Red Sox engage in war of words with Marcus Stroman

It seems like the Red Sox and Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman don't get along.

The Red Sox appeared to be displeased with Stroman quick-pitching rookie Michael Chavis during Tuesday night's 10-3 loss to Toronto, and had words for the righty both during the game and after the game.

That little incident led to a squabble between Stroman and the Red Sox bench. The NESN broadcast captured home plate umpire Alan Porter telling someone in the Red Sox dugout to stop, and Stroman has since said that both Chavis and Chris Sale were chirping him about the quick pitch.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora criticized Stroman after the game and complained about the way the right-hander carries himself on the mound.

"It’s the same thing with him every day. He competes a certain way and people don’t like it," Cora said about Stroman. "It seems like whenever a team comes in, somebody screams at him. I don’t know, that’s the way he acts."

Stroman hasn't shied away from expressing his feelings on the incident. He was active on social media Wednesday, sharing his philosophy on competition, Cora, and who the bad guy in this whole situation is:

The Red Sox will likely see Stroman again this year. We'll see if any ill will lingers.
