It’s that time of year again. We’ve got highs below freezing in St. Louis. Meanwhile we’ve got the Cardinals players reporting to Jupiter, Florida for Spring Training. Blowing up your twitter feed with pics of baseball in the sun while you stare out your office window to a snow covered city. Baseball is back.
But there’s been some roster changes. What is a fan to do if they don’t want to miss a sun soaked selfie by their old and soon to be favorites. We’re here to help with your unofficial guide to following the St. Louis Cardinals on Twitter. Birds.
Yadier Molina – @Yadimolina04
Yadi has an unorthodox method of circumventing Twitter’s policy of not showing previews of Instagram photos, but his selfie game is strong enough to make up for it.

Carlos Martinez – @Tsunamy27
Speaking of Yadi. He requested Carlos get the locker next to him so we’ll put their Twitter feeds together as well. And he’s cleaned up the favorites.
Lance Lynn – @lancelynn31
Lynn is new to Twitter. He’s only got 7 tweets1, but they’re all since inking his new 3 year deal on January 15th.
Adam Wainwright – @UncleCharlie50
Waino has one of the best nicknames on the Birds.2 He has easily the best Twitter username. And he’s leading the team in manatees spotted in his backyard.
Look who showed up today right in my backyard! A #manatee. This old boy was huge! http://t.co/GLcs2THmzv #SpringTraining — Adam Wainwright (@UncleCharlie50) February 13, 2015
Matt Carpenter – @MattCarp13
Speaking of great nicknames, Marp is also on Twitter.
Jason Heyward – @JasonHeyward
If Heyward’s Twitter feed is any indication he’s set to quickly become a fan favorite.
Thank you #CardinalNation @Cardinals for the warm WELCOME! Honored to be a part of the family!

Jon Jay – @jonjayu
Jon Jay is pretty active on Twitter. Lots of Miami Hurricanes talk. Lots of photos.
Trevor Rosenthal – @TrevRosenthal
Rosey doesn’t tweet too much. I assume he’s too busy working on the heater.
Michael Wacha – @MichaelWacha
Wacha was pretty active on Twitter through January but has gone silent since posting the below photo of Shelby Miller as part of some NFL bet. Hopefully he’s busy getting healthy for the season.
I will keep tweeting out an embarrassing pic of @ShelbyMiller19 once a day until he upholds his end of the deal haha pic.twitter.com/hiHMfdBdAA — Michael Wacha (@MichaelWacha) January 27, 2015
Kolten Wong – @KoltenWong
The Wonger is one of the younger Birds and he’s one of the few over 1,000 tweets. He’s at 65k followers. Let’s hope that number grows up.
Seth Maness – @Maness_43
Seth Maness hasn’t tweeted an original tweet since March of last year, and his profile picture looks like it could be from his prom.
Marco Gonzales – @MarcoGonzales_
Marco is one of the more active Birds on Twitter, and he posted a Dumb and Dumber reference. Name this guy a starter already.
I don’t usually pick up hitchhikers. Buuuuut I’m going to go with my instinct on this one. @monicazender pic.twitter.com/Fdwb78o59G

Kevin Siegrist – @KevinSiegrist
Siegrist doesn’t have many tweets, but he did retweet the Sabres calling the Blues out when they threw some shade on Buffalo in this little exchange.
@StLouisBlues Actually it is sunny today☀️ pic.twitter.com/q9HeiFkMAm — Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) February 5, 2015
Jordan Walden – @JWal52
One of the newer additions to the Birds. He’s only got 64 tweets. Stay tuned.
Tommy Pham – @TphamLV
Pham doesn’t have a huge presence on Twitter right now, but he’s poised to breakout.
Randal Grichuk – @RGrich15
Randy can hit bombs off Clayton Kershaw and apparently buy boots that Jon Jay would love.
Can’t wait to show @jonjayU my new boots I bought !! He’s going to love them
— Randal Grichuk (@RGrich15) February 8, 2015
Mike Matheny – @mikematheny22
Don’t ask Magic Mike for a favorite. He has no favorites.
Nick Greenwood – @Ngreeny23
Greenwood has a nice profile shot downing a Diesel after clinching the NL Central.
Sam Tuivailala – @Stuivailala
Tuivailala may not be that recognizable on the field, but he’s got 22.5k+ tweets.
Ty Kelly – @tykelly11
Ty Kelly has moved around a bit his short time as a professional baseball player, and he makes fun of that with his Twitter profile.
Xavier Scruggs – @Xavier_Scruggs
Scruggs is all over twitter with over 10k tweets. He’s also on Instagram.
