Ok, Twitter — pull up a chair, and buckle up for a wild, bizarre, hilarious story...
Have you ever heard of an online catfish scheme that actually and totally *worked,* in every possible way? I had not, until I found myself strangely in the middle of the following scenario...
A @GuyBensonShow listener named Michael DM’d me on Instagram (@guypbenson) a few weeks ago asking for a favor. I’m not typically inclined to entertain such requests from total strangers, but the backstory was irresistible...

1/Forgive a string on the current state of the schedule. What exists today is a version that on Thursday was okayed by the union and has the #Yankees at #Nationals on 7/23. But now that version of the schedule is out with teams, who will provide feedback.
2/Keep in mind that in a standard yr an MLB sked is a Jenga game of moving parts with what facilities are available when, what do national TV partners need, following off day provisions in the CBA, etc. So imagine even with far fewer games the variables being weighed now.
3/A month ago MLB would have been thrilled to play games in Az/Fla/Tex. Now it might have to rejigger the sked to avoid or maybe even eliminate them. It is 1 reason not to expect MLB to announce a sked this coming week, maybe even longer. A sked is usually done as much in

So here's what I know on the #Yankees/other MLB teams potentially cheating stuff (thread):
A source told me late last year that the Yankees allegedly had three different cameras set up in the outfield in 2017 — left, right and center — trained on the catcher's mitt to steal signs.
Those signs would then be decoded in the dugout and relayed to the hitter during games/at-bats. It had been happening in 2017 and before. Really, stuff that we kind of already knew.

The Bolivian Air Force said that a presidential helicopter that was moving to @evoespueblo had to make an emergency landing due to a mechanical failure, near Colquiria, La Paz, where the president was inaugurating a road.

Tonight the #Yankees will end their season (postseason) and the #Astros will go on to the World Series which they will likely win. Gotta respect the Astros. Unbelievable hitting team that went all in by nabbing Brantley, Verlander, Greinke, Cole, developing McCullers Jr. Dom team
Springer, Brantley, Bregmann, Correa, Altuve, Gurrriel, + L/R matchup fillers like Reddick & Marisnick ...just a freaking beast of a team with really good starting pitching. Chironos sleeps like a giant too. I’ve been in awe all season.
Nationals will lose to either NYY or HOU bc WAS sux. That. Is. All.

Ya' know what brings a smile to Derek's face? Sketches. He takes more joy in these simple gifts than any store bought gift. If you are an #artistsontwitter I hope you consider participating in #sketchesforDerek. He takes his #sketchbook to the hospital with him for chemo. ImageImageImageImage
Sketches should be 8X10 or smaller. DM for address. Derek has next MRI this Friday and then checks back into @SanfordHealth Children's Castle for the start of round 4 of 9 Chemotherapy treatments on 6/6. Help my boy smile.

1/Some quick thoughts on #Yankees reaching agreement with Tulowitzki. They thought he looked athletic and healthy in workouts and see agreement as low-risk (MLB minimum)/potential high reward. Plan is for him to play SS. If he is even league avg and provides a bridge until
2/Gregorius returns, it would be a win for the NYY considering the low cost. Obviously the big question is what does this mean for Machado. It gives the NYY a bit more leverage if they are following their planned script - to offer fewer yrs/$ than #Phillies #Whitesox are likely
3/to bid and then see if Machado follows his heart to NY (to play 3b and insurance at SS if Tulo can't physically hack it) or follows $ elsewhere. It also is possible that this takes them out of Machado and they just are not making those plans public because

Having to look at Rudy Giuliani for 9 whole innings in a pressure-filled Wild Card game is a fucking crime against humanity. #Yankees
My biggest hope is no longer a Yankee win. It's that the game doesn't go into extra innings so we don't have to look at his face for even longer.
HEY @MLB @TBSNetwork PLEASE PROVIDE WARNINGS BEFORE THAT MAN APPEARS ON SCREEN NOBODY SHOULD BE SUBJECTED TO THIS
