in the past 4 games we've had with the Nationals, Bryce Harper has been beaned by braves pitching 4 times. Although one may have been accidental by Alex Wood, I believe the other two we're intentional and over the top. As much as I love the Braves, I really don't like that we're continuing to throw at him. To make matters worse, our fans are standing and cheering when he gets beaned. I'm all for some heated rivalry with the Nats as they will most likely be our biggest rival over the next several seasons, I don't believe this is something should be known for. The first thing I thought of when Harper was hit in the 8th inning was we were acting like New York sports fans and that kind of made my stomach turn.
What are your thoughts?
