Via Larry Brown Sports:
The Texas Rangers had a day off in New York on Monday before their series began with the Yankees, and pitcher Derek Holland tried to make the most of it. On Monday night at around 5:00 p.m. EST, Holland tweeted that he was heading off the the Counting Crows concert.
The Crows were playing a show at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey, so the left-hander decided to check it out.
It did not go well.
At around 10:30 p.m. Holland began ranting about how he had been kicked out of the concert.
It sounds like Holland was getting a bit too rowdy for the band and was asked to leave. We don’t really know what happened other than what he says, but many concerts strictly prohibit the audience from taking pictures. Perhaps that was the case in New Jersey. In any event, Holland no longer likes the state.
Again, we don’t know the details of what happened and Holland has since deleted the tweets. All we know is that videobombs like this and cars like this have shown us Holland loves to have a good time, which was apparently not cool with security at the Counting Crows concert. It doesn’t sound like this guy will be signing with the Mets or Yankees at any point in the future.
