If a manager has a rule in place that everybody runs groundouts out, if a player doesn't do it, the manager has every right to discipline him no matter if he's a superstar or the 25th man. If Harper had jogged down to 1st, I doubt he would have been taken out of the game. I don't think he had to bust his butt, just complete the play. The irony of this is that Harper has been known for playing all out even to the point of overdoing it. I think what Williams did was preferable to the alternative I suggested earlier of yelling at him in front of everyone. That option may satisfy some fans but I think it makes everyone look bad. If there are rules then they should be followed. You can debate on whether it's a dumb rule but it is a rule. If you have guys like Dick Allen on your team you might not want to have those kind of rules. Players like that may function better without rules.
