On Thursday's edition of MLB Now, Hawk Harrelson joined Brian Kenny and Harold Reynolds to discuss his disdain of sabermetrics. Of course, Harrelson's appearance did nothing to prove his point (as you can tell in the video above), and drove fans up the wall. Here are some Real Tweets from Real People discussing Hawk's appearance...

Yes, kind of a big deal. RT @castrocp Only thing worth measuring, to Hawk, is The Will to Win. I'd argue also batting & pitching & fielding— sabr (@sabr) April 25, 2013
