If you’re not already following HardballTalk on Twitter you’re missing out, because even celebrities like Tom Arnold use our Twitter feed to keep up to date on baseball news.
For example, when the Padres traded reliever Ernesto Frieri to the Angels last night Arnold retweeted us and added in a joke about one of the world’s most annoying celebrity chefs:
“Redneck chef” is, of course, Guy Fieri. Also, hi Tom! Loved you in True Lies.

Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving starter Jaime Garcia to the bullpen. If they go that route, Sam Gaviglio would start in Garcia’s place on Sunday against the Angels.
Garcia, 31, has struggled to a 6.16 ERA with a 56/31 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season. Gaviglio, meanwhile, has a 3.75 ERA with 35 striekouts and 11 walks in 36 innings across six starts and two relief appearances for the Jays this year.
Garcia inked a one-year, $10 million contract with the Jays in February. The deal includes a club option for the 2019 season worth $10 million with a $2 million buyout.
