I've talked before about this twitter thing is really exciting in that it has opened some doors we used to not have with communicating with players.  For instance, I've congratulated Telvin Nash and Ryan Humphrey when they had a big game and they both responded, which was pretty cool.  I also asked Brad Dydalewicz two questions about his new role in the bullpen, in which he answered.  He likes the pen but prefers to start and the organization hasn't told him whether this is the new plan for him or if it's temporary.  Also, we have been able to find out about promotions from the players twitter themselves before the organization announces it or it comes up on the transaction pages on  We found out first hand from Jordan Comadena and Dallas Keuchel that they got their promotions. 

All of that is well and good, if you know how to use it.  I'm still learning.  So, I've been mentioned with this hashtag thing a few times and I have no idea what it means.  What is #FF?  I see people thanking others for it, so it's obviously a good thing, but I have no idea what it is. So, if anyone can tell me, that would be great!

Also, tonight is Jordan Lyles second start for Round Rock and frequent commenter/Farmstros Five fill-in, StreetJL, may be in attendance.  He will be tweeting live from the game if he is there and Farmstros will be too while he listens in on the live radio stream on the internet.  You can to to his blog for some more information on it under Monday Night with Capps.  Farmstros has also invited me to join in on the action with updates from around the organization as well.  I told him my life is pretty random at this point, but if I'm around the house, I'll be updating.  So, follow StreetJL, Farmstros, and possibly me on Twitter tonight!
