You can read Adam Kilgore’s breakdown of how the Bryce Harper plunking unfolded. And you can check out Dan’s recap of the ensuing Twitter fight, including some cheeky tweets from the Braves, Nats and Orioles team accounts (what the heck, Orioles?).

To round out our coverage of The Brawl That Never Came To Be, here’s the video of how it went down. My favorite part of any potential baseball brawl is the bullpen springing to action. It’s like they’re waiting all game to get involved somehow and OMG SOMETHING IS HAPPENING LET’S GO BOYS.

NSFW if you can read lips.
