Nationals fans offer donations if team cuts Jonathan Papelbon
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.
