Tweet of the Week

The trigger for this discussion was seeing that both Hudson and former team-mate David Hernandez had both replied to Twitter trolls:

You'll notice the absences of the Tweets they were quoting. For what was particularly amusing was that both of the trolls reacted in the same way to having their messages retweeted by the targets - they deleted their accounts entirely. C'mon, people. If you're going to talk shit at someone, stay for the rest of the conversation! It is literally the least you can do.

Honorable mentions

Trevor Bauer, still being himself.

But I am pleased to report a happy ending to this saga.

Other honorably honorable mentions.

Your reminder that there is other stuff, which actually matters.
