Minoring in Twitter: Yelich and Taylor Swift?
By Danny Wild
I only discovered Josh Satin’s eyebrows earlier this week — they are easily the biggest eyebrows in baseball, perhaps in sports (except for maybe Anthony Davis, but he only has one). And so when Zack Wheeler tweeted a photo of his teammates on a Las Vegas road trip, I instantly recognized those brows in the second seat:

I like how they’ve decorated — blank walls, fishing pole.
And on the subject of Matthew Shepherd, he Tweeted this shot of Class A Fort Wayne’s patriotic uniforms:

I’m not sure if these were a tribute to Captain America, the military, or the Puerto Rican flag. Either way:
Brewers prospect Hunter Morris may soon get to be living the life of a big leaguer, but for now, he’s stuck in mediocre Minor League hotels that don’t have TV:
Bad weather, can’t get out of the hotel, and then to top it off the cable goes out.. Best off day ever

But Hanley Statia was a good teammate and offered up his room for shared viewing of… Duck Dynasty? Game of Thrones? MLB Network?
@HunterMorris15 looks like your struggling there buddy come by room 604

Tucson’s Cody Decker needs no introduction:
Remember that Russell Crowe Robin Hood movie? Ironically, it stole from the poor movie watcher and gave to the rich studio ($12 at a time).

Hey guy. Nice job on the whole getting-hitched plan. Bacon for everyone. (paraphrase of Lehigh Valley’s Cody Asche);
Guys are now 3-0 this year proposing while the Pigs play. I am sure there is some coincidence. Congrats to whomever you are guy.

I don’t really know what Trevor Bauer is referring to, but it sounds like he’s carrying a lot of lunch meat?
Secured a U-haul for the ride to lunch today. Wish it had an iPod hookup so I could blast ridin dirty with the windows down. #GangsterRide

That thing would destroy my Challenger — 662 horsepower, 200 mph, SVT painted forged aluminum wheels. The Cobra starts at $55,000, which is pennies for a guy who received a $1.5 million signing bonus.
