We should probably keep our eye on Corey Wimberly

Wimberly

I didn’t have any idea who Corey Wimberly was either. But then he got traded from the Athletics to the Pirates for pitcher Ryan Kelly today and he took to Twitter about it, where he goes by the name Wimboslice3:

just got traded to the pirates!!!!!!!!!

Black and yellow black and yellow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

… david forth called me and told me they traded me to the pirates i didnt ask im pumped slice got new life lol

No “I’m just happy to have a chance to help the ballclub” jazz in the age of social media. I love it.  I love his Twitter bio even more:

“Minor league stud 4A playa whatever u wanna call me till they let me in the door!!!!!!!”

Anyone who says there’s a lack of enthusiasm about Pirates baseball is going to need to change their tune once Wimboslice3 makes it to Bradenton in February.

    There is lots of love for Corey Wimberly in A’s fandom. He backflips to his position, he wears highsocks AND Stirrups, he plays lots of positions. He just has a weak bat. I really hopes he gets a chance in Pittsburgh.
