Are You On Twitter? Chien Ming Wang Is
While he recovers from injury, your favorite Yankees starting pitcher from Taiwan has surfaced… on microblogging site Twitter.
Sure he hasn’t updated anyone with a “tweet” in two months, but who cares? How many other high-profile Major Leaguers do you know that are on Twitter? For your information, his last tweet message was a classic:
“My foot is very itchy in the cast. Thank you to all who are wishing me well.”
Well said by someone who doesn’t speak English and only has 140 characters to get his thoughts across.
Your fearless fantasy baseball leaders at the Dugout are always wishing consistent 19-game winners well in their recovery from injury. Wang won’t be back the rest of this season, but things are looking good for 2009. He played catch on the field at Yankee Stadium on Sunday and continues to work his way back from a right foot injury he suffered June 15.
If you are an active Twitter-er and also a fan of Wang, give him a shout on Twitter. BatBoy BeeZee (aka @jonathanbentz on Twitter) is following him. Wang’s Twitter profile is @chienmingwang.
