Matt Shoemaker is, by all accounts, having a pretty decent rookie season for the Los Angeles Angels.
His beard game is tremendous, he’s got that 12-4 record and, based on this tweet to Will Middlebrooks Thursday night…his wife, currently expecting their first child, is top notch.
Shoemaker’s wife Danielle sent out the “butthole” message shortly after her husband gave up a double to the Boston Red Sox third baseman after 6 2/3 innings of no-hit ball. She would go on to delete the thing, but, man…there was no reason to.
Except people can’t take a joke.
@DanielleMShoe at least he’s better than pathetic Matt Shoemaker

My guess is that a lot of that frustration is more because the Angels went on to beat the Red Sox 2-0, completing a four-game sweep of the 2013 World Series Champs, than it is actually because of the tweet. Either way…some folks need to lighten up.
