While there was plenty of coverage around those who made the All-Star team and the game itself, here’s a peek inside how some of our favorite non-All-Star tweeps handled the time off.

A Mid-Summer Vacation:

Ballplayers’ mini-vacations rock! Or do they?

 

TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) Dirk Hayhurst here, reminding you to party responsibly this all star break. There is no point in being an all-star if you can’t remember it.

 

Peteypipes (Bryan Petersen) I’m like 4 hours into my all star break and bored outta my mind

 

GrillCheese49 (Jason Grilli) It is 5 O’clock somewhere!!!

 

LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) No need to worry. I tan nude RT @aplinckTX LoMo if u want sun, u should come 2 TX. 100 degrees all week…. Just watch out 4 the tan lines

 

TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) When asked if I would go to the ASG as an alt, I said no; I’d be to busy coating myself in Cheeto dust and fresh bottle caps in my basement

 

JustinDeFratus so hungry. but i have dedicated my first day of the all star break to the couch and i honestly cant see myself moving.

 

MarkLamm44 Mark Lamm Playing “Can Slam” with the boys tonight… All you need is two tall laundry bins, a frisbee, and a good time. #SundayFunday

 

GrillCheese49 (Jason Grilli) Never thought All Star break could feel this great! Already letting my mind and body chill for a few days.

 

dannyvalencia19  Miami….where the wild things are!

 

LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) Depends, does ur mom make chocalate chip pancakes? RT @22brob LoMo What r the chances of us having a sleepover during the all star break?

  

JGuthrie46 (Jeremy Guthrie) Morning ritual. Fresh Prince of Bel Air. http://t.co/pxWeeUi

 

  toriihunter48 On my way toDallas for my 4 days off. Going relax and let my body heal. I’malso going to lay out bucket naked in the sun. Lol…..

» [Three days later.] At my sons 7 on 7 football tournament at Texas A&M. It’s so hot it feels like the devil is sitting in my lap. They better win this thing!!!!

 

blawrie13 (Brett Lawrie) Played some amazing ping pong today against some good plAyer’s , very high intensity , loved it http://t.co/ipP9Twu

LoMoMarlins Logan Morrison Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy (Hey, what up girl?) Put my glasses on, I’m out the door – I’m gonna hit this city (Let’s go)

» I’m bout to heat this bi+€h up quicker than a junkies spoon!

 

Brad_Brach It’s way too early to be heading to the airport…brutal! I thought it was supposed to be a good thing to have an all star break!!

 

GrillCheese49 (Jason Grilli) Kicking the afternoon off right. 90 min massage. Treatment for the power of Cheese! 2nd half push!

 

Maholm28 (paul maholm) Off to the course. Only gonna be about 97 today. Hot and humid.

 

TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) http://yfrog.com/kjhl2zj flight delayed, need something to keep me b…. nevermind, I’m fine.

 

Decker6 (Cody Decker) They say “the early bird gets the worm”…… Okay, enjoy that…. I’m gonna sleep in and have an omelet.

LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) If that condo stinks like fish when we get back….

 

 

 

Home Run Derby

If you thought all our tweeps would be into the HRD, think again. @LoMoMarlins gets the edge here over @JGuthrie46 – only because you can feel his pain.

 JGuthrie46 (Jeremy Guthrie) For the record: Me enjoying a #homerunderby is like a person on a diet having fun watching people crush food at Golden Corral.

» I’ll be tweeting live updates during the #bachelorette in case you are watching #homerunderby

» ANOTHER cancelled cocktail party by Ashley, ABC must love her for making this cheapest #bachelorette ever.

 

B__McCarthy (Brandon McCarthy) I wonder what that guy feels worse about- tearing the ball away from that girl, or his big stupid goatee.

» 4 those who care, Im sitting alone in a bar watching the #HRDerby, crying & Tweeting. The waitress keeps asking “r u sure everythings ok?”

» Waitress asked what I do 4 work. Told her I played 4 the Marlins. Now SHE’s sitting at MY table crying & Tweeting. #FAIL

One Hundred and Forty Characters (or less):

What can I say? One-liners are what Twitter is all about.  Winner: @TheGarfoose on Roger Clemens.

 

TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) When I see Cleveland sports team logos, I think of road salt, gray skys, brown water, rusty cars, and let downs. #hometeampride.

 

LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) Bathroom I just used was all out of TP. Used a Pledge Multi Surface wipe. Immediately regret that decision…

ChrisPerez54 Just deleted “Bossy” by #Kelis from my I-tunes, what was I thinking when I bought that one?

dannyvalencia19  @ChrisPerez54 I remember you were blasting Barbara Streisand and Celine dion back in 05 and singing to it on the way to work outs at 515am

RickyRo24 (Ricky Romero) Who’s got the better butt??? Lmao!!!! I think I got this one… What u think @OfficialRima ??? http://t.co/b1HTpCZ

 

JohnAxford PS – Isn’t every tweet a live tweet? #livetweetingconfusionallupinmyface

 

LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) Hell naw. I’d Tweet 911 RT @xochristinaxo LoMo Cubs/Pirates stared at an ailing umpire.. would u just stare when a umpire is down & in pain?

>> Scotch tape it back up & see if you can return it RT @AustinJankowiak opened some 2011 baseball cards. First card I see: Logan Morrison.

 TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) http://yfrog.com/khjnjouj our plane is smoking…but we’re still getting on. 

» The fog eminating from the floor of the plane that is obscuring your feet is “completely normal.”

» If this plane explodes, crashes, or a combination thereof; its been fun. I’ll see you in the great Garfoose grove in the sky.

» http://yfrog.com/kkw15nj I’ve seen a lot of ridiculous things in skymall mgazine, but this takes the cake…:)
