Sports fans and keyboard warriors have always loved giving their most heated and heartfelt takes about their teams on Twitter. Most of the time they go unheard or unnoticed outside of their minimal following, other times it blows up in their face. Since pro teams have upped their social media game in the past few years, some have developed pretty witty accounts. The Cubs are one of these teams, unfortunately for young Kevin here. Kevin was not a fan of Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr. He figured it would be a good idea to remind his favorite team about it. I’m sure in Kevin’s mind the Cubs were going to see this tweet and head right down to Theo’s office and put this plan into action! Let’s see how it unfolded in real life. First the initial (now deleted) tweet…

Turns out Carl Edwards Jr. is having himself quite the solid year. Although he did give up three runs against the White Sox last night, the Cubs still decided to go to the numbers, cause men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. The Cubs even went as far as the Nostradamus the situation by predicting the usual go-to move of the called out keyboard warrior, the deleted tweet.
Carl Edwards Jr. went 14 straight outings without allowing a run and has only allowed runs in two outings this season.
We look forward to the deletion of your tweet. https://t.co/FvxfKCDwh5

Boy, that’s a pretty solid run for a relief pitcher. That’s certainly not a relief pitcher that I would want being sent down. That comeback hurts. You can’t even argue with it. Remember what I said about numbers not lying? Yeah, so that’s gonna be a tough recovery here. Let’s check in on Kevin…
Can I get a SHEEESH? He skipped the whole tweet deleting phase and was forced to delete his entire account from the Twittersphere. That’s like when Leo takes the old Queludes with the delayed effect in Wolf of Wall Street and skips every other phase goes straight into the cerebral palsy mode. Although I cant say the outpouring of love from his fellow fans didn’t nudge him off the ledge, then again, it probably did. Ok, It did. Check out a small sample size below…
You banished him from the face of the Earth. 😮 pic.twitter.com/OBRFYJ1BNI
