Hello, and welcome to the first edition of The Week in Red Sox Twitter, aka The Worst, a concept so simple there's no reason to explain it. To the tweets!
First, we start with the Hall of Fame announcements, about which the team was mostly quiet. New outfielder Chris Young was an exception. He had Griffey's spikes as a kid:
Griffey Jr...thank you for being great.also, for the sick kicks I wore in little league!! Congrats! #FavoritePlayer pic.twitter.com/cyufuzU7Zt— Chris Young (@CY24_7) January 7, 2016
But that was it. Maybe it was Netflix and chill?
Carson Smith Watches Making a Murderer
New middle relievers: They're just like us!
This 'Making a Murderer' show is unbelievable.— Carson Smith (@Carson_Smith39) January 6, 2016
He understands the legal system:
I don't want to speak to soon(only 4 episodes in) but from what I've watched, how in the world does anyone find Steven Avery guilty.— Carson Smith (@Carson_Smith39) January 6, 2016
Just from watching the trial, the defense is owning the case. So much faulty evidence. (Actually 6 ep. in now, was 5 from previous tweet)— Carson Smith (@Carson_Smith39) January 6, 2016
He also appreciates your dedication to chaos:
I appreciate all the spoilers, keep em coming.— Carson Smith (@Carson_Smith39) January 6, 2016
And is just as worn out with the whole thing as you are:
Is there any reason to watch episode 9 & 10? #makingamurderer— Carson Smith (@Carson_Smith39) January 7, 2016
I like this guy. (And yes, you do.)
Other Guys I Like Include Mookie Betts, Who Wants to Kill a Moose
Mookie Betts is as good at Twitter as he is at baseball, which is the only way to explain this random gem on the day after New Year's:
All i want to do is go moose hunting. Anybody kno somebody that can help me out?— mookiebetts (@mookiebetts) January 2, 2016
You've come to the right person, Mookie. I know how to the use the Internet, and the Internet says you -- yes you -- can get a permit to hunt moose as close as Vermont. This year's Moose Lottery is over, but you can apply as a nonresident next year for $25. We could finally win something!
Grammin': Mr. and Mrs. Ross Jr. Go to India
Pay special attention to the route below:
I'm pretty committed to weirdness, but even I can't make up "Lex+Chi+Munich=India. "it's sort of blowing my mind.
Anyhow maybe they understand something I don't:
It's been an eventful past 3days here in India! From traveling to serving! #GodIsGood— robbie ross (@Ross_108) January 7, 2016
