Bryan Petersen emulates Logan Morrison in all of the wrong ways

29 Comments

The Marlins have a second outfielder whose tweets they may need to worry about.

Bryan Petersen, a 25-year-old outfielder with a shot of making the team as a bench player this spring, tweeted the following this evening:

For those of u who think u have to hit .330 with 30 and 100 to have a life off the field, suck it. It’s not my fault u hate ur 9 to 5.

The sentiment isn’t so wrong. The delivery, though, could definitely use some work.

Oh, and just in case Petersen’s tweet wasn’t going to get enough attention with his 8,000+ followers, the game’s most notorious tweeting player, Marlins teammate Logan Morrison, retweeted it to his 93,000+ followers.

Petersen, for what it’s worth, was pretty impressive with his .265/.357/.387 line in 204 at-bats last season, though that came with all of 10 RBI (he hit .300 with the bases empty, .203 with runners on). He has a chance to be a pretty good part-timer going forward, but as far more of a fringe player than Morrison, he’s not going to get as much leeway for any missteps.
