Majestic’s Twitter account promotes a fan wearing a counterfeit jersey

Majestic, the official uniform outfitter of Major League Baesball, is out and about at the All-Star Game. They are snapping photos of fans in baseball jerseys. Seems like a cool thing.

But take a look at the above image they shared. The quality of the lettering and the jersey itself clearly shows that it is not an official product. It appears to be a counterfeit jersey from China. Especially if you compare the nameplate lettering.

How very odd that they would promote such behavior on their Twitter. There is no excuse for that.

Yoenis Cespedes wins Home Run Derby again, which means Twitter negatively reacts to him not speaking English

But with this great achievement, we also get the negative reaction on Twitter. Like last year, people went to Twitter to complain about how Yoenis Cespedes didn’t conduct his interview in English.

Cespedes is in his third year living in America after defecting from Cuba and joining the A’s. Learning a new language isn’t easy and maybe he isn’t fully comfortable speaking in public in English.

Lids and their poor-timing Manny Machado ad

Lids put out this tweet advertising Manny Machado and his comeback. (It was also put on their Facebook.) This comeback, I assume, is in reference to the season-ending injury he suffered last season.

But of course, if you mention Manny Machado’s name, the thing that pops up to your mind was his stupidity from last weekend.

Temper tantrums. Evil smiles. Throwing bats at people. That’s what comes to mind.

So is it a comeback from the five-game suspension that he was handed for all that?

Redskins’ use of #RedskinsPride may not be the best idea

Most times, a tweet like this is harmless. But with the Redskins and their name controversy, it was really harmful to their image.

The Twitter reaction to this has been brutal.

MLB’s Facebook page went full Chinese

The battle of the 2009 draft prospects — in Chinese!

Before realizing the oddity of it all and deleting it, Major League Baseball’s Facebook page posted the above update. It is about the upcoming matchup between the Nationals and Red, featuring Stephen Strasburg and Billy Hamilton. Both were products of the 2009 draft and now they face off.

Of course, there were lots of confusion as to why the entire post was posted in Chinese. Was this an error by MLB in an attempt to write something in Chinese but posting it in the wrong place?

The entry was deleted shortly thereafter but for a couple minutes it was very odd to see MLB post something that was completely out of the ordinary and something that I could read (well, most of it.)

Rapper The Game plays minor league baseball

The Stockton Ports minor league team tweeted out their starting lineup and quickly deleted it after realizing they didn’t tweet the right photo. Instead of tweeting an image of the starting lineup, they tweeted the tracklist to West Coast gangster rapper The Game’s sophomore album.

I don’t know how you can mess that up, but for a moment there, I was kind of hoping that The Game was playing minor league ball.

Here was the image they tweeted out.

That’s not a starting lineup.

This is the corrected tweet.

 

NBA fans see the Raptors’ baseline for the first time and go crazy

The baseline is tripping people out.

The Toronto Raptors have had their optical illusion baseline for a few seasons. But since they aren’t a big name team, casual fans probably have never watched a Raptors home game until today’s playoff opener.

Because of that, we saw some funny reactions on Twitter to the baseline.

MLB Network had one really misinformed tweet

MLB Network’s Twitter page shared a tweet about Xander Bogaerts breaking up Chris Sale’s no-hitter bid.

The problem, however, is that MLB Network claims it was Bogaerts’ first ever big league home run. That actually is not true. He hit his first homer last season.

People on Twitter made sure they were aware of it.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson tweets during halftime

It’s halftime right now between the Warriors and Lakers game and head coach Mark Jackson sent out this tweet.

Using his iPhone, Jackson tweeted out this message of inspiration (maybe). I am not sure if this was a scheduled tweet or an accidental tweet. Maybe someone is tweeting on his account. Apparently it’s happened before.

Either way, fans are reacting to it.
