Glen Perkins comes through for Twins fan on Twitter

9 Comments

Most athletes are a bore to follow on Twitter. Their feeds usually consist of motivational quotes, inside jokes with other teammates on Twitter, and banal comments about a recently-completed game. Twins reliever Glen Perkins is not among them.

@AlexBerg22 asked Perkins if he could provide any assistance since Berg had been “screwed over” ordering tickets online. Perkins was more than happy to help.

Berg was pleased with his new seats:

A gentlemanly tip of the cap to you, Glen Perkins, for being one of baseball’s good guys.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
