The MLBDepthCharts Twitter feed has earned it's third top follow list in the last six months (SI.com's Inaugural Top 100 in July; Top Prospect Alert's 'Top 50 Must-Follow Baseball Twitter Account's' earlier this month were the first two. Bleacher Report has released it's top 30 MLB Must-Follows and if the numbers associated with the name mean anything, I came in at #3 behind one of the best baseball writers around, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus and ESPN, and former Rangers' farmhand Michael Schlact, who I finally started following after hearing a lot of great things about his tweeting ability.
Thanks to Matt Trueblood, who wrote the article, although he does mistakenly mention that I do have help with the feed. I do have a team of awesome contributors, who help in many different aspects (magazine, regular season features, podcast, etc.), but the twitter feed, roster projections and updates, for consistency's sake, are solely my work. I like to mention that so people will cut me more slack if I make a mistake once in awhile. In all seriousness, it's an honor to be mentioned with the other names on the list. I guess I'm doing something right. Thanks Matt and Bleacher Report!
