This turned out to be an exciting AS game (or insomuch as an AS game could be exciting) and yet the story of the evening will once again be someone's stupidity on social media coming to the fore. Sports in 2018!

So, Hader probably would have been better off if he had just toiled in relative obscurity as an average pitcher instead of an all star.

How pissed would we be if we won ~110 games and that Diaz meltdown precluded a World Series Game 7 at Fenway? Thank God that idiotic rule was changed.

Tuning in late. How did this Hader twitter stuff come to light? Was it mentioned on broadcast?

Yeah, both Trout and Harper looked mighty perturbed. Its a game. Let them have some fun with it. I'm sure they could say no. I'll bet that at least 27 people who saw Harper changed their minds for the better about him after that..



How do you know he's a Sox fan. Maybe he was visiting an impoverished country in December 1986.
Too soon

No

Either people waiting on this for 6-7 years (doubtful but possible) or they just stalked him after the HR allowed.

Bregman and Springer took the potatoes down to be mashed, so they could make it on over to that MILLION DOLLAR BASH!
Everybody from right now
Go ever there and back
The louder they come
The bigger they crack
Come now, sweet cream
Don't forget to flash
We're all gonna meet
At that million dollar bash
