We’re nine days and 33 tweets into the Dustin Pedroia
Twitter experience, and it’s been interesting to say the least. Pedroia’s gone
from Twitter unfamiliarity to picture nominations to grammar lessons and now his current
obsession, Bigfoot - all in the name of tweeting to fans, family and those looking for the mythical yeti.
In case you were wondering Pedrioa's Twitter handle is @15Lasershow, and I thought I'd share a few gems (tweets) from the Red Sox second baseman's account. (Note: Getta load of DP's Twitter picture, classic)
Getting frustrated with finding bigfoot show. Mix in some evidence please. Uncle on town hall meetings and squatchy areas.

My bad I knew I should have switched my major from raking to English.

Can't wait to grind through another finding bigfoot episode tonight. Tow...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The hope was that Clay Buchholz would pitch two innings in his spring training debut on Saturday. He didn’t accomplish that feat, but all was not lost in the right-hander’s effort.
Buchholz was lifted in the second inning after throwing 40 pitches, 22 of which were strikes. He had to battle on a number of occasions, and he gave up a hit and walked two batters, so it was far from...
Jon Lester has been nothing short of magnificent so far this spring training. He has started 2 games and has a 2-0 record. In his most recent outing, Friday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates he pitched 3 scoreless innings, had 2 strikeouts, one walk and one hit. Lester increased his workload since his first start, this time throwing 46 pitches, 28 of them for strikes. Lester said...
Despite the headline, it really isn't breaking news. Allen Webster is a damn good prospect. Sadly, not everyone knew that heading into spring training 2013.
From Pete Abraham of Boston.com:
"Webster in two appearances this spring: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K. He has been 95-99 with his four-seam fastball and shown an an excellent changeup along with a two-seam...
Mike Napoli aced every test slapped on his desk on Friday night.
Napoli, making his spring training debut for the Red Sox, made a few plays in the field, contributed an RBI single to kick off Boston’s scoring and left no doubt that he’s healthy with Opening Day exactly one month away.
Napoli was diagnosed with a hip condition known as avascular necrosis during the offseason,...
“The Flyin’ Hawaiian” should bring much needed energy to the top of the Red Sox lineup
The Red Sox had a ready-made replacement for former right fielder J.D. Drew as his contract expired after the 2011 season in Josh Reddick. Unfortunately the Sox had to use Reddick as a chip to acquire reliever Andrew Bailey. That left the Sox with a gaping hole in right field for the...
Will Middlebrooks‘ injury dominated the headlines following Wednesday’s game against the Orioles, but he wasn’t the only member of the Red Sox who came away from the spring training contest a little banged up.
Jonny Gomes banged into the outfield fence and cut his knee, which required three stitches, according to manager John Farrell. The minor injury presumably occurred when...
Mike Lowell grew up in Miami, helped the Marlins win a World Series and knows all too well about the franchise's tradition of humble payrolls and modest crowds.
Back in uniform this week as a special instructor, Lowell says the team can win again and win back fans, but it will take time. And he sympathizes with South Floridians angry the Marlins this season will be near baseball...
Mike Napoli made his Boston Red Sox spring training debut on Friday night and by all accounts things went fine.
It was actually pretty funny that he was tested in every way possible during the first inning. Almost like it was scripted.
Napoli was tested by the Pittsburgh Pirates first batter of the game, Darren Ford, who pushed a bunt down the line. Napoli was able to scoop...
Tonight the Boston Red Sox will host a split-squad from the Pittsburgh Pirates at JetBlue Park at Fenway South. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
The game will be televised in the Red Sox television market on NESN. You can also listen to the game on WEEI in the New England area. If you have the MLB At-Bat app, you can listen to the game on there or if you got an RSN Membership...
