The Oakland Athletics added some pitching on Monday by acquiring Mike Fiers from the Detroit Tigers. That should be the story right there: the cheap-ass A’s, who have the third lowest payroll in the MLB, opened up the wallet to add a middling pitcher as they make their random charge for the Wild Card game.
Instead, there’s a secondary story making the rounds on Twitter because Fiers apparently liked a tweet from a Tigers fan calling for him to “hit [Giancarlo] Stanton in the mouth.” Why does a Tigers fan want to punish Stanton? Who knows, but Fiers liked it:


Fiers, of course, drilled Stanton in the face back in 2014, which left a mark or two on the slugger:

The righty had an explanation for this Tuesday, tweeting that he was going through congratulatory tweets so fast that he somehow liked it:

People, specifically Yankees fans, on Twitter fired back by asking why he blocked people who tweeted at him:

Fiers and Stanton had some minor drama back in June:
