Major League Baseball suspends Bryce Harper, Hunter Strickland for role in bench-clearing brawl


On one point, though, both sides appear to agree: The matter is closed, and there's no reason for any carryover tonight or in the future. If they do hit me, I don't know. In this case, that would be catcher Buster Posey, but it has been noted that he did his best to stay out of the brawl that took place on Monday. In our mind, it was not a team act but a selfish act on his part. "It's more selfish because he probably won't ever get to come to the plate for there to be any retaliation". "It's not who we are (to throw at people) and they're trying to win a ballgame just like us".

San Francisco Giants right-hander Hunter Strickland spoke to reporters after the brawl with Washington Nationals player Bryce Harper on Monday, May 29. In most instances where the star player of one team is intentionally hit, the other team will target the star player of the pitcher's team. "Nothing's really going to happen".

In theory, the punishment seems about even given each player's role, at least a first glance. For now, both Harper and Hunter Strickland will remain on the active rosters for their respective teams, as the appeals process will get underway. Major League Baseball said both players planned to appeal, so they were eligible to play in Tuesday night's game between the clubs.

After the first homer, Strickland said he wasn't afraid of Harper.

"I don't want to go into a baseball game trying to fight somebody, especially when it's in the past, so in the past it's not even relevant anymore, " Harper said. "We'll figure it out". "I'm pretty sure Harper was lucky that they collided, because Samardzija was coming in to do some damage". "After that's settled, I'll take the consequences".

"We can all speculate", Bochy said. "A guy throws a 98-mph fastball and it can do a lot of damage, so you do what you've got to do". "This was a personal thing".

Harper later expressed incredulity that Strickland could still be nursing a grudge. Nor did the two ever speak in the 2 1/2 years since the 2014 NLDS.

"It's just insane that it even happened yesterday", he told reporters, as quoted by MASN's Mark Zuckerman. "So know that. But, I'm just saying, and I'm not gonna tell you who told him, I'm just saying that he's been told, 'stay out of the pile, '" Krukow said.

“You cant really worry about what Major League Baseball is going to do because you dont really know, ” Harper said.

"It doesn't happen as much as it used to, which I think is a good thing, but it's going to be there". It's just a insane situation. Nothing said and what happened yesterday is over and I just hate that everybody is making Bryce the culprit but he was really the victim.
