I recently joined Twitter, not really for the social networking of it, but for baseball news. Awhile back, Bartlett was injured during a game and I wasn’t getting information quick enough and wished I had Twitter. I signed up that night and it’s been great. I mostly follow Rays players and a Rays blog and the official Rays Twitter account. It’s been so informative and all in one place and I’ve just added it to my morning reading and check it throughout the day and during games.
I was pleased to read this morning that our closer, Rafael Soriano, was named to the Allstar team. Everyone was surprised he hadn’t made it originally, and Mariano Rivera just pulled out, so Soriano is in. Yay! Congrats, Soriano. Did you break a smile?
Carl Crawford twittered, asking what’s good today. So I replied, ‘What’s good? How bout Soriano joining you in Anaheim?’ I got on Twitter this afternoon to find that Crawford had replied to my reply! He said, ‘Happy he is on the team, he’s deserving’. I began giggling like a school girl hahaha!! He replied to me!! Wow!!
Crawford is not only an incredible player, he’s just such a down to earth guy. And I’m not talking about twitter, he just seems that way in all his interviews. And it’s just awesome that he replied to me haha!!
It’s going to kill me if he decideds to wear pinstripes since he’s a free agent. I’ll still be a fan of his, I just hope maybe he’ll stay with the Rays.
