Josh Hader is having an terrific season on the mound. His ERA is at an astounding 1.39, his WHIP a dominant 0.77, he has 1 1/3 scoreless innings, and an outrageous 96 strikeouts in just 51.2 innings. His social media though it much less outstanding than this All-Star season. Over the All-Star break, fans discovered ​a number of his old tweets that just so happened to be misogynistic, racist, and homophobic. And when he first took the mound in San Francisco -- his first road appearance since the controversy -- he was welcomed a certain way.

Not too many boos and not especially thundering, but they were enough to make a statement. It's definitely a much more different experience from the standing ovation that Hader received when he opened the second half of the season in at home Milwaukee.

Other folks have issued strong opinions about Hader's situation, too.

To his credit, Hader has owned up to what he did and claims to be a different person than the 17-year-old version of himself that went so far out of bounds. That's one step in the right direction. Kudos to his ​Brewers teammates for having his back, too.


However, it will be a while before he lives all this down, and rightfully so. He should expect more boos at other road games in the meantime.
