This Indians Beat Writer Went Full Troll Mode Last Night

Last night, the Cleveland Indians pulled out a 3-2 extra-inning win over the (as of right now) tied-for-first-place Royals to bring the Tribe within 3.5 games of the top of the division and 3.5 games out of the Wild Card spot. There's really nothing to complain about with the Indians as of late, coming on strong with a month full of division games ahead of them.

Except if you're Chris Assenheimer, Tribe beat writer for the Chronicle-Telegram, who seemed to go full troll mode on Twitter last night just before the Indians put the game in the win column. Who knows why. Maybe it was a bad hot dog. Maybe he really wanted to watch his DVR of Naked Dating and the extra-inning affair was delaying that sweet gratification.

It started with this curt statement about Josh Tomlin, who pitched some relief last night and got the W.

Step one.

Then the Tribe's media relations account on Twitter chimed in.

+1 Bart Swain.

And then the fans started chiming in, and that's when Chris went after them, calling them clowns, nobodies, losers and more. Enjoy.
