Bryce Harper got ejected and that isn’t the end of the story

So we all witnessed Bryce Harper get ejected in last nights game at Citi Field. However, reporters spoke to Phillies starter Jake Arrieta about the ejection and the former Cy Young Award winner had this to say, “Look, I mean, he’s got to understand we need him in right field,” Arrieta said to the media. “I don’t care how bad the umpire is. He wasn’t great for either side. I’m out there trying to make pitches, and he misses some calls. So what? We need him out there.”

And now the drama ensues

Arrieta also gave Pete Alonso a head nod of sorts, saying that he didn’t expect Alonso to swing when he doubled to right field. Arrieta states that his intent was to use that change up outside as a set up pitch for a strike out.
