One Fan's favorite Twitter Follows

As a public service to you readers here at the FanDome, it felt appropriate to give you a list of this Fan's favorite Twitter follows. Naturally, the best Twitter follows are those that also follow you back. After all, it is hard to have a one way conversation.  There are others worth following like baseball beat reporters and players if you like that sort of thing. But they never follow anyone besides themselves. So you can go find those on your own.

Many of this list are smart, passionate baseball fans. Some write for other sites and some are just fans. But everyone on this list has been a joy to converse with, clown around with and just generally great to hang out with from time to time on Twitter. Some may be sarcastic and snarky. Others are always classy. But each is worth you following them too. So here is the list not in any order of preference. Enjoy.

Hey, William! James Edward Schuck here!

Loved your article on Schofield! Keep it up!

I need to ask:

I am completely puzzled by the overall tenor of Yankees fans about their negativity about Ichiro, who did everything and then some when he put on the pinstripes! He earned a re-sign and maybe even a chance to play RF regularly, yet many bloggers (I won't name names) are totally down on him! What's up with that?

And, just for the record, if the Yankees were the Evil Empire, Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp and Fox are the devil incarnate. It will be difficult for me to watch YES knowing that I am in some supporting that bunch. I may have to limit my Yankees pleasure to John and Susan going forward.

PS: if Swisher signs with the Red Sux, I will hate him forever and forget he ever played for the Yankees

William Tasker - Caribou, ME said...

Hi James,

It is fashionable to look at Ichiro's stats for 2011 and the Seattle half of 2012 and say from a stat standpoint that he is finished. But he did show extended life with the Yankees down the stretch. It would be great to have him back IF he did not bunt with men on base.

As for the News Corp thing...well...when there is nothing good to say, this writer will keep his mouth shut.

Can't agree on Swisher. He is free to sign with who will pay him. It would be an ouchie though.
