Leaving on a midnight plane to Scranton

From Franchise Tax by Jeff Passan:

"Francisco Liriano is not the type of player with whom a team should mess around, and he certainly is not the type of player on whom to thrust a maybe/we’ll-see/let’s-play-it-by-ear scenario.

And all of this is confusing, too, because baseball prides itself on a few simple rules. You show up on time. You respect the game. And you do not put a franchise pitcher on a commercial jet headed to Pennsylvania in the middle of a pennant race because he might throw 50 pitches to live minor-league batters."

I am with you. They are caught up in pennant fever and hoping for the best.......
