(AP Photo) Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich may have gotten away from the Miami Marlins, but time hasn’t healed his frustration with the organization.

Yelich specifically called out Samson for his “anti-play rhetoric.”

The exchange started after Samson replied to a message from Houston Astros starter Justin Verlander. The 35-year-old Verlander joined the chorus of Major League Baseball players who have publicly spoken out against the slow offseason.

Samson told Verlander that tweeting about the issue won’t solve things. He then added that the players and agents will need to adjust to a “new reality.”

That’s when Yelich dropped in to tell his old boss he wasn’t surprised by Samson’s “anti-player rhetoric.” Yelich added that Samson’s idea wasn’t exactly a solution for the players.

Samson attempted to clarify he wasn’t talking specifically about Yelich. He also told Yelich to be “careful what we all wish for. Strikes/Lockouts are not the panacea.”

Samson was the Marlins’ president until the new ownership group — led by Derek Jeter — purchased the team. He was let go after that acquisition.

Since then, Samson has appeared on Dan Le Batard’s ESPN radio show spilling secrets about the team. Video also emerged of Samson yelling “$1.2 billion, f— you” at booing Marlins fans. Both Samson and Le Batard later said that was part of a skit.

Because of that, Samson doesn’t have the greatest reputation with fans. If Yelich’s comments are an indication, Marlins players didn’t love Samson all that much either.

If there’s anything to take away from this exchange, it’s that we need a tell-all book on the Marlins during the Jeffrey Loria and Samson era in the next couple years. Players other than Yelich might have some fun things to say about the way that organization was run.

Democrats allowing Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic rhetoric to be standard-bearer for the party

Democrats allowing Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic rhetoric to be standard-bearer for the party Rep. Ilhan Omar sparked outrage Sunday from both Democrats and Republicans after asserting on Twitter that U.S. support for Israel is based on monetary support from Jewish groups, especially AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The freshman congresswoman’s egregious use of an anti-Semitic trope to criticize her political opponents is deeply concerning for the state of our nation amid a significant rise in anti-Semitic hate crimes and the massacre of 11 American Jews at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh last October. Omar’s remarks are unbecoming of a U.S.
