Dennis Eckersley silences Bill James over Frank Robinson tweet originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com

Dennis Eckersley remains an efficient worker in his post-retirement days.

The former Boston Red Sox closer apparently took issue with Bill James' tweet Thursday night about Hall of Fame player/manager Frank Robinson, who died Thursday at age 83.

And Eck needed just two words to get his message across.

Here's James' original tweet, which he actually deleted shortly after Eck's curt call-out:

James, officially listed as the Red Sox's senior advisor of baseball operations, is an outspoken supporter of sabermetrics and advanced analytics in baseball, so this tweet isn't necessarily out of character.

The immediate aftermath of Robinson's passing might not have been the best time for this discussion, though.

Eckersley certainly felt that way, firing off his first tweet in nearly two months to make his point clear.
