Tom Wilson Comments on Bryce Harper’s Brawl

For those that may have missed it yesterday, the Washington Nationals’ Bryce Harper was involved in a bench-clearing brawl in San Francisco. Naturally, the Capitals’ “big heavy” Tom Wilson provided commentary on the technical aspects of the fighting done by Harper. 

The brawl occurred in the top of the 8th inning when Harper was beamed with a fastball by San Francisco Giants pitcher, Hunter Strickland:

Later in the afternoon, Capitals’ forward Tom Wilson reached out to Harper via Twitter. We’re pretty sure Wilson was just being nice to his District friend.

Not that we want to promote fighting in sports, but Wilson may have a nice little side gig brewing, showing baseball players how to really throw-down. We give Harper an ‘A’ for effort, but a ‘D-‘ for execution.
