It’s one of those videos that just gets funnier the more you watch. Meanwhile, Twins right-hander Trevor May, an accomplished DJ on his off-days, is seeking the public’s help in his next tune:

Marlins pitcher Beau Wright asks:
Are Bonita fish big? — Beau Wright (@LeftbutWright35) May 30, 2013

Reno’s Zeke Spruill was thirsty and also had a question:
Why doesn’t water come in a can? — Ezekiel Spruill (@zekespruill) May 31, 2013
Through the magic of the Internets, I found that though some water is packaged in cans, it’s usually sold in clear plastic bottles so as to show it’s purity and clarity. Makes sense, we’d all like to know we’re not drinking swamp water.
Braves outfielder Cody Livesay prefers grammar and words like “knaidel” to the NBA Playoffs, and really, who can blame him?
Pirates catcher Tony Sanchez Tweeted earlier that he’d like someone to come wear his jersey on Thursday and take his place at the plate against a knuckleballer. He then offered up expert advice:

Darin Gorski first announces his addiction and then comforts himself on it:
Just casually had chipotle for lunch 5 days in a row and didn’t think twice about going again today. That may be a little excessive — Darin Gorski (@darin_gorski20) May 30, 2013

Lee was shipped along with right-handed starter Chris Archer from the Cubs to the Rays almost two years ago to the day, on Jan. 8, 2011 in the Matt Garza deal.
