Spring Training games have yet to begin, but Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper is already ruffling the feathers of a division rival.
Harper expressed his displeasure with the Miami Marlins holding a fire sale this offseason, shipping off seemingly any talent they could amid an ownership change. Marlins Manager Don Mattingly was not happy with the comments.
Per the Miami Herald:
"It's not really his place to comment on us," Mattingly said. "He doesn't really know what goes on over here. He may think he does, but he doesn't know what's going on over here, what the discussions are. He doesn't know our players that we know.
"Take care of your business and we'll take care of ours."
Mattingly served as Dodgers manager from 2011-15 before mutually agreeing to part ways with the organization. He has been with the Marlins since the 2016 season.
