TwitterSphere Explodes On Middlebrooks/Ross

The Offending Tweets
Both Will Middlebrooks and Cody Ross made the mistake of stepping on the 'third rail' of Red Sox fandom on Saturday night. Their offense? They made public comments about the Evil Empire that weren't 100% negative. After Raúl Ibañez homered yet again to tie Saturday night's game, both Ross and Middlebrooks sent out tweets that—more than anything—demonstrated amazement at the feat. However, a slew of Red Sox fans excoriated the two on Twitter for hours. While the fan reaction was a tad overdone, both of these guys had better learn that there is no room for any warm and fuzzy thoughts toward the Pinstriped Posers. Ever.
