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 highlight gifs. Twitter can be an easy way to get to know more about your favorite players and teams, and catch a few laughs in the process. There's also a glut of absolute value-less tweets that make brains hurt. Ultimately, Twitter can be a convenient way to kill a few minutes (or hours) of your time and get your sports fix on.
We here at LGT understand it's easy to miss stuff in that giant Twitter universe. Life has a habit of getting in the way of checking your timeline hourly for new cat gifs or to see where Kim Kardishian is shopping next. With that in mind, we're doing the work for you, digging deep to find the latest and greatest Tribe stuff on Twitter.
We've got Jason Kipnis flashing his range, surprising Bryan Shaw numbers, two Michael Brantley appearances, and more. Enjoy!

Better Against Lefties
Bryan Shaw has been better vs. LHB than RHB this year, to which he credits the development of his backdoor cutter: pic.twitter.com/WZIE4jbOpi— August Fagerstrom (@AugustF_MLB) September 15, 2015

Swings and Misses
Since 2013 Michael Brantley has 263 swings & misses. There are 33 players this year that have at least that many swings & misses.— Daren Willman (@darenw) September 14, 2015
