After the Blue Jays' win over the Red Sox Sunday, Toronto pitcher Marcus Stroman went on a Twitter offensive toward NESN analyst Dennis Eckersley regarding comments made about Stroman's animated demeanor on the mound.
Monday Stroman highlighted those who pointed out Eckersley pitched in a similar fashion during his playing days.

Eckersley later went on the Red Sox Radio Network pregame show with Will Fleming to discuss the incident further:
