The internet can be a real jerk sometimes, and professional athletes probably know this better than most. Any time they screw up, they hear about it from about a million Twitter trolls. Which probably sucks.

Fortunately for Cubs pitcher Jon Lester, he knows how to handle himself on social media. After his embarrassing inability to throw the ball to first base reared its ugly head on Monday, people had plenty of negative things to say. But he didn’t let it get him down. And, in a few cases, he fired right back at them…

He still kept things playful, though…

And it turns out, most trolls back down pretty quickly when you confront them directly…

Of course, not all of Lester’s fan interaction was contentious and discourteous…

Fun times. Nice White Sox burn!

Now, put your phone down and go work on that pickoff move.
