Oakland Athletics Josh Reddick was Offended by My Tweet

Josh Reddick tweeted with pride about Bartolo Colon's performance against the White Sox. My response unintentionally soured him and his fan's moods.

Josh Reddick, right fielder of the Oakland Athletics, took to Twitter early in the morning on June 1 with praise for his teammate Bartolo Colon's complete-game shutout earlier that night against the Chicago White Sox. My response to his tweet would clearly offend Reddick and turn a number of A's fans into his virtual bodyguards.

The tweet was simple and expressed his pride in his pitcher's performance:

Bartolo. Nuff said


I half-jokingly and impulsively responded:

@joshreddick16 He's just using testosterone again, Josh.


Reddick, being the nice guy that he is, quickly responded with sarcasm instead of vitriol:

@b_zager there's a positive attitude.


There's a reason I'm following Josh Reddick on Twitter even though I'm a Miami Marlins fan. He's a cool baseball personality. I'm not following him to spew hatred his way or anything like that. My tweet was just meant to be a joke. My next reply referred to Colon's previous suspension last season for using testosterone:

@joshreddick16 you can't blame anyone for thinking that


To my surprise, Reddick quickly responded to me again, which told me that this was something he felt he needed to defend. Another simple tweet read:

@b_zager blaming you


Those two words, "blaming you," hit me hard at that moment.

You can't read emotions through a tweet, but I felt bad about myself and what I had said as I read that. Nice guy Josh Reddick did not appreciate my words, and neither did A's fans who read his tweets towards me. They responded with comments which referred to my cynicism due to being a fan of the worst team in baseball. I couldn't disagree.

I received about seven or eight more responses from insulted A's fans. A few more of them simply questioned by assumption that Colon was using performance enhancing drugs again due to his old age and excellent play.

All in all, not one of them cursed at me, which was a pleasant surprise considering the forum of the conversation. Seems like A's fans are pretty classy for the most part.


Brett is a resident of north Georgia and has been a Miami Marlins fan all his life. He attended Florida State University and graduated with a degree in sport management. Feel free to berate him for this on Twitter @B_Zager.
