Two days into the lockout, several players have turned their frustrations into humor as their profile pictures on Twitter display generic silhouettes of baseball players. Trevor Williams, a pitcher in the New York Mets organization, first changed his icon as a joke, and others followed his lead shortly after. Ian Happ, Lucas Giolito, Jose Ramirez, and Touki Toussaint are among players who have changed their profiles in response to the lockout.
