    So he sent a DM out as tweets. Big deal.

    Even special persons are capable of doing very bad things ...

    Ooof, that must've been a tough tweet for Chad to write.

    Though that's a shitty tweet for Gammons to write.

    And the whole thread began because Gammons felt compelled to defend Steve Lyons from an anonymous twitter account questioning why he's on NESN. Gammo not really having a great day.

    And weirdly enough, this didn't even start with a discussion of Lyons' own history with abuse allegations.

    I wonder if that's what Gammons thought that he (Gammons) was tweeting about (Lyons's stuff); and not about the Oregon State guy.

    Who are Lyons' teammates in that scenario? TC and Wake?

    Was gonna say ...

    Part of the problem is that Peter Gammons is, by all accounts, a kind, decent person who has a long track record of wanting to believe the best about people.

    My guess is that killing one of his heroes for defending a pedophile on Twitter is not how @ChadFinn was hoping to start his day.

    Gammo's mind has gone the way of Toe Nash.

    What the hell is Gammons talking about anyway? The Redskins were owned/moved to DC by George Preston Marshall, who signed a black player even later than Tom Yawkey (and only when the US Government threatened to cancel his lease to play in DC (now RFK) Stadium). "I'll sign a Negro when the Globetrotters sign a white player" (or something to that effect).

    As for the first part, I'm guessing Gammons had yet another brain fart and typed "Dustin Pedroia 1977" when he was thinking "Butch Hobson 1977" -- Bregman and 1977 Hobson are absolutely comparable.

    As for the second part, who the hell knows?

    It hasn't been a good week on the old Twitter box for Gammons or Bill James.
