And I hate to keep agreeing with Harper, but he was right on point with what he said after the game on Monday. Strickland received a six-game suspension and an undisclosed fine.
Strickland apparently plunked Harper for hitting two home runs during the 2014 NLDS, a series in which the Giants beat the Nationals.
"If you got something wrong with a guy, go see him", Jake Arrieta said.
When the suspensions are carried out, the two players will not be paid for the games that they miss.

Washington RHP Max Scherzer (5-3, 2.77 ERA) starts the series finale Wednesday against RHP Matt Cain (3-3, 4.45) in a rematch of Game 4 of the 2012 World Series when Scherzer was with Detroit.
Its just insane that it even happened yesterday after three years to do that, Harper said.
"I'm not thrilled about (the suspension), but it's their call."
When Strickland didn't back down, Harper flung his helmet at him - missing badly - and charged the mound.
"You never want to get suspended or anything like that, " Harper said. Harper should have hit him between the eyes with his helmet or bat.
-- Orlando Calixte hit a single up the middle in the first, getting his first big league hit.
Baker did, however, like that the Nationals as a team responded with the win, knocking Giants' starter Jeff Samardzija out after just four innings in which the right-hander got up to 100 pitches.
In my opinion Strickland is a cancer for this team. Goodness knows in my 12-year college umpiring career I was at three games where punches were actually thrown. Heck, I'm surprised there wasn't even more damage.
