Twitter Tuesday...September 29, 2009

This morning I woke up and an age-old question was answered for me. If a tree falls in your backyard and no one is awake to hear it...does it make a sound? The answer? I still have no idea since, well...I was sleeping. But I know that it takes out part of a fence and completely rips your internet and phoneline off your house.

And with that...here's Twitter Tuesday.

Still don't know what Twitter Tuesday is? Don't waste Google's time...click the link.




If you've followed the Chatter at all...you know that one of my favorite MLB Tweeters is Jason Grilli. Well, in an effort to pump up his teammates (I'm guessing), my man GrillCheese49 broke out the Big Book o' Quotes and dropped some inspiration.

Here's Grilli's best from the past week.

"Having lots of money while not having inner peace is like dying of thirst while bathing in the ocean"- Yogananda

"Im a great believer in luck, the harder I work the luckier I get." -T. Jefferson

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall" -Confucius

“It takes less time 2 do things right than 2 explain why you did it wrong.”- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Success always comes when preparation meets opportunity” – Henry Hartman

“Nearly everything you do is of no importance, but it is important that you do it” - Mahatma Gandhi




Winning the National League East is certainly not a lock for the Phillies since the Braves are in the midst of a seven game win streak. One thing that we all can agree on...no one is happy with Philadelphia closer Brad Lidge this season.

ACPressSusan_L: The Phillies haven't clinched because of Brad Lidge not being on top form, does that sound right?

JxJSPORTS: Brad Lidge - 1st NL pitcher with at least 11 blown saves in a season since '98 He was 41-for-41 in save opps last yr.

SI_JonHeyman: did brad lidge make a deal with the devil for that perfect 2008? how would such a nice guy even know the devil?

chelseacoyle26: Praise the Lord! RT @espn: Philadelphia Phillies plan to use other options at closer besides Brad Lidge

underthebridge1: Fact, only Brad Lidge could blow a save in a non-save situation.

howaboutafresca: Lucky for the Cowboys, the Panthers Jake Delhomme is the Brad Lidge of NFL quarterbacks...

one_mike1: Johnthan Broxton Is Pure Garbage He Needs To Stop Takin Pitchin Lessons From Brad Lidge

The700Level: So it's not that Brad Lidge sucks at closing. He just sucks at pitching in general.



It was just a matter of time before I brought up Joe Posnanski. If you're not familar with Joe...he's had a pretty decent last couple of months. First, he announced he was becoming a full-time senior writer with a little outlet called Sports Illustrated, then...he released his most recent book (The Machine: The Story of the 1975 Cincinnati Reds) to good reviews. Now...I'm suggesting you follow him.


If only his beloved Royals had that good of a summer.

Have someone you think everyone should follow? Perhaps you yourself have read some interesting tweets in the past week…drop me a line or leave a comment below. See you next Tuesday!


BallHype: hype it up!
