Minoring in Twitter: TinCaps get Rickrolled, Minor Leaguer A-Rod eats Chipotle

Justin Timberlake, closet Memphis Redbirds fan? It could be. Upon hearing he and late night host Jimmy Fallon were being shown on the videoboard at Memphis’ AutoZone Park, the man himself replied:

So you’re saying Chipotle isn’t an option?

In an effort to drum up Mascot Mania support for Gigante, the San Jose Giants offered one lucky fan a chance to throw out a first pitch at a game this week. Giants prospect Clayton Blackburn (who has made 18 starts for San Jose this season) had a little fun with his team:

Jason King is back and rounding up a group to party at Chipotle:

Worth pointing out the @Chipotle Twitter handle is actually some dude named Chip.

Then there’s Adam Abraham of Akron who is attempting to add to his Spring Training weight of 228:

Dallas Beeler of Tennessee isn’t blind. He sees what’s going on with those burrito portions:
