Hit The Deck: All-Star break edition! Baseball’s tweeps go fishing, eat Cheetos and cry during the Home Run Derby
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!!!
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.
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!
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!!!!
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.
Decker6 (Cody Decker) They say “the early bird gets the worm”…… Okay, enjoy that…. I’m gonna sleep in and have an omelet.
thad_weber What to do inToledo with 3 days off…?
Marlins Gone Fishing?
Isn’t this like eating your own?
Peteypipes (Bryan Petersen) Here fishy fishy fishy, charrrrk
»Hmmmm I wonder what the captain is doing right now
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.
» 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.
LoMoMarlins (Logan Morrison) Bathroom I just used was all out of TP. Used a Pledge Multi Surface wipe. Immediately regret that decision…
TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst) Well, I guess Clemen’s stat line will include another no decision…
PeterMoylan Heading to the ESPYs, fired up for the red carpet, drank to much water gotta pee already.
» Full disclosure: Not my kid. Found him at a Coffee Bean. His name is Carlos…
» Does this thing have a handle?? http://moby.to/bwftz7
>> Scotch tape it back up & see if you can return it RT @AustinJankowiak opened some 2011 baseball cards. First card I see: Logan Morrison.
Even the ASB couldn’t stop our tweeps from ranting. Winner: Even though it was late, @Decker6 ripping on @KimKardashian reaction to Casey Anthony verdict.
nickgreen20 Mr TSA man, thank you for breaking my zipper on my backpack. I will fill out this claim form now in hopes of receiving an answer by Xmas.
ChrisPerez54 Is there a worse industry inAmerica than the airline industry? After you buy the tix, they own your soul.
» 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…:)
Decker6 (Cody Decker) You know…… Heath Bell might be faster than me….. Thy can’t be good…
dannyvalencia19 My parents insist on driving below the speed limit for “precautionary reasons”. I find it absurd
