This Tweet in Baseball: Your Weekly Update on the Sport's Twits

| | Comments (15)

With deference to the late, great Mel Allen and the good people at Eater.com, we present the inaugural edition of This Tweet in Baseball, your weekly rundown of all our favorite players, managers, gadabouts, and cads around the Baseballtweetosphere:

Our favorite steroid truther brags about being in demand and misuses an apostrophe like it was a fly ball and the sentence was his head:


Former Seton Hall Pirate Jason Grilli is obviously having trouble accessing his favorite adult websites and needs some tech support, STAT:


Professional fashionista and bumbling brotard Nick Swisher engages his followers with deep, thoughtful questions:


Utility man Mark Teahen, however, objects to Nick's assumption:


Oft-opinionated relief pitcher C.J. Wilson took his entourage out for a fancy night on the town:


And what would a weekly rundown in the Twittersphere be without our old, old friend Tommy Lasorda recklessly dropping a famous dead guy's name:


Thoughts? Feedback? Any idears of other baseball folks we should be following on Twitter? Let us know.

Worse than dropping a famous person's name, dropping a famous dead person's name.

Here's a list of MLB players on twitter. Jamie Moyer? Really?

Jason Grilli for Twitter background of the year.

Worse than dropping a famous dead person's name? Blatant blog pimpage, like I'm doing here:

@Chief, pimpin' ain't easy.

Ha! This is a great idea, Rob.

YES ROB ITS A FINE IDEA

Also, John Baker has a a cool screen name and recently got SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOT SHOTS VACCINAAAAATIONS

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that this was all DJ NJ Panick's idea. Whoops.

Oh pshaw. Anything I can do to help.

/only child who demands attention and praise

I came up with the name.

AND MY IDEA WAS TO USE THE... ok, I had nothing to do with this.

They should all follow Grilli's example and make a poor attempt at a The Dugout-style pun.

Excellent new feature!
