In addition to our tweeps usual rantings, ravings and humor, we have stories about a fish, an inside look at Tommy John surgery and Jose’s love life.

A Goldfish Named Squints:

A ballplayer never knows what he may find in his hotel room. Sometimes, you may even need a lawyer or teammates who can help with a quick getaway.

2Morrow23 Brandon Morrow: @RickyRo24 @jparencibia9 what did you name your goldfish? #beastmodefish http://t.co/iCcwRjq

Let's name him!

 

jparencibia9 jp arencibia: you know you are a stud when ur room comes with a gold fish! #verypro

2Morrow23 Brandon Morrow: Done! “@BlueJayHip: @2Morrow23 @RickyRo24 @jparencibia9 Name it Squints! #CecIl@CEC0208

CEC0208 Brett Cecil: wow…I’d put a lid on that bowl just in case he feels like jumping out…like those crazy fish on the news!

2Morrow23 Brandon Morrow: RIP Squints :( The lifespan of a goldfish must be about 3 hours @RickyRo24 @jparencibia9 @CEC0208

RIP Squints

jparencibia9 jp arencibia: did u know ur not suppose to take it out and pet it?? #RIPsquints

2Morrow23 Brandon Morrow: I just loved it too much, it was like a scene from of mice and men, I didn’t know my own strength! http://t.co/2rR8SUI

jparencibia9 jp arencibia: maybe his heart stopped and will come back to life later? #hangover2

 

The Robotarm:

Chris Hayes, a RHP for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League, recently had Tommy John surgery. Chris and his wife shared the experience with us, including a very graphic surgery photo.

discohayes Chris Hayes: Do they sell multiple-ply moist wipes? The ole trusty right hand is gonna be out of commission pretty soon here. #preparation

>Ready to go http://t.co/y1L7xXG

Mrs. DiscoHayes: > Mrs.Disco here taking over until Chris is able to tweet left handed. If tweeting is 1/2 as successful as wiping, he’ll be back in no time.

> Attempting to eat lunch… and keep it down… while I watch Chris’s elbow repair.

> My honey’s perfect elbow. Warning it’s a graphic photo. http://t.co/iZwgsd7 (DEAN’S NOTE: She’s not lying.)

Mrs. DiscoHayes + RobotArm

>: @michael_schlact here’s the #RoboArm he’s getting after Tommy Juan. Our nephews are so excited http://t.co/a94LcIA

Hello, Mr. Roboto

And he did miraculously well at his 1st day of PT- 158 degrees of elbow extension! Says he’s 0 on a 0-10 pain scale http://t.co/2A67hvo

As promised, @discohayes#robotarm http://t.co/ethY60r

» Disco is doing unbelievably awesome today. Currently snoozing. Here are a few pics from today- 1st, the elbow stitches: http://t.co/yyQVjGM

» 1st attempt at man-bathing my #robotarm husband = #fail

The Danger of Great Drugs

» End result: broken toilet seat, shower curtain collapse mid rinse, entire bathroom unintentionally hosed dwn, leg wound got wet, as did I.

» here’s my nominee for the #SchlactTwitPoll. U think the mani/pedi will wake him up? #robotarm @michael_schlact @Palo50http://t.co/VfUjKI8

 

The Drug Test:

While one minor league tweep is on painkillers getting “made-up” by his sneaky wife, another tweep got tested….

TheGarfoose Dirk Hayhurst

>> During Last night’s post game blood test (yes, they do that now) I asked the administers if their needles were certified “green”? (1/2)

>> Confused, they said no. Me: “Shame… I care about the environment, I always reuse, recycle, and repurpose my needles.” They backed away…

>> Never mind being tired and dehydrated when giving blood post game… there were no free cookies. Now that’s just wrong, MLB, just wrong.

>> .@RyNReid Yes fellow teammate, twitter noob, and competitive dance partner Ryan Reid, that post game drug test WAS a pain…

Love!

I’ll let this speak for itself. Schlact pretty much sums it up.

JoseCanseco Jose Canseco: I made a total fool of my self for someone who never even cared about me .what an idiot I am

>> Love makes fools out of all of us especially me

>> Lady gaga was a joke leila is for real
