The Boston Red Sox opened the season against the Tampa Bay Rays on March 29. On that day they took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the eighth, but blew it badly, coughing up six runs that frame and losing the game 6-4.
Chris Sale was great that day, but the bullpen blew up badly, with Joe Kelly being the biggest goat, allowing four runs in a third of an inning. It was a bad, bad day for the Sox, and many of their fans — apparently forgetting in the offseason that a single regular baseball game is essentially meaningless — freaked the heck out.
Overnight, whoever is running the Red Sox Twitter account had an inspired idea: to go back and respond to the Tweets from March 29. A sampling:
Petty? Maybe. Silly? Sure. But surprisingly hilarious. And when you win the World Series you can do anything you want to, so no complaints here.
