One of the cool things about Spring Training this year is that a few players are Tweeting the experience, not to mention all of the reporters being on Twitter for instantaneous analysis and breaking news.
Justin De Fratus (BlueClaws 2009)
2day wasnt great. Struggled w/ FB command. But had a good slider. Not the end of the world Gotta take the good w/ bad. 1st one outa the way.
got lit up like a christmas tree… and deserved every bit of it… falling behind 2-0 to 4 of 6 hitters isnt gonna get it done
Sometimes you get stuff like this, from David Hale of the Delaware Online.
Note from Charlie on DeFratus: “He’s the first guy here at the ballpark aside from Halladay. Halladay beats him, but he’s getting close.”
Jiwan James (BlueClaws 2010) notes that former BlueClaw Anthony Gose won their poker game last night but…
It has been confirmed. GOSE cheated. We been playin with 51 cards the whole night. 7 of hearts been in the box all night. SMH!!!
Personally, via Twitter, you can really get a lot more out of Spring Training from 1,150 miles away. Give it a shot!
