Twitter reacts to the (second) Steven Souza trade

Baseball Twitter was all abuzz over the Souza trade. It went as well as you would expect.

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

So Steven Souza Jr. has been traded, and while you’d think Rays Twitter would be used to this sort of thing by now, the reactions from fans (and our own account) indicate no one is ready to deal with this quite yet.

Here is a timeline of the trade (can you pinpoint the exact moment our collective hearts broke?) and some of the best (and worst) Twitter reactions to the Souza Trade 2.0.

Let me just set up my jukebox...

...okay...

COMING OUT OF MY CAGE

AND I’VE BEEN DOING JUST FINE

GOTTA GOTTA GET DOWN

BECAUSE I WANT IT ALL

IT STARTED OUT WITH A KISS

HOW DID IT END UP LIKE THIS

IT WAS ONLY A KISS

IT WAS ONLY A KISS

AND I JUST CAN’T LOOK

IT’S KILLING ME

AND TAKING CONTROL

JEALOUSY TURNING SAINTS INTO THE SEA

SWIMMING THROUGH SICK LULLABIES

CHOKING ON YOUR ALIBIS

(woof, that’s a hot take, there, Keith.)

BUT IT’S JUST THE PRICE I PAY

DESTINY IS CALLING ME

OPEN UP MY EAGER EYES

‘CAUSE I’M MR. BRIGHTSIDE
