A.B. Jon Lester took to Twitter yesterday to defend himself and his teammates from angry Boston Red Sox fans. And although many more of the Boston Faithful stepped up to defend the slumping southpaw, Lester certainly had his hands full with some cyber-Sox bullies. Ranging from bath salts accusations to wishing for trades, Lester was bombarded by a whirlwind of negativity.
In one humble Red Sox fans’ opinion, Lester came out on top of the twitter turbulence. From pointing out errors in math to referencing his never quit attitude, Lester was able to keep his cool. It’s strange that Lester responded to the criticism in the first place but his sometimes sarcastic tone at least made the banter enjoyable.
