Blue Jays, Royals escalate feud by trading barbs on Twitter

TORONTO (AP) The Royals and Blue Jays have moved on: After an exchange of hit batters, they're now trading barbs on Twitter.

First, Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista posted a message Sunday night saying he had "lost a lot of respect" for Ned Yost after hearing the Royals manager praise home plate umpire Jim Wolf's handling of Sunday's game.

Two Blue Jays batters were hit by pitches and reliever Aaron Sanchez was ejected for retaliating by hitting Kansas City infielder Alcides Escobar.
