Aaron Hernandez's cousin has been in jail since August 1st for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury. Authorities seem to believe that Hernandez's cousin Tanya Cummings-Singleton purchased a bus ticket for Ernest Wallace, who is charged with accessory.

Ortiz told police he discussed the murder of Odin Lloyd with Cummings-Singleton.

Now Braves GM Frank Wren is calling it "an inappropriate attempt at humor (Harper is famously known for telling a reporter "that's a clown question, bro.") But it doesn't say much for the game if they can police themselves by overreacting to things with fastball pitches to the physical body, then can't at least laugh about it on Twitter. C'mon.
