    A Fed Up Tim Flannery Writes Lengthy Rant to Padres Fans

    Former Padres player and coach, Tim Flannery, vented some frustrations on Twitter Wednesday night.

    Flannery, who won three World Series rings with Bruce Bochy as a coach with the San Francisco Giants seems to be fighting back against what he's calling angry Padres fans over some attacks on social media.

    The seemingly laid back retiree had some choice words and pictures to make his point.

    His rant, in the form of a screenshot picture, started off by saying, in part, "We have lived with the 'you're traders! Come back and win for us.' We won in SF for many reasons…"

    He goes on to say, "Then you have the ignorance to tweet me, shame, while your team only won ever when we were there, but that makes you experts, but you're not the history of the team, we are."

    He topped off his ran by adding, "I'm a Giant for life.”

    Based on some replies and Twitter interaction, Flannery seems to have reached a breaking point after dealing with copious messages from angry Twitter users.

    After the initial post, Flannery tweeted a series of pictures from his 11-year playing career in San Diego showcasing his accomplishments with the team.

    Those who responded received direct responses from Flannery as he continued to express how fed up he was with the negative comments on the social media site.

    Although the fans have been very vocal, there has been no response from the Padres organization.

    On Thursday, Flannery posted a few more times to his Twitter feed and apologized for "engaging the trolls."
