Ozzie Guillen couldn’t stay away from Twitter

Ozzie Guillen quit Twitter in May, explaining his decision in typical Ozzie fashion:

Yeah, I hate Twitter. Everybody following me can [expletive] his pants. You can quote me on that one. Don’t follow me anymore. Twitter is a stupid thing. I never make money out of that. When you speak Spanish, you speak Spanish. When you speak English, you don’t know how to spell “English.” Get a real job, get a life. I don’t make money out of that. I’m done.

And yet yesterday he unretired from Twitter, telling his 250,000 followers “iam. baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack” (that’s a direct quote) before posting another 10 tweets in the next 12 hours. During his Twitter break Guillen seems to have developed a fondness for periods. For instance, here’s his Twitter analysis of the Democratic National Convention last night:

And here’s a later tweet about golfing:

I’m not sure how long Ozzie will stick with Twitter this time around, but it’s good to have him back.

(Incidentally, “everybody following me can [expletive] his pants” is something everyone on Twitter should be forced to tweet at least once per day, as sort of a mantra.)

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
