In this edition of “This Week in Rays’ Twitter” we have Call of Duty, golf, college football, cake and a baby on the way, among other things.
I’ll start with Reid Brignac (@reidbrignac) since he reached a Twitter milestone this week and took the opportunity to thank his followers.
It was through Twitter that I learned that Briggy’s father had neck surgery on Wednesday. I also learned from Brignac’s timeline that his father is doing well post-op. Best wishes go out to the Brignac family as Reid’s father recovers!Brignac wasn’t the only Rays player who spent some time on the golf course this week.
But my jealousy didn’t stop me from recommending a few things for him to do while he’s in good ol’ T-Town. I resisted the urge to tweet “Take me with you!” (I will be walking at Light the Night on Saturday. I sincerely hope my Seminoles will be beating the Hurricanes while I help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society beat cancer.)
He also called one fan’s Johnny Damon birthday cake “stellar.” I’m not trying to split long hairs (okay, maybe I am) but why would you use a photo of Johnny in his Red Sox days???
Fuld also reminded us today that professional baseball is a family.
For those of you who are not familiar with the story, Ramos, a catcher for the Nationals, was kidnapped in Venezuela. You can keep up with the latest information on the case over at Win For Teddy.
And finally, Tampa Bay prospect and Arizona Fall League Rising Star Mikie Mahtook (@MikieMahtook8) remembered our nation’s veterans.
