While Capitals enforcer Tom Wilson is a big fan of his hometown Toronto Blue Jays, he also supports the Nationals. And Monday, after seeing Bryce Harper charge the mound and fight Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland, Wilson could not contain his excitement.

On his Twitter account, Wilson complimented Harper after the Nats outfielder landed a punch.

However, instead of five minutes in the sin bin (AKA the Wilson Box), Harper will be suspended. Tuesday evening, the MLB handed down their ruling. Harper will sit four games while Strickland, who hurled a 98 MPH fastball at Harper’s gluteus maximus, will sit six.
Maybe during Harper’s time off he can perfect his violent helmet toss, hang out with Katie Ledecky, or play some hockey.
