Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester showed off his grammar knowledge Tuesday afternoon on Twitter...sort of.
The exchange started with Lester's tweet about the Cubs' 7-6 Monday night win over the Reds, in which he allowed six runs and 10 hits in six innings.
Twitter user @ryanbowen10 responded by criticizing Lester.
Lester, who often responds to Twitter users both nice and nasty, generously corrected the tweet's grammar.
As @ryanbowen10 stewed, another user spotted some irony in Lester's correction.
Lester could only admit defeat.
@ryanbowen10, meanwhile, continued to be a gentleman about the ordeal.
Isn't social media great?
