Every athlete needs to be on Twitter. You learn more about them and their sport and the world they inhabit from some random tweets than you do in any sort of formal interview. Ask Marshawn Lynch.
Or ask Brett Anderson, who just gave me my chuckle of the day:

The link in that tweet reveals that Anderson’s number will be 35. Bob Welch wore that, so that’s some pretty good company. Beyond him it was mostly journeymen and kids. Anderson wore 30 and 49 at his previous stops in Colorado and Oakland.
The Dodgers are, no doubt, saving those in case they need to retire them in honor of Jerry Sands and Carlos Marmol.
