Last night Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura went off on Jose Bautista on Twitter, calling him a “nobody” and accusing him of stealing signs. All of this in response to the plunking war between the Blue Jays and Royals yesterday, after which Bautista had negative things to say about Ned Yost.
Ventura has now apologized. He did it to Bautista via Twitter. Or, at least, by screencapping a long apology and then tweeting it at him:

Still wondering how things fly between these two teams should they meet in the playoffs. But for now, it appears, tempers are cooling. As tempers do.
