Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Cardinals players on Twitter

Twitter continues to be an interesting as well as expanding source of baseball news. Many minor leaguers are not only establishing a public presence there, but some have even been actively begging for fan followers in apparent good-natured popularity contest with their peers.

Earlier this season, we first learned of the promotion of St. Louis Cardinals number one prospect Shelby Miller from Palm Beach to Springfield via a tweet from the player himself.

The trend continues as Tuesday night, Joe Kelly received congratulations from other players in the organization for his yet-to-be announced move up to Springfield from Palm Beach.

As more and more players join Twitter, you may be interested in following them, too. Here is a list of Cardinals major and minor leaguers, though likely far from complete. Their Twitter handles are listed first. The active links for many of the player names will take you to their stats page at Baseball-Reference.com.

    Wednesday lineup: Theriot SS, Schumaker 2B, Pujols 1B, Holliday LF, Berkman RF, Rasmus CF, Molina C, Descalso 3B, Westbrook P.

    By the way, even though Matt Holliday still has his twitter account, he has not tweeted since February of 2010.

    I follow all of the current major leaguers, plus Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, and Jordan Swagerty. David Freese has become quite the tweeter and Shelby Miller as well. In fact, Shelby has made quite an impact with Cardinals fans on Twitter, he even once gave away tickets to a game in Springfield.

    I like the bench. Jay, Hamilton, Freese, Punto, Cruz.

  4. Kansasbirdman says:

    Anybody know how AP has been looking during BP?

  5. Leebo says:

    Not Jake’s finest hour.

  6. blingboy says:

    Rain and lightning headed for the stadium.

  7. JumboShrimp says:

    One of the mysteries of baseball is how a pitcher can stink in the first or second inning, then hit his stride and pitch well thereafter. Happens all the time.

  8. JumboShrimp says:

    Last game, Westbrook was great and earning his big bucks. Tonight, at home, he sucks. Hard to understand how the same guy can look so good and then so bad.

    Last night the Cards romped, tonight the Reds are clobbering us. Things even out.

  9. JumboShrimp says:

    Now the Cards are charging back. Let us smite the Dustyes.

  10. Kansasbirdman says:

    This has been a great game, even before we tied it up. Great to see the team battle when behind, especially the bench guys and our rookies.

  11. JumboShrimp says:

    Dickson is working out better than Ryan Franklin.
    The Reds have to be running scared now.

  12. Leebo says:

    GOSH DARNIT TO HECK!! To battle all the way back like that and then fall short is very frustrating. I didn’t like the Cardinals stratagy of spotting the other team 8 runs. I hope TLR shelves that game plan for the rest of the year.

    • Kansasbirdman says:

      I agree that wouldn’t be a very good strategy. Toug loss, but I was as encouraged or more by last night’s game compared to the two previous in that the team never gave up and battled back, especially the young guys making some clutch hits and some stingy pitching. Plus our runs weren’t all the result of homers, we got some good hits. All that bodes well for a team looking for postseason success
