Morrow takes to Twitter, apologizes for grazing Wells’ ‘schnaz’

Aug 18, 2011, 9:20 PM EDT


You’ve got to love how social media brings people together. In fact, I’d like to nominate Twitter for The Nobel Peace Prize.

Can I do that? As it turns out, no.

But I’ll forge ahead anyway in praising the peace-making qualities of Twitter. Case in point:

Last night, in his first start in Seattle since the Mariners traded him to Toronto, Brandon Morrow came up-and-in with a fastball to Casper Wells, hitting him in the nose. It was a glancing blow, but scary nonetheless, and one had to wonder if it was payback for Blake Beavan buzzing some Blue Jays earlier in the game, or some sort of in-your-face message to Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik.

Not so, it appears, as Morrow took to Twitter to apologize to Wells last night:


Wells responded within a couple hours with some light-hearted humor.


Then someone pulled out an acoustic guitar – it was Bernie Williams, I think – and everyone gathered around the camp fire and sang Kumbaya. I might have made that last part up. But it does warm the heart doesn’t it?

As far as Seattle being amazing. Yes it is, fellas, but get back to me in February.

    He’s incredibly lucky it didn’t get him flush, Morrow was really lighting it up last night. I think the one Wells took in the face was a 97 mph fastball. Could’ve been really bad so I’m glad to see he’s doing ok

    I watched that game mainly because of Morrow and his propensity for delivering 98mph bow-ties. He was visibly worried, and I think he was pulled after finishing that inning (Toronto had a very comfortable lead), and there was no retaliation — maybe because Wells was diving across the plate looking for a slider away. He’d done it on the previous pitch, so the followup was to be expected. And it is nice to see twitter used for good and not evil on occasion.

    Why should they get back to you in February? Wells’ is gonna be in Arizona.
