Is It Time To Lose Baseball's 'Unwritten Rules'?

Baseball has a long list of unwritten rules. Things like, "Run hard to first base," "If someone hits your teammate with a pitch, your pitcher needs to retaliate" and "Don't fight your teammates in public." The Washington Nationals have broken all these rules in under a week.
Nats closer Jonathan Papelbon started off the drama last week by drilling Orioles player Manny Machado after apparently taking too long with his home run trot earlier in the game.
His teammate and N.L. MVP front-runner Bryce Harper told the media he wasn't happy, saying, "I'll probably get drilled tomorrow." (Video via ESPN)
