Red Sox Criticize Teammates’ Tweets


Have you ever tweeted something you regretted? Are you always wondering whether your friends are laughing at your social media posts behind your back?

You're not alone. The Red Sox released a video of players reading some of their teammates' more questionable tweets.

"This is a tweet from Blake Swihart: 'Wakeing up everyday like your on a mission,'" said reliever Craig Breslow, a Yale graduate. "'Wakeing' spelled 'W-A-K-E-I-N-G,' which is not a word, as far as I know. 'Like your on a mission,' 'Y-O-U-R,' not 'Y-O-U-apostrophe-R-E.'"

Swihart, widely considered the top catching prospect in baseball, got in on the fun, reading a tweet by one of the team's veteran leaders.

"This is from Dustin Pedroia: 'T minus 7 minutes for town hall meetings, howls, squatchy areas and bobo acting like a complete psycho. Tonight is the night we see him!'" said Swihart.

Righty Brandon Workman was one of several players to analyze a tweet by starter Joe Kelly.


"Not sure where you were going with that, Joe," said Workman.

"It's from a song," explained D'Angelo Ortiz, the 10-year-old son of David Ortiz, explained. "So that doesn't really make any sense."

One of the Sox' new acquistions, starting pitcher Wade Miley, read a tweet by first baseman Mike Napoli.

"I don't really get it," said Miley.

Pedroia took a look at one of his own tweets.


"Self-explanatory!" he defended it.

Starter Clay Buchholz disagreed.

"Don't even know what he's talking about," he said. "But that's why I don't have Twitter."
