The Worst Tweet Ever, or Sympathy for C.C. Sabathia

Tonight I noticed the Tampa Bay Rays scored six runs off in the top of the second off C.C. Sabathia, who, until recently, was the Yankees was most dominant pitcher, and a good part of the reason they won their 27th championship in 2009. So I had a little fun. I tweeted the following:

C.C. see ya, goodbye
C.C. see ya, don't cry
The ringing doubles that take you
Away from us no words can tell how glad it makes us

I thought I was kind of clever. (Well, lame third and fourth lines, but I have a day job.) I thought I really stuck it to the guy. But I'm a piker compared to some Yankees fans.

On Twitter, that selfsame Twitter, I noticed C.C. was trending and checked out what people were saying. Here's what one Yankees fan was saying:

Yankees fan tweet about C.C. Sabathia

Notice that he's sending that not only to C.C. but to C.C.'s wife, too. If you dig deeper you'll find out he's tweeted 500+ times and has eight followers.

Stay classy, Bronx.
