Last night’s game between the Nationals and Rays came and went without incident or any carryover from pine tar gate. Stephen Strasburg, the team’s ace played stopper again and the Nationals snapped a four game losing streak winning 3-2 against the Rays. Even with the pine tar incident and war of words slowly fading from memory, it seem like it’s getting out of hand now. And about Twitter. Or Tweeter, if you’re Davey Johnson.
“I don’t want to get in a shouting match with Joe. I looked him up on the Internet and found out he has a Tweeter, so he can get to more people than me,” Johnson told the media.
While Davey took a route to lay relatively low and end the verbal war, Maddon had his own ideas about Twitter. Or Tweeter. Now which one is it, now?
“Most men have Tweeters. I would never use my Tweeter to an unfair advantage,” Maddon refuted.
Um, well take that as you will.
The only thing that could have made Davey Johnson’s ‘Tweeter” media session better is if he found a way to work in ‘that’s a clown question, bro.’ But the Nationals still have to play the Rays one last time tonight.
Check out the compilation video from CSNWashington. And after tonight, the Nationals won’t have to see the Rays for a very long time, hopefully. (Unless it’s in the postseason.)
Game time is 7:05 at Nationals Park.
