Eduardo Escobar thanks Twins fans better than any player has ever thanked fans before

I’m not even being dramatic here.

Often, when a beloved player is traded, they try to express their love and gratitude to the fans they are leaving in some sort of public way. This said love and gratitude usually comes in the form of a full-page ad in the local newspaper. Even though Newspapers are basically dead, players still seem to take this approach — except if you’re Eduardo Escobar.

Escobar — who the Twins traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday — has stepped into the 22nd century of players addressing the beloved fans they are involuntarily leaving via trade with the issue of the following tweet:

How is Ryan Pressly supposed to even follow that up?

I mean, I do have some questions: Who made this? Did Eduardo Escobar make this? Is this real? Did someone slip me some cool drugs? Did he have this ready to go in case of any trade? Why is he wearing a suit? What is on the suit? Is it a name tag?

Really, though, at the end of the day, it’s probably best these question stay unanswered. Eduardo Escobar is best just in his full, unexplained glory.
