The Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox, 2-1, last night to move into first place in the American League East. They did so thanks large in part to a terrible call by a human umpire.
So it’s no surprise tensions were running high. It is surprising, however, that things boiled over between the teams’ Twitter accounts.
Oh, sick burns all around. The tweets have since been deleted because god forbid they let baseball be interesting.
It only took 100-plus years and the invention of new technology for the Rays to supplant the Yankees as the BoSox’ biggest rivals.
