Carlos Martinez “favorites” porn; Cardinals clean up his twitter feed
JUPITER, FL -It was a distraction Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said they didn’t need during spring training: cleaning up a player’s inappropriate tweet.
Pitcher Carlos Martinez favorited pornographic material on Twitter on Monday and by Monday evening, the link had gone viral. Those “favorites” could be seen on Twitter and fans and the media noticed.
Martinez’s links went viral. A video of the links was put together by the sports gossip website Deadspin.
The St. Louis St. Louis Post-Dispatch says Cardinals management has been busy working with Martinez to clean up the mess. The trouble started on Monday afternoon and they were unable to reach him until that evening.
Manager Mike Matheny spoke with the media Tuesday morning saying, “We’re embarrassed and he’s embarrassed.” The tweet was deleted and Martinez acknowledged his mistake, according to Matheny.
