Garza recently got into a sparring match with Eric Sogard's wife Kayce, after the A's 1st baseman laid down a safety squeeze against Garza. The Rangers pitcher had some words for Sogard, whereupon Mrs Sogard had a tweet in repsonse for Garza:
Contrast this with some typical Norris entries:
To his credit, Garza did apologize for his outburst next day. At the same time, Norris shows more maturity and restraint.
As we've seen with the unfortunate JP Arencibia Twitter episode this summer, sometimes social media makes athletes and celebrities a little bit too accessible for some fans. And again, in fairness to Garza, he may be more of a target than a prospect playing low-A ball. One would think a major leaguer would have thicker skin than that.
Interesting, just the same.
