Twitter Tuesday...October 27, 2009

If you're a regular over at The Hall (and if you aren't...why not?), you saw the interview with Seth Swirsky, the owner of the "Buckner Ball". Sunday was the 23rd anniversary of that fateful night where a relatively routine grounder went under Billy Buck's mitt.

With that in mind...what is going to be the lasting memory of this year's World Series? Will the Phillies repeat? Will A-Rod continue to knock that monkey off his back? Only time will tell.

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

Much like last week's Chatter, this week's is, again...all about how players have been spending their free time so far in this young off season.

Well...MOST of them, that is,

Rdibs49 (Rob Dibble): Great time, U2 @ Rose Bowl! Hung with Trevor Hoffman and his beautiful wife!

DPEP56 (Jeremy Johnson): watching CSI on my new Flat Screen! Flatscreens and surround system definitely the way to go

APacBama (Adam Pavkovich): Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream all night tonight! Dang these rides are messin with my stomach. The haunted houses are freaking us out

73_MC (Seth McClung): Watching the tv show shocking acts of violence. Should we really be giving crazy people ideas like this?

NickSwisher (Nick Swisher): Yankees Win!!! We're not done yet! Still lots of work to do! World Series here we come!

After hearing the announcement that Mark McGwire will be joining the Cardinals coaching staff next season, my feelings were mixed. On one hand, I guess it is good that MLB is beginning to look past the "steroid era". On the other...what can McGwire teach people about hitting?

Suffice it to say, plenty of people had their own opinions.

smg1981: How will Mark McGwire coach baseball without talking about the past?

autographdude: Mark McGwire back in baseball as Cardinals hitting coach, good for LaRussa for bringing him back to the game

stevebattles32: is waiting to see if signing Mark McGwire as hitting coach will bring back Matt Holliday. If you didn't know Matt works out with big mac.

Jiyan59: Mark McGwire Batting coach. The folly of fools is deception. Is there anybody in America that can't see this as Mark's Hall of Fame Tour?

Machinegunka: Mark McGwire returning as Cardinals hitting coach?! Now that's the news of the day. Only if they could get Canseco as pitching coach....

Like most of you out there...I'm not a Reds fan. Frankly, I haven't given them much thought since about 1990. That being said, the gang over at Red Reporter make for a good follow. Their website is top notch, the tweets are concise and the analysis is spot on.

Oh, that and they agree with me about Barry Larkin's Hall of Fame candidacy. It's nice to share a common belief!

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!
