It’s looking like a good decision by the Red Sox to pass on acquiring Matt Garza at the trade deadline. Not only did Boston trade for Jake Peavy instead, who was stellar in his Red Sox debut, the team also doesn’t have deal with Garza’s controversial tweets. That’s on the Texas Rangers now. Garza went on a tirade against Eric Sogard after the Oakland Athletics shortstop laid down a squeeze bunt in the bottom of the seventh inning, bringing home an insurance run. Garza isn’t the greatest fielder, so the pitcher was none too pleased by the play and barked at Sogard on his way back to the dugout. Garza played it off after the game, telling the press when asked what he said to Sogard, “I asked him if there were any good places to eat in Oakland.” It became clear that’s not what Garza asked when he took to Twitter later. Check out Garza’s strange, sexist tweets directed at Sogard and his wife Kaycee in the screenshot below. Matt Garza is still pissed. Dude is fiery, I'll give him that. #Rangers --> http://t.co/j19x8mYbOF— Mike Taddow (@taddmike) August 04, 2013 It’s unclear what set off Garza. The only tweet on Kaycee Sogard’s Twitter account that references the play is below. Get em on get em over get em in!— Kaycee Sogard (@KayceeSogard) August 03, 2013 Photo of the Day Safe. Tweet of the Day It looks like the Jets are trying to turn into the Patriots. Level of paranoia by some in Jets PR dept over tweeting harmless practice pics & reporting WC/read-option plays in open practices is comical— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 04, 2013 Video of the Day Yasiel Puig plays like a modern-day Bo Jackson.
