Sergio Romo and Ray Knight are arguing in my mentions

Ray Knight was probably voicing the opinion a lot of Nationals fans by calling out Sergio Romo on Twitter Tuesday.

For that reason, I decided to retweet Knight's displeasure with the Rays closer – for jawing at Michael A. Taylor (over extreme pettiness) after striking him out to end Tuesday's game – into my own personal timeline.

A short time later, one of my followers – obviously no fan of Knight's – decided to let Knight know he disagreed with his criticism of Romo. He also took the courtesy of tagging Romo into the conversation. Splendid.

Over the next day and a half, my mentions served as a proving ground for Knight and Romo to lob grenades at one another.

I gave it a couple of hours, in hopes the banter would die down and I could shamelessly share it with you here to completion, but the bombast just kept coming, and coming... and coming.

Fortunately, I wasn't alone in getting mixed up in this bizarre Twitter crossfire. 

Former National Kevin Frandsen also got caught up, after following Knight's lead in ripping Romo without tagging him.

Although this interaction took on an especially awkward feel, as Romo and Frandsen – once teammates for two seasons in San Francisco (2008-09) – have history together.

I'm sure it'll end here. I'm sure of it.
