The Nationals And Cubs Need To Work On Their Bench-Clearing Brawl Technique

#NATITUDE was on full display tonight at Nationals Park as an inside pitch to Bryce Harper, preceded by some jawing between Nationals third base coach Bo Porter and Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk, led to perhaps the most anticlimactic bench-clearing brawl in baseball history. Lots of pushing, some yelling, bullpens emptied, yet no actual brawling came to pass. Then again, when you're the team comfortably atop your division, it's probably wise not to take any bait from a team 31 games out of first. [MLB]
