From time to time, our Aaron Miles’ Fastball Twitter or email accounts will get messages thinking that we are actually Aaron. Obviously we are not, and he wasn’t on Twitter … until now.
I happen to be Facebook friends with Aaron (not bragging, just saying) and saw a post this morning where he said he’d joined Twitter — find him at @AaronMiles5. Of course I immediately followed him from my own and the AMF accounts, and tweeted the news out.
A bit later this tweet appeared.
Don’t recall why he’s mentioning Skip? Did you forget that epic match-up from last August during the horrible three-game sweep by the Dodgers? Here’s a look back — complete with a mention from Al Hrabosky as to why our site has its name (and, Al, it’s five pitching performances, all as a Cardinal). And, of course, Aaron won that battle. “Got Heem” indeed.
As for the name of the site, we did have a suggestion last August about changing the name to Skip Schumaker’s Slider following that performance. But, nope — can’t do it. At least not until Skip catches up to Aaron’s pitching line.
Anyway, if you’re on Twitter, give him a follow. And, Aaron, sincere wishes that you make it back to the majors again. We’d love to see you on the pitcher’s mound — and in the field too, of course.
Also, everything said the other day was absolutely meant as a compliment!
