it happened, I kind of saw Harper point", Posey said in the locker room, per KNBR.com. Earlier in May, the Atlanta Braves hit the Blue Jays' Jose Bautista for flipping his bat after a home run - while the Jays trailed by five runs. Strickland and Harper were both in the wrong, but Strickland certainly seems to have more to lose from this than Harper.

Roark (5-2) ran his career record to 6-0 against the Giants by scattering six hits and a walk. But they and the Giants will feel those effects, Tuesday and beyond, until both men serve whatever punishment the league decides they earned.
