The Tweet

At Sports Philosopher, finding the good for the soul stories are a priority. The +MLB players provided just that, and it was the use of technology and social media that is predicted to be the end of civilization that provided the warmth.

"...the end of civilization."

It was the tweet heard 'round the league. A pitcher for the +New York Mets, Noah Syndergaad, beened Carlos Gomez of the +Milwaukee Brewers. After the game, the pitcher and the batter had this twitter exchange:

The age of reason speaks through forms of communication that were not around when I played. There were many times I wanted to send a message to a rival or a friend, and I would have to wait until I saw him or her weeks or months later if I didn't have their home number. Now your conscience/soul can be instantly brought to solitude in an instant. The exchanges can go the other way that can escalate horribly, but these things can happen for the best. With this good exchange, I can finally quote the band, Styx, "These are the best, of times!"

Good show Noah and Carlos, from us at Sports Philosopher.
