MLB Playoffs: Orlando Arcia is currently on the hot seat as the Atlanta Braves shortstop made comments regarding Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper’s base running mistake to end game two of the National League Divisional series. Per a report from Jake Mintz of Fox Sports Orlando Arcia was caught mocking Bryce Harper in the clubhouse and said, “ha-ha atta-boy Harper”.

Atlanta is now one game away from being eliminated from the MLB playoffs.
