Bryce Harper was shockingly ejected in Friday's MLB game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies. After what looked like a calm conversation, the umpire threw out the star outfielder. Now, we finally have more details about what was said during the exchange.

The Phillies star just couldn't believe his conversation attempt with the umpire led to an ejection. During an interview in the locker room, Harper explained what he said. From the sounds of it, Harper didn't deserve to be ejected from the game.

It truly feels like umpires have been a bit more sensitive than usual these last few years. Nearly every game there is some kind of horrific call or decision to eject someone from the game. It's especially odd to see an umpire throw out someone like Bryce Harper so easily after it appeared Harper was remaining calm. If anything, the Phillies star was trying to find some information to better prepare for the umpire's strike zone for his second at-bat.

Additionally, it may have been a costly ejection for the Phillies and Bryce Harper. Philadelphia lost Friday's game 2-3. There's a possibility that Harper's presence could have produced another run or two for his team. But we'll never know thanks to the wild ejection call.

The Phillies have a chance to get back in the win column against the Rockies on Saturday. Philadelphia has been red hot so far this season and we should expect them to continue playing at a high level.

Phillies' World Series chances

The Phillies own the best record in baseball right now and look like a true World Series contender. They've been hot at the plate and the pitching rotation has been dominant, for the most part. As long as they keep playing like this we should see Philadelphia in the playoffs once again.

After losing in the playoffs to the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Phillies are out for vengeance. But they'll have their hands full as the season progresses, as the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, and Milwaukee Brewers look fantastic right now. But Philadelphia can lean on their star players who have been hot throughout the entire season. Teams like the Braves have had some bad luck with either injuries or cold streaks.

With that said, the Phillies will aim to tie up the series against the Rockies on Saturday, May 25. Hopefully, there are no hiccups with the umpires and both teams can play a clean game. This is a series Philadelphia should win considering Colorado is one of the worst teams in the league right now. With that said, look for Bryce Harper to make up for missing out on most of Friday's game. He could be in for a big game on Saturday.
