Twitter Tuesday: 1/30-2/5

Twitter Tuesday is a new weekly feature to Pine Tar Press, in which I’ll review all things #Royals through the eyes of Twitter.  Snark and sarcasm are welcomed and valued just as much as baseball insight.  Keep them clean, and keep them coming.

 

Royals news was relatively light this week.  A couple items that lit up the #Royals Twitter world were Danny Duffy’s Michael Jordan-like return to Twitter, and the unveiling of the Royals 2013 slogan—“Come to play”.

Hey Look, It’s Danny Duffy…Again

I don’t really know what to make of Danny Duffy’s hot and cold relationship with Twitter.  He is a left-handed pitcher, which means he’s an odd duck, but there is no question he’s a good follow for Royals fans.  He speaks a language that I don’t really understand all the time (What the hell does ‘gnar’ mean?), but he interacts with the fans, and permanently endeared himself to the Royals faithful when he tweeted, “Bury me a Royal”.

Duffy is in a great situation this year.  There is absolutely no rush, and no reason to push him to return any faster than normal.  While James Shields and company are guiding the new Royals rotation, Duffy can focus on rehabbing and fine-tuning his pitching arsenal to make a bid for one of at least two empty rotation spots for 2014.  Like many Royals fans, I’ve been intrigued by what I’ve seen from Duffy.  I don’t necessarily see ‘ace’ material, but could eventually see him becoming a solid #2 or #3 starter, which could snugly fit him between Shields and someone like Wade Davis.

I thought this was a great picture, and I’m sure it illustrates a scene we’re all looking forward to seeing in the near future as Duffy continues on his comeback path from Tommy John surgery.  From what little we’ve seen of Duffy, we know he’s a tough competitor, a good teammate, and openly expresses how proud he is to be a Royal.

I love the enthusiasm, but WOW.  For the time being, let’s pump the brakes on the Cy Young talk, and hope for a fully healthy Danny Duffy returning to the diamond sometime this season.  On a side note, “glam axing”…I…I just…I don’t know where to begin.

Ok.  I did, but not because you told me to.  Wish some of my followers showed this kind of enthusiasm.  Tell you what, get me to 3,000 followers by midnight tonight, I’ll personally deliver Danny Duffy to your front porch tomorrow *.  Make it happen, people. 

 

* If by some miracle this actually happened, please keep in mind I’d have to commit a felony to hold up my end of the bargain and will totally name you as an accomplice.  But hey, I’d love the followers.

 

Kansas City Royals Baseball, “Come to Play”

Tweet6

 

 

Well, I think we can all appreciate this for what it isn’t—Our Time.

Tweet8

 

 

The sarcasm this slogan generated was predictable, but entertaining.  You can’t blame the fans.  “Our Time” was an absolute dumpster fire last year.  The Royals decision to go with the most harmless and vanilla slogan this year was a wise move.  In all reality, team slogans are worthless.  If your team loses, the slogan becomes a punch-line.  Win and no one remembers your corny slogan.

Like I said, there simply wasn’t much going on.  In closing, here’s a tweet that should help get the baseball juices flowing.

Until next week, Tweeps.

Go Royals!

About The Author

Thanks to Greg and the rest of the Pinetarpress.com crew for welcoming and allowing me to contribute to their stellar site. I jumped at the opportunity to become a contributor. Baseball, and more specifically, Kansas City Royals baseball is a deep rooted passion for me, and I look forward to being able to write about various Royals topics. When reading my material, keep in mind that I’m just a fan. I’m no insider, and I’m no seam-head. I appreciate advanced statistics, but don’t necessarily buy into all of them. I’m still “old school” in that I think you can still get a good evaluation through watching a player and whatever is offered on the back of his baseball card. I played small time college baseball in Kansas, and coached at the high school level. That is the extent of my baseball experience, but more appropriately those are the eyes through which I watch the game of baseball. I’m a KCK resident—a Dotte, if you will. I’m married and have a son who is itching to begin tee work, soft-toss, and a long-toss program (he’s 10 months old at the time of this writing). I’m active on Twitter. Follow me at @pyork_10. Go Royals!
