The World Today

Who needs reoprters anymore? As we all hang by a thread to the latest updates from the blogosphere, its none other than Jimmy Rollins himself (@JimmyRollins11) who breaks the news  that he's got a grade 2 calf strain and is headed to the DL until September. So much for my job, reporters, tweeters, and anyone else who wants to get up to the second information. Directly from the horses mouth, J Roll breaks it down for what we have looking forward to. As an elder statesmen, it doesn't make me too comfortable to hear that he's got a bad wheel. The only solice is that he can rest and recoup the rest of his body to get ready for the stretch run (is there technically a stretch run if we clinch before opening kickoff of the Eagles?) and post season.

Now is when we really need Polly to have a twitter acconnt...

Social Media King

The Reds have @DatDudeBP and the Marlins have @LoMoMarlins. That is all well and good for them, but since Twitter exploded the Phillies have put the Kabash on those in the organization using Twitter as a forum of interaction with the fans. Too bad that policy doesn't seem to effect those 'gradfathered' into the rule, that is having a preestablished twitter following. Enter @HunterPence9

There have been so many good nuggets of knowledge that HP3 have dropped on the Philly faithful. From his #letsgoeat to the spraypainted cleats, and finally the donut on the bat, it seems like the man can genuinely do nothing wrong. And to top it all off, he wants you to enjoy in his successes too. There has never been a Phils player to bring you as personal a journey as Hunter has, and we've known most of these guys for over a year. In the span of a few short days, @HunterPence9 has given us a glimpse inside the Philies lifestyle and lockerroom that we have been waiting for. Sure @mikestutes opened the door, but @HunterPence9 surely let the floodgates loose with his intimate and personal tweets to the city of Philadelphia. At this point, there is nothing that Hunter could do to turn us off. He has the key to our city. Just keep protecting the Big Piece (batting over .400 since HP3 has been here) and getting your own, and you will become a legend.

If it isn't obvious yet, go follow @HunterPence9 @mikestutes and @vanimal_49

Update: He changed his name. @HunterPence3
