Jose Bautista’s Most Outrageous Follows

As you may or may not know, Joey Bautista follows over 147,000 people on Twitter. Following someone on Twitter usually means that you are interested in what they have to say. I hope for Joey’s sake that this is not the case for his account. Here are some of Bautista’s best follows of the last couple weeks:

This one makes a bit of sense seeing as baseball “his life.” You’d think a true baseball fan would be wearing a baseball shirsey in his header photo. He’s also quite the friendly lad, offering up his phone number for all of those who have yet to meet Mr. Blow-Me.

Random Lad Named Jason “Recommends” Something

So, today the three of us were at the Baseball Prospectus event at Nationals Park (Jordan and Jake are currently traveling towards Akron, Ohio, with the goal to get to Clinton, Iowa, because they are crazy people), and we basked in the glory of Mike Mason Milhouse Malcolm Mark Ferrin, Jason Cole, Joe Hamrahi, a war-torn Jay Jaffe, Zach Mortimer, and other BP writers and associates. Internet friends came out in force for the event,  which also featured incredibly handsome Nationals Front Office members, and others. Oh wait I forgot someone who was there….. Oh yeah, the one shining star of Baseball Prospectus the entire internet, Jason Parks. We ended up talking with Parks, and for some dumb reason he checked out the blawg, and for reasons we still are not sure of, liked it.

Our Twitter following is surging and we are getting our largest number of page views for a day that does not involve Chris Davis wearing no shirt. Praise be unto you all.

Happy Darvish Day ! (Start #11)

What?

Last week, Yu Darvish had arguably his worst start of the year, giving up one run and striking out six over 6 innings against Oakland. Today, he’ll be in Arizona facing the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of a particularly strange double-header.

Andrew Meyer Intro

Aside from one article written months ago by the Paretzky, every single piece of content on this blog was produced by either myself or Jordan. That’s about to change. We’d like to welcome a dear friend, Andrew Meyer to the CFB squad.

Everyone in this world has problems, it just so happens that Andrew has more than all of us combined. The dude don’t sleep, he’s addicted to buying hats, and he’s a very over-aggressive person. If you listen to the Prodcast you know him all too well. But he can kinda write and he’s certainly our flavor. He won’t write everyday, but when he does we can promise that it will be poignant, tear-jerking, and over the line.

Follow Andrew @dogswithhats

Have a good weekend.

Why Jose Bautista Followed Us On Twitter

Jose Antonio Bautista is many things. He is a superstar right fielder for the Blue Toronto Jays. He, like many other major leaguers, hails from Santo Domingo in the DR. He is a well dressed son-of-a-gun. One thing Jose Bautista is not however, is a close personal friend of either Jordan or myself. In fact, the CFB twitter didn’t even follow JoeyBats19 until we realized yesterday afternoon that

To be fair, it probably doesn’t mean all that much. And he probably doesn’t actually read our stuff. But is Jose Bautista following you on twitter? Probably not. Here is a list of possible reasons for Jose to follow our Twitter:
