Earlier this week tales emerged how the Marlins have been “outraged” that the Red Sox would dare ship a lineup full of minor league prospects to a Grapefruit League recreation. The only two players within the Boston lineup that day with any big league at bats had been Jackie Bradley Jr. and Ryan Lavarnway. The Marlins were mad, calling it a “gross violation” and contemplated filing a criticism with the MLB house office. Sox GM Ben Cherington apologized and it seemed like the “controversy” was over.
Seems Red Sox proprietor John Henry has his personal thoughts on the situation and tweeted as much Saturday afternoon, delivering a first round TKO to the Marlins group, albeit without naming them instantly.
Obviously Henry has no love misplaced for the Marlins — a staff he previously owned before selling it to Jeffrey Loria in 2002.
I’m unsure what the Marlins should feel the need to apologize for. Giancarlo Stanton is a budding star and the rest of the beginning lineup is effectively … ummm … eight other players, including former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
This is Auburn’s Dee Ford, not to be confused with England’s Dee Ford.
“It went really mad this weekend, ” Ford told the War Eagle Reader. “But it had gone a bit crazy a couple of weeks back when Dee himself tweeted his (Twitter) address wrong so I was already getting odd followers for him and everyone telling me what a great singer I was and how I play great piano. The stupid thing is, when I told them I wasn’t a singer they didn’t believe me… I sing as good as I play American Football. ”
Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs accidentally included the English Ford’s handle in a tweet congratulating Auburn Ford for his Senior Bowl MVP award as well. Jacobs then apologized and asked for English Ford’s address so he could send her some Auburn gear and welcome her to the family.
And it seems that while English Ford knows next to nothing about college football, she’s a new Auburn fan. Just check out this photo she sent to War Eagle Reader.
I guess that after losing out on another national championship this season the Tigers are looking to go international instead.

Oct 18, 2013; Houston, TX, USA; Diego Sanchez in the course of the weigh-in for UFC 166 at Toyota Middle. Obligatory Credit score: Andrew Richardson-USA AT PRESENT Sports activities
Over the past month, Conor McGregor and Diego Sanchez have cultivated a rivalry that is getting the MMA neighborhood hyped for a possible battle. At the moment, the drama continued with yet one more set of tweets between the two. In early November, the 2 started feuding with theses set of tweets. McGregor made enjoyable of Diego’s Mexican heritage and stated that he would end his profession if they fought. Diego took the high highway, merely stating that Conor has no class in any respect.
Later in the month, McGregor and Sanchez exchanged on Twitter again. This time throughout Sanchez’s campaign for his subsequent battle, a fan recommended Conor as his subsequent opponent. Sanchez mentioned that McGregor has to climb the ladder earlier than he may step within the cage against him. This led to extra back and forth from both males.
Right now, the duo gave us our third serving of their Twitter warfare with these tweets:

@DiegoSanchezUFC Take a look at them titties and belly rolls. You fats waste of area. Little scrawny legs on you. I’d cease you inside 2 minutes — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) December 18, 2013
@TheNotoriousMMA all you might be is insult after insult your oblivious to ur foolishness, im over it! in poor health pray for you #powerofForgiveness
— Diego Sanchez UFC (@DiegoSanchezUFC) December 18, 2013
Somebody then requested why the 2 wouldn’t fight already, to which Sanchez responded:
@elias_ruest@TheNotoriousMMA I nonetheless hope to get within the cage with him, simply not going to go back n forth with a oblivious younger little one.

Clearly Conor McGregor is attempting to maintain his identify relevant as he nurses his damage, however is he hurting or helping his image? He seems to be a quick rising star, and the hype and rivalry between the 2 males could promote a pay per view. This might very well be a matchup made when Conor returns from harm in 2014.
Dec 15, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) walks off the sector as photographers capture pictures after the sport against the Inexperienced Bay Packers at AT
Nicely, Tony Romo might or may not be the rationale his workforce loses every game, however he certain does have a status. His critics (and everybody else) say that he can’t win an enormous game, and when it issues most, he will throw it to the opposite team. On Sunday night time in opposition to the Packers, he did simply that, and the Cowboys went dwelling without a win.
The Atlanta Hawks twitter account is among the finest in all of skilled sports. Earlier this season, they caught it to Darren Rovell, and now, they did a bit of trolling:
They have a degree, as Al Horford has come up big in clutch moments for Atlanta this season. On November twenty ninth, he burned the Mavericks with this shot:
Then, on Friday, the clutch gods were with Horford once more, as he beat the Wizards on the buzzer:
I used to be within the building overlaying the sport on Friday, and the shot was good, however his efficiency was better. Al Horford has performed like an all-star this season, and the Hawks currently sit third within the Jap Conference. Poor Tony Romo can’t seem to get any assist–not even from his personal coach.

