It’s National BBQ Day (whatever that is) and Wendy’s delivered the meat.
Oooh, that’s going to leave a mark.
If you remember (you should) in the 2020 World Series, which seems like it was only 20 years ago, manager of the Rays Kevin Cash took out ace Blake Snell in the sixth inning of a dominant start to the World Series of Game 6. The Rays quickly lost the game and the Series to the Dodgers, giving Cash a prominent place on the list of the worst management mistakes of all times (and cost Tampa a shot at a trophy trifecta in 2020-21).
Snell, a 28-year-old Cy Young Award winner, had fun with the burn:
Snell is now in the charged San Diego Padres because Tampa’s goal is not to get back to the World Series, but to try and experiment on how little they can pay their players and remain a viable franchise. Snell joins Fernando Tatis Jr. Manny Machado and Mike Clevinger on the most exciting team in baseball.
Whoever Wendy’s social media manager is, they should get a raise for posting that amazing tweet in just five minutes, earning 12K likes in an hour. However, it probably won’t happen because, like most American corporations, Wendy’s (worth around $ 5 billion) likes to pay its 12,000 employees as little as possible. Last month, Wendy’s employees joined other fast food workers in a strike to demand higher wages.
