I’m talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, YOU DO NOT … wait, what?  You mean it’s just these two guys?  Ah, never mind.

And there’s a part two. It’s much better. They call Philly fans “the lowest form of humanity” and they call Philly itself “a stinking cesspool.”   If I find their address, Philly fans, I’ll let you know:

The Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will not pick up his 2018 club option worth $6.5 million, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Instead, he will be paid $700,000 per his buyout clause.

Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.

From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
