That's an amazing statement."

    I think if you're insecure enough to be seeking out to see what people are saying about you, don't be shocked at the results.
    Or someone retreeted those messages to him. But you're right, he could've searched out the messages for himself.

    Sam's problem is eager to figure out:

    Needs to ditch the full beard and go back to the second best mustach in baseball

    Because of his success last season, especially in the playoffs, LeCure has been thrust into a more important role in the bullpen. He's now being called on to pitch in a more pressurized 7th, 8th, and 9th innings instead of long man or mop-up guy. For the last couple of weeks, he hasn't done his job. Maybe his ceiling has been reached?

    I guess Facebook could be garbage, but that's mostly predicated on the people you know being garbage.
    And Twitter is the same way. I mostly follow news organizations and journalists who work for news organizations.

    If you follow anybody and everybody, you're going to get a Twitter feed full of stuff laced with profanity, slackronyms and misspellings that makes you: a) wistful for the bananaphone and b) fearful for the future of the republic.

    Re: Sam LeCure Tweets Out

    I follow quite a few people on Twitter and I rarely see some of the garbage that you guys are talking about so I think it really depends on WHO you follow as to what your timeline will look like. I don't even see a lot of swearing unless it's during a Reds game and a few fans I follow are reacting in real time to stuff that happens there. I have rarely had any problems with Twitter but it could be that I just don't follow the idiots and therefore keep a lot more of my sanity when I'm there, LOL

    BTW-Sam is one of the most even keeled, positive, and upbeat baseball guys I've seen on Twitter (and I follow quite a few of them, both Reds and non Reds players) so if he's responding this way to something, it had to have been REALLY bad because he just doesn't tweet or interact with the fans that way on a normal basis.

    Twitter is what you make of it.

    If you only follow Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal, and Jim Kramer, then you only get investing/financial news. You never have to see who is "sipping on a latte with my fuzzy dog on my lap" type of news.

    I only really follow reputable news sources. My twitter is for informational purposes only...I don't even follow my best friends, because that is not what it is for, for me.

    I also don't find anything wrong with what he said, though I would typically be in the "keep your mouth shut" camp.

    Maybe he'll have a Bruce like run after this. Maybe Jay suggested it? Maybe Sam got that Life Coach that Jay suggested too???

    I don't see what that has to do with anything. Even the guys who were born to throw the ball 100 MPH don't go a season without giving up some runs and failing in some situations.

    Say what? I think you are making some pretty big assumptions about everybody else here...

    Yeah, because if they don't go 162-0 they really suck.

    Give me a break.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
