Jon Lester engages in grammar showdown on Twitter
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?
