Aubrey Huff, Seth McClung feuding on Twitter

Seth McClung pitched for six seasons for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the Milwaukee Brewers. His time in Tampa Bay overlapped with Aubrey Huff’s time with the Devil Rays for several seasons, making them teammates.

It would seem, however, that they did not get along too well. They certainly aren’t getting along very well now if their interaction on Twitter over the past couple of days is any indication.

Yesterday a fan asked McClung who was “the biggest turd” with whom he played. McClung did not hesitate to answer

For those of you who want a reminder as for why most respectable people steer far clear of Twitter….

Marlins apologize for Steve Irwin death tweet: ‘This was definitely a miss’

The Miami Marlins got in a back-and-forth Twitter conversation with the Tampa Bay Rays following their series Sunday, and it eventually led to the Marlins’ social team going all-out.

The tweet gained plenty of attention (mostly praise), but on Monday, the Marlins apologized.

“This was a regrettable exchange by our otherwise creative social media team. Unfortunately, in this medium, sometimes we swing and miss, and this was definitely a miss,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

The spokesperson added: “The matter has been addressed internally.”

How low can Derek Jeter go?
