Randal Grichuk slams Tim Anderson, then retreats
Yesterday’s unwritten rules display between the Royals and the White Sox was just as tiresome as all of the other ones have become. A batter does something exuberant, the pitcher gets his Jockeys in a bunch over it and throws at him, benches clear, the pitcher later lies about his intentions, and then all of the armchair badasses decide to talk about decorum and whatnot.
Among yesterday’s armchair badasses was a current big league player, Randal Grichuk, who tweeted this just after Tim Anderson got thrown at in the Royals game:
Guys are getting a little excessive on pimping HRs, on meaningless HRs too. Act like you have done it before, one time.— Randal Grichuk (@RGrich15) April 17, 2019
Later, the guy he was clearly talking about -- Anderson -- replied to Grichuk:
In response, Grichuk acted like he’d never been in an internet argument before, not even one time:
Guy, are you really responding to my tweet... SMH. It wasn’t intended for anyone specific but clearly you responding shows you’re guilty of something 💯— Randal Grichuk (@RGrich15) April 18, 2019
“Yeah, I was talking to, um, that OTHER GUY who was doing what I don’t like. Not you, who moments before I tweeted that was involved in a fracas about pimping home runs.”
Everyone’s a badass until you call them out on it. Then they run for cover.
