It was an interesting Thursday for the Tampa Bay Rays after ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the team was granted permission to “explore becoming a two-team city,” splitting time between St. Petersburg, Fla. and Montreal.

Even though the Rays becoming a team split between two cities may not happen, it still caused Twitter to do its thing, with many angry Major League Baseball fans and writers questioning the decision.
Take a look at some of the best tweets:
