Kyle Drabek Live-Tweeted Last Night’s Blue Jays Game

After his second Tommy John surgery Tuesday afternoon, Kyle Drabek, still only 24-years-old, has a long road of rehab in front of him. And, let’s be honest, nobody likes rehab. It’s a real drag.

On Tuesday night, Drabek, for one evening at least, was like the rest of us: Watching the game — Blue Jays visiting the Brewers — on TV at home, high on some drugs.

And it was some bloody game. A graph on NotGraphs, if I may:

As you can see, it was one roller coaster of a game: Multiple lead changes, back-to-back-to-back Blue Jays home runs, a Brewers grand slam, another pair of back-to-back Blue Jays home runs, and, obviously, zero pitching. The night pitching died.

Drabek, from the comfort of home, iPhone in hand, was a lot like everyone else on Twitter: Along for the ride, absolutely butchering the English language, and rooting on his team.

Yeah, I love Drabek’s Twitter avatar, too.
