Must See Video: Jonathan Papelbon fights Bryce Harper in the dugout

The Nationals season has been a disappointment and culminates in a fight between their closer and the best player in the game.

The Nationals season has been a disappointment, after an offseason where they signed AL Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer, the expectations were World Series or bust. Well, their season has been nothing short of a huge cesspool fire, and today tempers flared in the dugout after closer Jonathan Papelbon gave up three runs in his one inning of work.

Check out the vine in the tweet from Yahoo's Jeff Passan:

Here is better video of the fight from Jeff Skversky:

GM Mike Rizzo traded for Papelbon before the July 31st trade deadline and their season went into the proverbial "you know what" after the trade.

I imagine Papelbon won't be a National come 2016, but time will tell.
