Hit The Deck! Baseball’s tweeps buzzing about goldfish, a robotarm, Canseco’s marriage proposal and no cookies after a drug test
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.
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!
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.
>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.)
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
» Disco is doing unbelievably awesome today. Currently snoozing. Here are a few pics from today- 1st, the elbow stitches: http://t.co/yyQVjGM
» End result: broken toilet seat, shower curtain collapse mid rinse, entire bathroom unintentionally hosed dwn, leg wound got wet, as did I.
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…
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
>> Leila will you marry me please
>> I actually thought I was going to marry leila .what an idiot I am
