Bryce Harper was angry on Friday night. So was Davey Johnson. And Adam LaRoche. And Scott Hairston and just about everyone else in the visiting dugout.
First, Bryce Harper gets hit with a pitch, the third time in three games against the Braves. It was completely unnecessary.
The Nationals bench erupts. The camera quickly finds Scott Hairston, whose Angry Face is clearly the best among the outraged players and coaches.
Bryce Harper is upset too. And he stares down the pitcher.
Freddie Freeman tries to chat up Harper, who’s clearly not in the mood. If the pain in his arm doesn’t suppress his chattiness, surely the cheering from the classless Braves fans does.
Jayson Werth makes the Braves pay by immediately tying the game on a base hit. Werth’s hit doesn’t dissuade him from displaying his own Angry Face on first base.
Meanwhile, in the dugout, most Nationals are maintaining their own Angry Faces.
The Angry Faces eventually ceded to Sad Faces, as Justin Upton won the game with a walk-off home run. But I don’t really feel like getting into that right now.
