The Wonderful World of Sean Doolittle
“There's a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country. My wife and I stand for inclusion and acceptance, and we‘ve done work with refugees, people that come from, you know, the ’shithole countries.' ... At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my teammates, I can't do it. I just can't do it.
”People say you should go because it's about respecting the office of the president. And I think over the course of his time in office he's done a lot of things that maybe don't respect the office."
- Sean Doolittle, closer for the World Series-winning Washington Nationals, on turning down an invitation to visit Pres. Trump at The White House on Monday. Good for him. Hell, I might have to go out (or go online) and buy me a Sean Doolittle jersey.
