If Josh Thole of the New York Mets thought the media in the Big Apple was critical, think again.
The struggling catcher quit Twitter this week after fans took to the social media tool to express their feelings on his slow start.
“I thought this was supposed to be fun,” Thole told The Star-Ledger Wednesday. “They’re ruthless on there.”
The tweets ranged from the usual colorful name-calling to my personal favorite – - hitting advice.
Based on his .239 average and .577 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, Thole could use all the advice he can get at this point.
