Walkoff Walk runs an excellent weekly feature called “This Tweet in Baseball” in which the week’s finest real ballplayer tweets are collected. The latest is up today. Sadly, it was posted before new Twitter user Matt Holliday decided to tweet thusly:
“Big fan of the new Creed album, helps me get through long bike workout”
Nine minutes later:
“Save it all you creed haters, I’m sure your iPod is filled with perfection. Let me know what’s cool”
I feel bad for Holliday. I mean, sure, Creed sucks and there’s no excuse for it, but all of the responses he’s about to get from the indie music enthusiasts are going to be way more insufferable than “Human Clay” is. And that’s saying something.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
