Wait, what? Let’s go to the New York papers to see what’s up.

Wow! Twinsies headlines.

Not so fast …

What sparked that? Boston Red Sox free agent Jacoby Ellsbury is bolting to the New York Yankees.

For $153 million. Over seven years.

Not only is it a massive deal monetarily, but the fact that Ellsbury is moving from the Sox to the Yankees is huge news. The rivalry is fierce and has a heated history.

Twitter was buzzing with the news Tuesday night.

Boston fans expressed their disapproval as only the die-hard fan can.

Some congratulated Ellsbury, though, while not masking their Yankees hatred, heh.

And that leads us back to the hilarious “trader” mishaps.

No seriously. They did.


This Twitter user brings it all home.



Never change, Twitter.
