What kind of world is this that someone digs up a racist tweet from 4 years ago and calls out the only person that has anything close to a public image who liked it? Also, freedom of speech only applies if you agree with it? I dont like the use of that word by anyone, however, the use of words here is what gets criticized rather than someone being angry over the killing of police officers?
Im pretty sure I crossed the line of political discussion, but some times I cant just help myself. Remove if necessary.
I wouldn't be surprised if he saw the twat before his that said something about 'trucks ain't clean' or he meant to like the response to the original twat from the chick Marissa.
Either way, whatever. I have enough chit going on in my life that this is all garbage. Anyone who spends their time on Twatter is just wasting it.
I always thought of "tool" more as a prospect's potential regardless of what he does with the tool in the majors, and I am inclined to look more at OBP/OPS than AVG. Still you are right, he was probably more plus than elite as a prospect.
As to how to do this, it's very simple to do as someone pointed out.
But I think eviscerating these guys for stuff they did on the internet when they were kids is going too far. Look at what happened to Josh Hader for quoting rap song lyrics. I employed his best friend and met Josh a few times. His best friend is a person of color. No racist vibes ever came from Hader, yet he gets hung out to dry during the All-Star game by someone reporting tweets he made back in high school.
I don't know about you guys, but since then, I've grown as a person. Hell, I've grown as a person since Covid-19 hit. My opinions on the things going on in our country right now have changed. It's a bit unfair to pull those things into the light and cause someone to lose their job.
If it happened a month or two ago? Fair game. But not four-plus years.
