Your Guide to Following the Birds on Twitter

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.

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.

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.  

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.

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.  

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.

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.

 

It has begun. #ST2015
