Around 2pm ET yesterday, amid the experiment in exhaustion that was the author’s Twitter feed ahead of the 4pm ET trade deadline, Arizona pitching prospect Jarrod Parker reminded us all of what’s really important in life — i.e. Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.
The observant reader will also note that Parker’s tweet was RT’d by Arizona starting pitcher Daniel Hudson. I’m not sure if Emily Post has addressed this in the most recent edition of Etiquette, but I’m curious if it represents an honor of sorts for a minor leaguer to be recognized by a major leaguer. Sociology, what?
