Brett Lawrie’s sister has just as much fun on Twitter as he does

May 27, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

Brett Lawrie has a bit of a checkered Twitter history. He’s a Twitter drama queen and goes after “haters” and all that stuff that you’d think a highly-paid professional athlete would and should be above. But he’s a kid, really, and kids do silly stuff on social media all the time.

And it appears to run in the family. This from his sister, Danielle Lawrie, who herself is an olympic softball player, after brother Brett was ejected during Friday night’s Jays-Orioles game for throwing his helmet:

My compliments on the use of the past tense in that last one.  And for ignoring the fact that Lawrie has a much more checkered history with throwing helmets than he does with Twitter.

      Bet she could beat you at softball.

        She would strike him out all the time.

        Well, it IS a women’s sport.

      Only “lol” if you’re a sexist dick

    Went to her twitter and checked out her pics. She has the same skull as Glenn Quagmire.

      She actually looks a lot like her brother. That’s not a bad thing; he’s not an ugly guy. The whole family just needs to chill a bit.

    In the incident in question, Lawrie did deserve to be tossed after his display of displeasure; however, the strike 2 call on him was quite dubious. Very few umps would call a curve that was above the letters a strike. The third strike was borderline at the knees. The ump could have gone either way on it. When it comes to umpires, Baseball is not a believer in freedom of speech and freedom of expression so Lawrie got tossed. On the other hand, fans are free to criticize decisions made by umpires even if players can’t and we have seen a lot of bad calls this season including a lot of pitches called strikes that were not strikes..

    Wish Brett was as good with his bat as he is with his mouth. I see it runs in the family.

    I seriously hope that #callthegamerightdouches trends on Twitter.

    That’s a beautiful hashtag.

    she’s a real little spitfire, by the way, he has a spider web tattoo on his elbow, those mean you’re a hardcore biker or been in prison, apparently he doesn’t know that.

    …Cuz this is going to make the umps stop actively looking for ways to toss him…

    Okay, what’s wrong with saying “drama king” or “drama boy”?

  9. thebadguyswon - May 27, 2013 at 5:38 PM

    He’s not a kid. He’s an adult and a d-bag.

    “The umps can suck it”
    – just the kind of girl you want to take home to Mom.

    I can’t disagree that the umps have made some god awful calls this year.

    What else would you expect from Canadians?
