Seattle’s Worst Sports Columnist opens his large overzealous pie hole again. Steve Kelly is a glorified crybaby whose opinions are flaunted upon the pages of Seattle’s largest newspaper. I have read this scumbag’s column for a while now and not once have I come away thinking you know what Steve makes a good point here. He uses the smallest of incidents to create drama and publicity for his articles. In his most recent article "M's better off without selfish Franklin" Kelly blasts Ryan Franklin for being Selfish and an embarrassment to the team.
First off Kelly, you complete waste of space, get your facts right. Franklin did not go after an argument with Brian Price. He came into the dug out pissed off BP told him to cool down in the back so Franky left to let off steam. When BP said that was enough that’s when the argument ensued. In no way did Franklin chase down BP as you insinuated in your article.
You go on to say that Franklin is a crybaby about getting no run support. What the hell man!!! He hasn’t gotten any run support for the better part of two years including a year were he was in the top 5 in ERA in the entire league. His ERA this year is unimportant when you give up 2 runs and are pretty much guaranteed a loss. Let the man finally say something about this. He has been quiet this whole time until recently. Let the man say something.
I feel strongly that you, Steve, are out of line here. It’s a frustrating time for all Mariners and to let of some steam is expected. BP can handle himself, Franky can handle himself. They both don’t need you to call them out or ask management for a release. I know I am not the only Mariner fan that doesn’t think too highly of your work. Stick to WNBA basketball, maybe they can teach you some solid fundamentals and perhaps some respect for someone who needs support right now, not to be ridden out of town.

PILE OF CRAP
While I believe Franky's time here to be over I in no way have any harsh feelings for the guy. He is a competator and a horse. 3 years he had filling the 5th man whole and he did it admirably. I wish him the very best and hope he finds a home somewhere in thE future as I find it hard to believe managment will bring him back. Cheers franky and don't listen to a bum like Steve "I think I am god and always right" Kelly.
