NotGraphs Community Service Project

I just had an idea for a fun project. Let’s find an MLB Player with one of the fewest numbers of Twitter followers and make him really happy.

My quick investigation tells me it’s definitely not Nick Swisher, who has 1,446,260 followers.

So here are my nominees:

Jordan Lyles (1,406 followers):

Anthony Bass (1,311 followers):

Micah Owings (1,032 followers):

Matt Mangini (908 followers):

Jeff Keppinger (640 followers):

Chris Gimenez (536 followers)

Take the poll, so we can pick an account to follow. You can also write in your own choice.

    Anthony Bass and Micah Owings are out due to my religious intolerance.

    Chris Giminez is out because I hate the Giants.

    I think smoking is disgusting, just say no to Matt Mangini

    That leaves Jeff Keppinger and Jordan Lyles.
    Keppinger’s tweet is very focused and matter of fact. I like that. But he doesn’t seem to like his kids.
    Lyles’ tweet, I’m not sure what ‘shooter’ he’s referring to, but I like red-heads.

    Gonna have to go with the prospect over the gritty vet.

    Lyles all the way

    Its got to be Gimenez. I mean, he’s on the Mariners, so he can definitely use the most cheering up.

    Lyles, because that tweet is clearly an inside thing and makes no sense, and those tweets are potentially really funny.

    Jeff Keppinger and his unstoppable bat are the obvious choice here. Jordan Lyles has nothing on him.
