What did he think would happen after signing with the division rival Philadelphia Phillies during the offseason?

Former Washington Nationals star outfielder Bryce Harper and his Phillies took to Nationals Park one day after being eliminated from playoff contention.

Things apparently turned ugly with Nationals fans heckling Harper. The former NL MVP didn’t take too kindly to it.

We’re not exactly too sure what was said. It could have crossed the line. However, Harper is going to get even more crap for these postgame comments.

As his Phillies were eliminated from playoff contention, the Nationals have already clinched a spot in the postseason. It was not a banner first season for Harper in the City of Brotherly Love.

Harper concluded Wednesday’s game hitting .260 with 34 homers and 109 RBI. The stats aren’t too shabby. Philadelphia’s performance this season. Well, that’s a different story.
