A shitty website rejected my useful comment

http://phillysportsnut.com/so-much-to-envy-about-nationals/

3rd paragraph:
The saying is “To the victor goes the spoils,” not “The victor goes the spoils.”
The following sentence doesn’t make any sense: “The Nationals have every right to mock the Phillies after Phillies fans were laughing at them for proclaiming about the playoffs this year.”

4th paragraph:
Awkward sentence: “They were one team that did not admire a team that was a World Series contender.”

5th paragraph:
"Their bullpen has been great." How? "Great" is a subjective word. Baseball is full of stats. Use them.

6th paragraph:
You say: “The Nationals hit well, too. Unlike the Phillies, they know how to hit well with runners in scoring position.”
If you had researched this, you would have found that both teams are hitting .255 with runners in scoring position this year, so your point is bullshit. The internet is amazing and shit, here’s the link where I found it:
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/stats/byteam?cat=Situational&cut_type=39&sort=722&conference=MLB&year=season_2012
Baseball Reference also has lots of stats. People use them to prove points (see 5th paragraph)

7th paragraph:
Another awkward sentence: “This is a team that is primed to win the World Series if they would let Stephen Strasburg pitch in the playoffs.”

"They want to protect their investment after watching Mark Prior break down for pitching so many innings in 2003." Another terribly worded sentence, and furthermore, the placement of the sentence within the paragraph and wording of the sentence make it seem like Mark Prior pitched for the Expos/Nationals organization. Which he did not.

I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t read this clusterfuck of an article any more. I’m not hating on you for writing for a blog or your opinions, I’m merely complaining about your spelling, awkward sentences, and terrible grammar, something that would be solved by proofreading your writing before publishing it.

Dear Lord! There is a heavy-set man in an Antonio Freeman Eagles jersey and pajama pants sitting here on the EL with me eating a hoagie and coughing up a lung.

*This guy is such a Philadelphia stereotype it makes my brain feel like it’s bleeding.

Still love this video from Chiddy Bang. Minus the Rangers hat.

The DeSean video is essentially him just trying to sell his jersey.

Remember when DeSean Jackson did one of these awhile back? Jrue Holiday steps into the role this time around, and this one may be even funnier.
