Because I know how ignorant people can be, especially on Twitter, I figured today’s news of Josh Hamilton’s big signing with the Angels would prompt some very personal attacks on the social network. After a quick search, it was pretty clear I was right.
Compiled below are some of the worst of the worst. Keep in mind that these are some of the same people who just yesterday were praying for Hamilton to sign with their team.
I give it a season and a half tops until josh Hamilton is found dead in a ditch overdosed on heroin somewhere in southern California
