According to sources, Major League Baseball became upset when Medina would humorously change their tweets and "retweet" them with a satirical spin. This led to his being blocked by the MLB, an action which is pretty much has no consequences.
This didn't stop Medina from calling into the Dan Patrick Show and laying into the MLB commisioner:
“There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Allan Huber Selig — yeah, that’s Bud’s real name — mistook this rock star for an easy target, bro. Check it, Dan: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process.”The MLB then countered by releasing this statement regarding The Apple's phony re-tweets:
Congrats to The Apple, that was the blockomatic tweet. Never fake-RT. We blocked him w/out a 2nd thought.This apparently only served to anger Medina more:
"The MLB is saying "Don't be special, be one of us." Newsflash! I AM special and I will never be one of you."When asked about why he is so confident that he will come out on top of this dispute:
"I'm a Mets fan. I've taken more punishment than anybody could survive… I was bangin’ seven-game collapses and coming back for more because that’s how I roll, because I have one speed, one gear. Go. I’m different. I have a different constitution. I have a different brain. I have a different heart. I got Mets blood, man. Winner Winner Apple Dinner!"Medina then climbed to the roof of his office building and waved a machete for a few hours.
