For the third time, Royals’ left-hander Danny Duffy has quit Twitter.

One troll said Duffy was “underachieving” and that he needs to go away, and another said he was “disappointed” in Duffy. On Tuesday, Duffy said he was quitting Twitter and his account was moved to private on Wednesday.

Fans saw the interactions and tried to let Duffy know they appreciated him and hoped he wouldn’t let the negative comments get to him.

Here is a sample of what Royals fans wrote to Duffy:

From covering the World Series to the World Cup, Pete has done a little bit of everything since joining The Star in 1997. He writes about baseball and has a quirky blog that augments The Star’s coverage of area teams.
