Chase Hughes of has the story:

During the first inning of the Nationals and Giants game on Tuesday night, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area’s broadcast caught a tense moment between Gio Gonzalez and Jayson Werth in the Washington dugout.

Werth walked past Gonzalez and said something that provoked Gio to turn around and start yelling back at the outfielder, causing pitching coach Steve McCatty to step in the pitcher’s way. Werth kept walking and appeared to take a seat in the corner of the dugout after the exchange.

Gonzalez was slow to cover first base on what could have been an inning-ending double play in the top of the first inning. Here’s a GIF of the confrontation between Gio and Jayson from Carmen Kiew on Twitter:


In closely-related news, the Nats are 14 games back of the Braves in the National League East standings.

    Ha ha ha. Love it

    Nats, Blue Jays, Angels…all offseason winners.

      The Nats were offseason winners?

      • thomas844 - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:28 PM

        According to ESPN and MLB Network back in March, the Nationals were basically crowned the 2013 World Series champs.

      Who did the Nats sign in the offseason? They traded away Morse. What else did they do?

      • madhatternalice - Aug 13, 2013 at 9:41 PM

        Haren, Span, LaRoche, Soriano.

      Jays are easily the biggest losers this past off season, too bad craig wont ever own up to it

  3. barkleyblows - Aug 13, 2013 at 8:27 PM

    I think it’s safe to say Gio would get curb stomped.

  4. dkphilly1122 - Aug 13, 2013 at 8:33 PM

    Gio would get the Caveman style whooping!!

  5. nsauser - Aug 13, 2013 at 8:36 PM

    Gio better get back on the Biogenesis stuff if he’s going to throw with Werth.

  6. dondada10 - Aug 13, 2013 at 8:53 PM

    It looked like Kevin Nash was walking away from an unmasked Rey Mysterio.

    • Kevin Gillman - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:46 PM

      It could have been worse though, it could have looked like Scott Hall with a taser gun.

    After that, Gio didn’t get a bunt down, then Werth struck out with the bases loaded. Plenty of yuck to go around. It’s raining now–maybe they are in the clubhouse arm-wrestling…

    • unclemosesgreen - Aug 14, 2013 at 5:40 AM

      You’re referring to physical mistakes however, Werth was drily alerting his pincushion-butt pinhead teammate that it’s his responsibility to hustle and be mentally alert out there.

    What the hell is up with this gossip girl stuff?

    • natslady - Aug 13, 2013 at 9:24 PM

      Good point. Apparently, HBT is watching Nats/Giants… Guess there’s nothing better on… 😉

  9. xpensivewinos - Aug 13, 2013 at 9:21 PM

    But gee whiz fellas, what happened to all that “Natitude” and stuff??????

    • Kevin Gillman - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:51 PM

      I think it’s the common case of they got too big for their own good. They started to believe their own hype, and a young team that made the playoffs for the first time ever should not think like that. Stay hungry.

  10. steelers88 - Aug 13, 2013 at 9:22 PM

    They traded for Denard Span, they signed Dan Haren and they signed Rafael Soriano.

      I just realized that the tiggers are visting the Mets in 10 days. Could be Scherzer vs. Harvey.

      • historiophiliac - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:50 PM

        OMG!!! It could be orgasmic for both of us!

      • dondada10 - Aug 14, 2013 at 12:02 AM

        I must warn you: I squirt.

    Meanwhile Danny Espinosa is still saying the Nats are better than Braves.

    • bobulated - Aug 13, 2013 at 11:50 PM

      And saying it from Syracuse.

    The caveman just said that it was Gio’s fault that Harper has the flu.

  14. sportfandc - Aug 14, 2013 at 12:27 AM

    I like it. Werth has been carrying the team offensively since July1, so he might as well do the managing, too. Peace and love hasn’t been cutting it. Eat face!

  15. mgavin78 - Aug 14, 2013 at 7:36 AM

    Werth is having roid rage. Man baseball is so dirty.

    • paperlions - Aug 14, 2013 at 7:53 AM

      Yeah, no one in the history of the world ever argued, had disagreements, physical altercations, or wars until steroids were invented. Freaking steroids! Causing all the worlds problems.

      • voteforno6 - Aug 14, 2013 at 9:09 AM

        I don’t know if you can attribute all of the world’s problems to steroids…actually, one could make a reasonable argument that cocaine caused the financial meltdown.

      • Gamera the Brave - Aug 14, 2013 at 11:15 AM

        Genghis Khan was a known ‘roider.
        Amazing what you can accomplish with some steroid and a horse…

        And Hammurabi would NEVER have finished his Code of Laws without greenies…

  16. wpjohnson - Aug 14, 2013 at 7:37 AM

    From all indications, Werth is not a likeable individual. It is easy to root against him.

    • voteforno6 - Aug 14, 2013 at 9:17 AM

      He does have some randomly funny moments, though, like when he tried to intervene in the President’s race a couple of years ago.

    Damn Obamacare !

    Is that one or two wheels flying off the bus now?
