Jonathan Papelbon and Bryce Harper got into scuffle in the Nationals dugout on Sunday when Papelbon took exception to Harper not running to first harder on a fly out.

It seems the Nationals fans have picked a side in the intra-squad quarrel, with many of them using Twitter to let the team know they are willing to donate their own money to charity if the team cuts Papelbon.

@NLBeastNats seems to have started the trend and is retweeting others who have offered to support a charity if Washington rids itself of its recently acquired closer, with over $5,500 being pledged so far.

Papelbon is under contract for $11 million for the 2016 season.
