So Bryce Harper had a fairly nasty collision with Marlins catcher Rob Brantly in the first inning on Thursday in the process of scoring on a double by Ryan Zimmerman (video here). Screen cap of the aftermath above, via MASN. It sort of looked like Brantly threw an elbow to Harper's chin:
Anyway, a day after Gio Gonzalez delivered an early candidate for quote of the year, Jayson Werth followed up with another candidate. Here's Werth on the collision, via Amanda Comak of the Washington Times:
"I actually didn’t think it was that bad, but the way he reacted, I thought he got shot or something. So I wanted to make sure the little guy was all right." (Jayson Werth, via Washington Times, 4/5/2013)
Davey Johnson said in his postgame presser he wasn't concerned at all because there wasn't any blood.
[Insert your own Harper hitting himself in the head with his bat joke here.]
