Instant reactions on Twitter to just about anything are fascinating. Some of the tweets about this deal are way over the top. Here's a selection.

During the immediate aftermath of the Cubs' deal of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Athletics, BCBer jameslcrockett was posting Twitter reactions in the comments to my article announcing the trade. I thought those reactions were worth putting in a front-page article. Here, without further comment, are all those tweets, along with some from my own timeline from Friday night and early Saturday. Some are from baseball writers, some are from fans, the whole sequence -- this is more or less in chronological order -- is worth reading.

Yes, there's a bit of profanity. Worth preserving the moment, I think.
