Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth have both been with the Washington Nationals since 2012, the year widely regarded as the year the Nats made the jump from mediocrity to relevance.
However, that year, Harper was a rookie, and Werth—even at the time— was a grizzled veteran. But four seasons later, the two are now are on more of an equal playing field, both having racked up a considerable amount of time (granted, one more than the other) in the majors.
Now sharing a similar status, the two have been part of each other’s lives a little more, which we saw when Jayson Werth was part of Bryce Harper’s wedding party this past December.
Plus, the two can have fun with each other now, which we can see in this photo the two took together on Nats’ photo day this past Thursday, which is an imitation of the poster art for the infamous 2008 comedy Step Brothers starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.

Don’t see much of a resemblance? Check out the poster for the movie:

We can only hope the Nats use this photo when Bryce Harper inevitably drives in Jayson Werth on a home run. Now if only the Nats had a plaid uniform...
