The Chicago White Sox have something special in Tim Anderson. He is having a nice Twitter beef with Brad Keller who you might remember in the bat flip game.

You all remember one of the most memorable Chicago White Sox regular-season games of the past decade or so. That game would be “The Bat Flip” game against the Kansas City Royals last season. It was the game that Tim Anderson chucked his bat back at the White Sox dugout after hitting a home run off of Royals pitcher Brad Keller.

In Anderson’s next at-bat, Keller threw at him and it caused a benches-clearing scene. It was a moment that saw the White Sox come together as a team and Anderson became a leader on the team. He showed that the White Sox are for real and are a team that people are going to need to be afraid of sooner than later. It caused a little bit of a stir between the White Sox and Royals and sort of let the world know that this rivalry can become something one day.

Well, this memory is the gift that keeps on giving. Tim Anderson and Brad Keller both have Twitter accounts. They haven’t had much interaction with each other but there is still clearly a bit of Twitter beef. They each have commented on something related to the incident in different ways. Brad Keller replied to a post from NBC Sports Chicago about who the biggest “Chicago Villian” is.

Meanwhile, Anderson had a quote tweet about Brad Keller’s comments on a tweet from the White Sox NBC Sports account. It is still clearly something that both players think about when anything White Sox vs Royals comes up. Keller made some comments that make him seem like he’s still mad about it and Anderson took exception. It doesn’t matter what side of the fence you fall on, it is entertainment no matter how you look at it.

Hot. The Chicago White Sox should go for Marcus Stroman. light

Tim Anderson went on to have a great year including winning the Major League Batting Title. He didn’t seem to let the incident bother him too much but hopefully, this can become a rivalry for fans of both teams.
