Chris Davis Deletes Twitter Account After Questions About Steroids Use
Twitter isn’t for the faint of heart, that’s for sure.
Chris ‘Crush’ Davis–the home run hitting sensation who’s taken the baseball world by storm has found that out the hard way.
Davis made the decision last week, and as reported by the Baltimore Sun via Larry Brown Sports he stated the following:
“I gave it about a year,” he said. “I told [PR director Monica Barlow] I’d try it for a year and see how I felt about it. It wasn’t my cup of tea. There was no correlation with any time of the year or anything like that. I tried it for about a year and it just wasn’t something I was into.”
Although vague one has to assume that Davis was just dog tired of constantly hearing about steroids. Sadly, when players these days chase any kind of home run records one can’t help but bring up the topic–plus the fact MLB is in the middle of a huge PED scandal, it makes sense.
One can sympathize for Davis, who if clean (he’s reportedly passed all drug tests) is just an innocent bystander to the poor choices made by his peers and is unfairly being lumped with the abusers.
Maybe more athletes should know when to step away from social media instead of resorting to arguing with ‘haters’ all day.
