Bryce Harper has done his level best to avoid controversy during his rookie season with the Nationals, but cyclonic Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen dragged him into one Sunday afternoon during the Nationals' 4-0 victory over Miami. Guillen charged Harper with using too much pine tar on his bat, spewed a torrent of profanity at Harper during his at-bat in the fourth inning and afterward called Harper's actions "unprofessional." Guillen did not specify what caused his ire, but said it had "something" to do with how Harper pointed his bat at him before his second at-bat.
