Twitter is a smorgasbord of stuff for sports fans.
Much of that stuff is useful; such as stats, quotes, updates on injuries or game scores, images, video links, and highlights. Twitter also features plenty of fluff, content that might not be enlightening, but is entertaining and fun. It can be an easy way to get to know more about your favorite players and teams, and catch a few laughs along the way. There's also a glut of absolute valueless tweets, stuff that make brains hurt.
It's easy to miss stuff in that giant Twitter-verse. Life has a habit of getting in the way of checking your timeline hourly for new cat GIFs and things like that. With that in mind, I'm doing the work for you, digging deep to find the latest and greatest Tribe stuff on Twitter.
You'll find tweets on Yan Gomes and Gio Urshela's defense, the recent trades of Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher, fun stats, and more.
Q: How do you catch Brett Gardner stealing when he tops out at 21mph? A: Be Yan Gomes, with a 1.68 sec pop time and a 78mph throw.— August Fagerstrom (@AugustF_MLB) August 12, 2015
Heck of a month
Clint Frazier named Carolina League Player of the Month. Posted an even 1.000 OPS in July.— Al Ciammaichella (@Gotribe31) August 11, 2015
Solid crowds lately

Wishing him the best
Michael Bourn is a great, calming presence for any clubhouse. He was always willing to talk to reporters during the toughest of times.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) August 7, 2015
Wouldve loved to have seen Swisher play well here. Couldve owned this town rather than been run out of it. Each interview was an experience.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) August 7, 2015
Hasn't got old yet
This Kaminsky-for-Moss trade is a flat-out heist for the @Indians. Wow. @Cardinals— Jim Callis (@jimcallisMLB) July 30, 2015
Easy to forget how good he is
Since July 7, Michael Brantley's MLB ranks: 6th in AVG, 3rd in OBP, 9th in OPS. Seems pretty good. https://t.co/Q7885fZvPx— Jacob Rosen (@WFNYJacob) August 10, 2015