UFC Featherweight, Conor McGregor, and UFC Light-weight, Diego Sanchez, have been feuding over twitter this month. In the first set of tweets, McGregor made fun of Diego’s Mexican heritage and mentioned that he would finish his career if they fought. Diego took the high street, simply stating that Conor has no class at all.
Yesterday, Diego took to twitter in hopes of getting his subsequent battle:
After somebody asked Diego why not Conor McGregor instead, Diego had this to say:
That tweet unleashed another barrage from McGregor:
Diego then called out McGregor:
McGregor was quick to reply that he is willing to struggle, however on his personal terms:
Diego wouldn’t again down from Conor:
Conor, never one to mince words, finished off the trade with this tweet:
That is the second time in a span of a few weeks that these two have exchanged phrases on Twitter. Conor has fought each his UFC fights at Featherweight, but has previously fought at Lightweight before. With all the hype surrounding this battle, it’s certainly plausible that the UFC would ebook it. I, nevertheless, discover it unlikely considering that Diego needs to get again in the cage quicker than Conor will likely be healthy to do so.
Regardless if they ever struggle, the 2 are definitely entertaining on Twitter. May this be the start of a new rivalry?

Tennessee Titans large receiver Kenny Britt tweeted several times on Tuesday, but this one clearly was the one which caught the most attention:
Advanced note to Titans public relations: The hacked-Twitter-account defense possible won’t work here.
Britt would not appear too completely happy with his current crew and would not appear too more likely to return subsequent season. He both might stroll as a free agent in 2014, or perhaps be traded in the interim.
But the Titans aren’t thrilled with Britt, either. They benched him for elements of the Titans’ 30-24 extra time loss on Sunday to the Texans, reportedly for penalties, mental mistakes and poorly run routes. Britt solely has been focused 11 occasions in two video games and has a mere five catches for forty three yards. Compared, he has dedicated three penalties.
“That’s two weeks in a row he’s had a holding name, so it was more to refocus him,” Titans head coach Mike Munchak mentioned of the benching. “It cost us a ten-yard penalty on a ten-yard achieve, and we won’t have that.”
Cook left through free agency and cashed in with the Rams. However Britt possible should repair his picture a bit earlier than he is rewarded with the identical kind of payday.

But Harvin provided his 140,000-plus followers on Twitter a tantilizing treat: He says he’s getting closer to getting back to the sector.
This is way from an official phrase, and players are generally notoriously overoptimistic in terms of their very own accidents. However this must be seen as nice news for each Harvin and the Seahawks, who cannot wait to open up the probabilities of his inclusion into the offense.
Harvin was placed on the PUP checklist, which means that Week 7 is the soonest he may return. The Seahawks journey to Arizona that week, on Oct. 17, for a Thursday night recreation. The Seahawks have not given an official phrase for when Harvin might come again, but the speculated timetable had been later, in November.
Harvin underwent surgical procedure on Aug. 1, and the expected restoration time for related accidents is three to 4 months. So maybe Harvin is kidding himself. But when he is not, the Seahawks may get an early Christmas gift they might not have been expecting so quickly.
One of the world’s hottest golfers and the King of All Media crossed paths on Twitter on Sunday, and it was for probably the most peculiar of causes: unruly fans.
If you watched even one stroke of golf this weekend at the PGA Championship, you got to enjoy the glory that was the gallery of idiots screaming “funny” slogans after every player hit. Here, get pleasure from a range, beginning with a “mashed potato!” for Tiger Woods:
Next, Keegan Bradley, who gets each a “Baba Booey” and a “Go Sawx!”:
And finally, champion Jason Dufner, who will get a “Chewbacca!” to observe his drive:
Funny, proper? Intelligent, proper? Announcers chided the followers all by way of the tournament, and Jim Furyk even stopped after his tee shot on the sixteenth to glare at some followers who yelled as he was hitting.
Ian Poulter, the 17th-ranked golfer on the planet, decided to take to Twitter to vent:
He followed up with a NSFW line: “This baba boo [crap] & mash potato crap shouting wouldn’t occur at Augusta, The Open, nor would it happen at Wimbledon. Tazer the thrushes.” That “baba boo [crap]” caught the attention of Howard Stern, on whose show the “Baba Booey” phrase originated. (It’s the nickname of his producer, Gary Dell’Abate, and fans of the show have shouted it in public for many years. Here’s the most famous, during the O.J. Simpson Bronco chase.) Stern decided to educate Poulter with the proper spelling, to which Poulter had a sometimes snarky reply:
For the report, Poulter has 1.53 million, and Stern has 1.forty seven million.. all of whom are probably going to be yelling “Baba Booey!” at Poulter for so long as he’s on Tour.
Still, bottom line: no matter superstar involvement, the New York gallery at the 2013 PGA Championship was an embarrassment, absolutely the worst ever at a serious. When each single tee shot is accompanied by howls of hear-to-me idiots, it’s time to bust out the whipping sticks. Augusta National has the best thought: you yell “Get within the hole!” there, you lose your proper to ever come to the Masters once more. That is a stable begin.
