The Chicago Cubs Twitter account had time on Wednesday night after it trolled someone for making a comment about rookie Patrick Wisdom’s age.
The Chicago Cubs may have let down fans this season after trading away the majority of its remaining players from the 2016 World Series, but at least the Twitter account is providing entertainment by clapping back at trolls.
The Cubs need to celebrate their small victories during a major rebuilding phase and that’s just what they were doing on Twitter whenever a troll decided to chime in.
If you’re a troll, avoid mentioning the Chicago Cubs’ Twitter account
En route to a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night, Chicago’s Twitter account posted a tweet about third baseman Patrick Wisdom tying a Cubs rookie record after he hit home run No. 26 of the year.
Correction, Renegadesx312, Wisdom is actually 30-years-old. Yeah, that’s still old for a rookie, but he had only brief appearances in the MLB during the years 2018-20. Wisdom appeared in a combined 43 games prior to this season. Therefore, he’s a rookie.
And if you’re wondering about what Renegadesx312 has written in their bio, it reads “Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.”
Everyone has to start somewhere, whether that means being a rookie at the ripe age of 30, and it all begins with perseverance. I’d say that a great work is tying Kris Bryant’s number of home runs that he hit during his rookie year. We all know what Bryant meant to the Cubs organization.
Could Wisdom be the next Bryant? After all, age is just a number.
To all of the 30-year-olds out there, keep persevering.
