Let’s see what Twitter thought of the deal.

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Detroit Tigers Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, the Marlins signed starting pitcher Edinson Volquez to a two-year, $22 million deal. Since we are in the year 2016 and the golden age of social media, of course there were plenty of reactions on Twitter. Here are some of them.

Baseball Blogger Jeff Sullivan brings up Volquez’s 2008 season with the Reds, in which he posted a 3.21 ERA and 9.46 strikeouts per nine in 196 innings.

Rustin Dodd, who covers the Royals for The Kansas City Star, mentions how Volquez will always be loved by the Royals.

As usual, the fan reaction was all over the place. There will always be positive and negative people.

Never stop tweeting, everyone. Never stop.
