"If you're the Nationals, and those fans have been grinding away with their support,'' says Kansas City Royals veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur, "don't you want to make the playoffs? Guys like (Ryan) Zimmerman who have been there a long time, how can you say it's fair?"
"For me, you win as many damn games as you can, whenever you can. If that's Stephen Strasburg throwing 200 innings, so what? Cole Hamels pitched 262 innings (at 25, in 2008) the year the Phillies won the World Series.
"You're telling Strasburg that once you get to 180 innings, go ahead and enjoy October from the bench? Just shoot me."
Now might not be the best time to point out that the Royals are 46-63 and will likely miss the postseason for the 27th consecutive season.
There are other "great" "opinions" in this piece that are worth your time just for their sheer laughability.
