Baseball is again and nothing can mood the thrill — aside from presumably the game’s most Online assholes getting indignant on Twitter. Here is a drama with a three-man solid: well-known racist Curt Schilling, sex-trafficking advocate Aubrey Huff and Trevor Bauer, a seemingly urbane analytics-apostle who’s really merely the Reddit to Schilling’s and Huff’s 4Chan.
The Twitter beef kicked off when Huff, a former first baseman/proper fielder who’s like if Stephen Miller grew as much as be massive and robust, took offense to Bauer’s tweets concerning the labor dispute between the homeowners and the gamers. Bauer—kindly taking trip of his busy schedule of climate change denial, bigotry and harrassing college-aged women—smugly engaged with Huff. From right here, the feud devolved right into a debate on the deserves of superior stats, with Bauer bragging that he has a better WAR than Huff and Huff responding that baseball has been ruined by nerds and low-testerone cucks like Bauer; fellas, is it gay to know math? And, then failed online game developer Curt Schilling parachuted in, able to defend Huff’s honor, earlier than making a grammatical mistake, being racist and deleting his Twitter.
The most inexplicable a part of this complete fiasco is that each one three males in all probability really feel actually good about themselves now. Bauer acquired the prospect to fake that he’s a genius for taking a look at numbers, by no means thoughts that he has the psychological acuity of a Jordan Peterson Youtube feedback part and got pulled in the first inning of an ALCS game because he cut his finger while playing with a drone; Huff acquired to advance his model of being all purple and mad on the web, exhibiting why he’s been banned from San Francisco Giant alumni events; Schilling stays undefeated at being the fucking worst.
