Nationals/Phillies join protest, cancel Thursday’s game

August 27th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Phillies players have voted against playing their scheduled game versus the Nationals tonight, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports (via Twitter). ESPN’s Jeff Passan tweets that the Rangers/Athletics game will also be postponed tonight. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle tweeted shortly prior that the A’s were giving strong consideration to opting not to play. Passan tweeted earlier that Red Sox players were also considering a decision not to play against the Blue Jays.

Today’s decisions follow several clubs who declined to play yesterday in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In total, three MLB games — Brewers/Reds, Mariners/Padres and Dodgers/Giants were postponed yesterday

    So they pay these babies millions and they refuse to play a kids game. Soo overpayed and spoiled. I bet if you fine them or take their salaries they’ll play!!!

    Yep but those overpaid assholes won’t say a word about the father and daughter killed by a black man because of a fender bender yesterday will they?

    My point about those on a steady diet of right wing commentary seems to be proving itself

      > Why? Because people are tired of the whining from overpaid athletes who mostly do nothing to make the world a better place? Throwing a few bucks out of their hefty salaries to get that tax break doesn’t mean shit to me. Some, not most, do care. And they are usually the ones who remain silent. Walking off a field in protest does nothing but prove how stupid they are. If you want change stop talking and act on it. Actions speak louder than words.
