Hudson's new teammates tweet their excitement

Feb 5, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

This morning a couple of Orlando Hudson’s new teammates used Twitter to offer their thoughts on the Twins signing the veteran second baseman late last night.
First, here’s a tweet from reliever Pat Neshek:

Love the O-Hud signing, what a team!

And now here’s one from center fielder and leadoff man Denard Span:

Wake up this morning to see we signed the o dog! If ur a twins fan today u have to be juiced! I thought we already were lookin good before we got him but now it’s lookin pretty darn good! I think he’s gonna be good for the clubhouse as well! Another veteran presence

Incidentally, Span joined Twitter on Sunday afternoon and has already posted 127 tweets. Seriously. And some of them are pretty entertaining, including a string of updates about farting up the Minneapolis airport on the way back to his home in Florida and then a bit about how Minnesotans are crazy to live in the horrible weather all year.
Span is right, of course. About the weather, about farting, about Hudson, about everything.

    Gardy: What the fuck is Twitter?
    Love DSpan’s twitter – personal highlight is a tweet to Twins fans about him possibly getting a contract extension and staying in Minnesota longterm- “… u never know what the future beholds.”
    True dat, true dat, true true dat dat dat

    Those tweets just bumped him up a few spots in ADP.

    Can we start using D-Span as his new nickname? Possibly the best self-given nickname I’ve heard.

    Not as good as T-Bone.

    I thought Deez-Nards was the best Span nickname.

    Grown men “tweet their excitement” just sounds so wrong.
