Don Cherry has never been one to keep his opinions to himself, and he continued his summer of baseball analysis with a take on the Bryce Harper-Jonathan Papelbon dispute.

In a nine-tweet rant, Cherry defended Papelbon against the guy who makes "10 zillion dollars a year" (Harper is actually making $2.5 million US, below league average). He just wishes Papelbon "waited for him in the tunnel and choked him there" instead of the dugout.
