Found August 04, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:
credit photo to AP/Ben Margot Message to the American League. Matt Garza DOES NOT LIKE WHEN YOU BUNT ON HIM!  Just ask Oakland A’s shortstop Eric Sogard, who successfully sacrifice bunted in the first inning in the first inning that lead to an early run; but he taunted Garza again with an RBI bunt in the seventh inning of an 4-2 A’s victory against the Texas Rangers. Though the tweets don’t fit the crime, only Matt Garza can interpret his mini tantrum when attacking Sogard and his wife! Sogard is a .273 hitter with two home runs.  Garza better pray the next time these two meet, Sogard doesn’t get a hit.  He may want to take to twitter and tease Garza a little more.  As for Garza, he later calmed down and offered an apology, sort of . These two teams will continue to battle for the American League West for the remainder of the season, Oakland A’s has a 3.5 game lead over the Texas Rangers.  Matt may want to dial it down a little as he is near free agency.

Matt Garza is not of a fan of bunts, Eric Sogard

Thanks to a solid game plan, the A’s got out to a quick start on Matt Garza and the Rangers Saturday and held on for the 4-2 win to extend their lead in the AL West to 3.5 games.

Matt Garza Goes on Sexist Twitter Rant Against Eric Sogard, Athletic’s Wife, Triggered by Squeeze Bunt

It’s looking like a good decision by the Red Sox to pass on acquiring Matt Garza at the trade deadline.
