Did the Red Sox troll Brian Cashman on Twitter after thrashing Yankees?

The Boston Red Sox rolled right over the New York Yankees on Thursday night, thrashing their division rivals by a score of 15-7 at Fenway Park.

The lopsided victory allowed the Red Sox to open up a 6.5-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East. It also allowed Boston to deliver some snark on social media at the Bronx Bomber’s expense by seemingly trolling Yankees general manager Brian Cashman over some recent comments.

The Red Sox spent a majority of the game — not to mention afterward — gleefully enjoying taking it to the hated Yankees. Once it was all said and done, though, the Red Sox appeared to mock Cashman over a quote in which he argues the Yankees are the only team capable of doing “damage” against them.

“You wonder what their record would be if they weren’t playing us,” Cashman said earlier this week at the trade deadline, via’s Bryan Hoch. “Because when we go head to head, we do some damage against them and it doesn’t seem like anybody else is capable.”

The Rex Sox’s tweeted retort? Subtle, to say the least.


Three games remain in the four-game series, one that quickly is turning into a critical stand for the Yankees if the team hopes to tighten up the race for the AL East. The Red Sox, on the other hand, can create some significant breathing room at the top of the division.

With so much on the line, expect the fireworks to continue, both on and off the field. And that’s regardless of which team may or may not be inflicting the much ballyhooed “damage” on the other.
