Twins-Braves get into war of words on Twitter


The Twins and Braves got into a fun war of tweets on Wednesday.

Atlanta might have been a little irked when Twins announcer Dan Gladden kept hanging a Kent Hrbek jersey from the radio booth throughout the series.

Not a bad play on the word "sweep" as the Braves swept the Twins in Atlanta. Hrbek's jersey was significant because he was a key player in the 1991 World Series, where the Twins topped the Braves in seven games.

The Twins responded to the tweet from the Braves with a tweet of their own.

That's the 1991 World Series trophy -- something the Braves can never take away from the Twins.

At the very least, the Twins public relations department is having some fun during the team's eight game losing streak.
