We’ve reached that point in the offseason where fans start to desperately figure out ways to convince players to either come to the team they root for or continue playing for said team.
You hear it all the time from players: They’re fans, too.
Case in point: Kike Hernandez dressed up as Zack Greinke to convince the latter to remain a Los Angeles Dodger. I repeat: Kike Hernandez dressed up as Zack Greinke to convince the latter to remain a Los Angeles Dodger.
Dear Zack, I have no money to offer you but this is my pitch! PLEASEEEEE stay! ?? #21 pic.twitter.com/BwEm0MAghC

You’d have to think watching guys like Greinke pitch is just as — if not more — exciting for teammates as it is for us, the fans. They’ve obviously studied the game intensively to get where they are and can put a great player’s abilities into proper perspective.
If this does work, and Greinke stays, give Kike a raise. Give him whatever he wants. Make him the mayor. I can start the movement here: #KikeForMayor.
